Default New VW Passat

VW are all set to launch the new Passat with seven engine options. Petrol's range from 102ps to 250ps and Diesels from 105 to 170ps. 6 speed automatic and DSG are also being offered. But there are some innovative features in this car.
1. Electronic Parking brake that engages and disengages at the touch of a button.
2. Starting and Locking System dispenses with the conventional ignition key. Instead the central locking transmitter slots into a holder to the right of the steering wheel and the driver then presses it to start the engine. In models equipped with Volkswagen's keyless entry system, now available in the Passat for the first time, the engine simply starts at the touch of button.
3. Automatic distance control.
4. and most interesting. Bluetooth Telephone The Passat has an optional telephone unit with hands-free capability featuring a bluetooth interface. Genial dabei: The ingenious part of the system is that if you have started a telephone call outside the Passat, you can still get in and drive away while continuing the call, provided you have a suitable Bluetooth mobile phone.

Front is beautiful. Rear lights remind me of the Corolla. Why can't they get the front rear combo right?? Every new car has that problem.
