“So the standard specification includes 16-inch alloy wheels “Copenhagen”, an aerodynamically optimized radiator grille and radiator shutter. The fuel saver is also to “BlueMotion” -Schriftzügen on the radiator grille, visible on the wings and on the boot lid”, is Volkswagen’s way of telling us some details about this particular model.

Besides the aforementioned “goodies”, the vehicle is also getting the 16-inch Copenhagen style alloy wheels, which have a double role. The most important part of the Volkswagen Passat BlueMotion is definitely found under its hood, where the 1.6 liter TDI diesel burner is resting.
