An example is the new Travel Assist. Along with its assistance system, the Passat represents the most advanced version of IQ.DRIVE yet seen.

In addition, the lane guidance with Lane Assist has been optimised with a new multifunction camera. The new IQ.LIGHT - LED matrix headlights also enhance safety and comfort.

The Passat will now be permanently online as the new Infotainment system also comes with an integrated online connectivity unit (OCU) complete with SIM card as standard. As well as improved navigation-related services with real-time information, this encompasses new technologies and offers, music streaming services, Internet radio, the use of updatable web app technology, natural voice control enriched with online content, the seamless use of online services provided by Volkswagen We, and future cloud-based portable vehicle settings. Smartphones (compatible Samsung models) also become a mobile key for opening and starting the Passat.
