3 Reasons Parents in Kent Should Embrace the Passat


Choosing a car when you have kids comes with so many more boxes to tick: Is it safe? Is it comfortable? Is there enough in the entertainment department to keep the little ones distracted during family road trips to the Kent seaside? Luckily for all you parents out there, whether you go for a brand new or used model , the Volkswagen Passat ticks every box and then some.

High-Tech Safety Features

The newest version of the Passat comes with some seriously state-of-the-art safety features; including City Emergency Braking which uses a laser sensor to detect other vehicles within a certain range, and automatically preparing the breaks to prevent collisions.
Other super safe features include ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with traction control to prevent skidding, full curtain airbags, Isofix to ensure that your child seats are secure, plus seatbelt warning indicators so you no longer have to ask, “Have you all got your seatbelts on?"

Comfortable on Long Journeys

This one will definitely catch your interest! The Volkswagen Passat comes with a range of fantastic features to ensure you’re comfortable on long journeys with worn-out children. The front seats have heating options and come with lumbar support to soothe lower back pain and the air conditioning is zone controlled, so you can keep the kids warm and snug in the back, while you stay cool as a cucumber up front.

Entertainment Options

To save your sanity and keep your eyes on the road, it’s key to keep the kids entertained while you drive. The VW Composition Media System has a 6.5” colour touch-screen control system for navigation, CD and radio functions and comes with a 64 GB SSD hard drive for storing albums, films and your favourite car singalongs... so you can keep the kids amused while you focus on the driving.

We all want to feel our children are safe, secure and happy (wherever the road may take them), and the Volkswagen Passat does just that. So come down to EuroCanterbury Volkswagen for a family test drive and see for yourself how much safer, simpler and quieter your life as a parent can be, with the Passat.


...and of you still remain sceptical, don't forget the added bonus of Volkswagen's Front Assist plus system, which has Pedestrian Detection. Great for catching rebellious teens trying to sneak out at night...
