Volkswagen has unveiled an updated version of its Passat upper-medium car.

Among the new features is Travel Assist - a function that permits partially automated driving between 0mph and 130mph. 

Other new tech features include a capacitive steering wheel, which detects touches by the driver, along with emergency steering assist and LED matric headlights.

VW's new Modular Infotainment Matrix 3 system makes its debut, featuring wireless Apple Carplay connectivity, as well as an integrated SIM card that allows the car to function online permanently.

Benefits include upgraded real-time sat-nav information, music streaming services, internet radio, voice control, Volkswagen We online services, and future cloud-based portable vehicle services. 

It will also be possible to use smartphones as mobile keys for opening and starting the car. 

A new Digital Cockpit will also be available, with upgraded features over the old Passat's Active Info Display. 

Also announced is an increased electric range for the GTE plug-in hybrid model, up to a provisional 34 miles under the WLTP cycle,.

The new Passat will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
