Brand New 67 Plate Volkswagen Passat 1.4 TSI R Line 4dr [Panoramic Roof] £19,495 - Arnold Clark

Edited by:"morpheus"Found 6th Oct
I hesitated to post this deal, but hopefully it might help someone:

Brand New 67 Plate Volkswagen Passat1.4 TSI R Line 4dr [Panoramic Roof] from Arnold Clark is currently showing on their website as £19,495. With all the uncertainty about diesel at the moment, that seems a great price for R-Line spec family saloon in petrol variant.

Quite tempted myself but would be interested to hear from anyone who has one already or who has looked at them in person. NB: Please don't bother if you're from 1980 and think 1.4 engines are still the same now as they were then....

the ambient pack is the only extra I can see and its still cheaper but could be missing something else

Can you do scrappage discount at this price?

Dunno about the Arnold Clark link but on Car File it says:

SCRAPPAGE CUSTOMERS!
VW HAVE ANNOUNCED A SCRAPPAGE ALLOWANCE ON THE VW PASSAT. HOWEVER BECAUSE OUR DISCOUNTS ARE MONUMENTAL ALREADY, PART OF OUR DISCOUNTS ARE REPLACED BY SCRAPPAGE. THE NET RESULT IS THAT YOU WILL GET A FURTHER £650, £950 OR £1250 FOR YOUR SCRAPPAGE VEHICLE DEPENDENT ON THE VERSION OF PASSAT CHOSEN.(PASSAT GTE IS £1650) IF YOU HAVE SCRAPPAGE AND WANT VW FINANCE THEN THERE WILL BE NO DEPOSIT CONTRIBUTION AVAILABLE AND THE APR IS 6.0%. THE VW SERVICE PLAN OFFER AT £149 IS STILL AVAILABLE AS PART OF A PCP ORDER.

£160 road tax, no thanks

New tax rules will be more than £160 a year, no?

Theres a charge for the first year tax it all depends on how much emissions it outputs, unless someone can correct me on that? Apart from that, car tax is the same price across all cars which is currently £140 per year (obviously go up with inflation over the years) apart from electric which is still free. You get an additional charge if the total purchase price is above £40k for the first 5 years of the car also

Cheaper at Drive the deal and you can get £5k scrappage on it plus it isn't Arnold Clark who are on par with Inchcape in the appalling garages league tables.

Want this car in 1.4TSI 150 R-Line DSG version. Can't find any cheaper than £22593 from autoebid without extra options. Don't have diesel to scrap and I think they won't give extra discount for it anyway.

Update from AC from anyone thinking of going for this:

"The offer was due to end, but looks like they have been granted a little more time to offer this deal, i'd be unsure how long it will still be there for however. Also, our Volkswagen branches are all located in Scotland."

I was dubious, but looks like you're right:

Base price = £19,133 then add back the £3,625 (finance) discount which you can't get if using scrappage = £22,758. But then take away the £5k scrappage = £17,758..... Thats a massive saving on my OP - surely there's a mistake in there somewhere? Just wish I had a diesel car to trade in, mine's petrol....

Don’t confuse them with the reality of the nations manufacturing.
They’re dreaming of an imperialist past when Britannia ruled the waves and the biggest export was slavery.

Not really. The 1.4 at 125bhp or 150bhp are massively underpowered for a car of the Passat’s size, not to mention it weighs around 1500kg before people get in it.

I own a VW, and would touch an engine that small unless I was buying a Polo or smaller (maybe a Golf at a push). Not looking for the 1.4 to take on sports cars at traffic lights, but if you have to throttle the giblets off it, then it’s not enjoyable to drive.

Not only that, but the 1.4 engine option will have a massive impact on resale value both private and dealership.

Lovely car, but a pants engine to put inside it.(y)

The issue here isn't the car (if you like that sort of thing) - it's the dealer!

I wasn't talking about European brands owned by them, but their native cars. All the Brexiters - instead of your Mercs, Audis and Beemers, start buying Tatas, Dongfengs and Ladas!

Completely agree, though the 150BHP 1.4TSI is definitely fine in a Golf, A3 or any other VAG car in that size, it is more powerful engine than my old 2.0L Golf! There has to be a question mark of its performance in reality rather than just pure stats in terms of hp & torque.

It does feel like a solution for someone who really wants a cheap big car but doesn't mind a slow one. I've gotta wonder how comfortable it would be on the motorway, not sure what kind of response you would get from the throttle
