How it works

Would you like to use your smartphone apps securely and conveniently in your vehicle? Thanks to App-Connect, that is easier than ever. It allows you to conveniently use selected apps and content right in your Volkswagen. They are transmitted to the display of the infotainment system via a wired connection and can be comfortably and clearly controlled within your line of vision. That makes it incredibly easy to access music, news, maps or audiobooks, for example. Volkswagen currently offers three interfaces for connecting with smartphones, with numerous options: Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ by Google and MirrorLink®. The wireless connection option for the Discover Media, Discover Pro and Ready 2 Discover navigation systems makes the use of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ by Google™ particularly convenient for We Connect-ready vehicles. To avoid distraction, only certified apps can be started during the journey. 1

The specified fuel consumption and emission data have been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1 September 2017, certain new vehicles have been type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), a new, more realistic testing process for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Starting on 1 September 2018, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) will be replaced by the WLTP in stages. Owing to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions measured according to the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those measured according to the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. Further information about the differences between the WLTP and NEDC is available at https://www.volkswagen.com.mt/en/owners-and-users/useful-information/wltp.html.

We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. The additional provision of WLTP values is voluntary until their application becomes mandatory. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are provided purely for comparison purposes between the various types of vehicle. Additional equipment and accessories (attachments, tyre format, etc.) could change relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. As well as weather and traffic conditions and personal driving style, these add-ons could also affect a vehicle’s fuel consumption, power consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance.

Further information regarding official fuel consumption and the official, specific CO₂ emissions for new passenger vehicles can be found in the “Guidelines on fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and electricity consumption of new cars” which is available free of charge from all points of sale and DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de/co2).
