VW's BlueMotion technology is available on a lot of cars. Now there's a specific Passat model. Is it any good?

What is it?

This is what happens when Volkswagen go all out to build the most efficient Passat possible. It's a specific model and benefits from a lowered ride height, low-rolling resistance tyres, a smoother radiator grille and clever underbody panels to minimise drag. Saloon models also get a little boot spoiler.
