The range consists of front and rear brake pads with 11 Economy Part numbers, (the equivalent of 28 Genuine Part numbers), with additional part numbers planned.

In terms of functional performance and safety, no compromises are made in the design and production of Volkswagen Economy brake pads. They are subjected to comprehensive vehicle testing and meet all Volkswagen AG safety standards.  Volkswagen applies quality standards on all Economy Brake Pads that go beyond DIN, ISO and legislative standards (ECE-R 90)

Technical differences Genuine Brake Pads V Economy Brake Pads

  • Cost savings are achieved through having fewer part numbers and by using a different material compound mix matched to the requirements of older vehicles.

Economy Brake Pad Benefits:

  • Economy Parts products are not specifically designed for a particular vehicle model - high levels of part number consolidation has been achieved to cater for a wide range of vehicles with fewer part numbers
  • Economy Brake Pads undergo an extensive practical test program, including rig, vehicle endurance, and comfort and fading tests. 15 vehicles travelled over 155,000 miles throughoutEuropeto test the first 6 part numbers
  • The braking behavior is no different from that of Genuine Brake Pads. The driver retains the familiar braking feel with the same braking characteristics
  • Volkswagen Group recommends the intermediate plates are replaced at every brake pad change so Rear Economy Brake Pads come complete with four intermediate plates where fitted.
