Volkswagen Reveals New Euro-Spec Passat

Now in its eighth generation, the Volkswagen Passat has become one of the most successful European business cars. For its world premiere, the new Passat sports upgraded engines, a lighter body, and the latest technology, infotainment, and convenience systems. According to Volkswagen, this new Passat won't be the same one we see in the U.S. The only similarity is that both will use the MQB platform. Still, this Euro model may give us some cues on what general design themes to expect on our version. The Euro Passat will feature 10 direct injection turbocharged gas and diesel engines that will deliver between 118 and 276 horsepower, and all engines comply with the Euro 6 emission standards. VW also worked on lowering the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by 20 percent, with help from a stop-start system and regenerative braking. For the first time, VW will offer the Passat as a plug-in hybrid, which will pump out around 208 horsepower, making it the most powerful plug-in hybrid in the automaker's lineup. It will also offer an all-electric range of 31 miles. "The new Passat gives the right answers to the major automotive trends of its time. For me this Passat is a premium class car without premium costs," said Martin Winterkorn, chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen, in a statement. And while the Euro Passat may be different from the U.S. version, we expect some of the new engine options to make their way to our market in the near future. Source: Volkswagen
