Spy shots: 2015 Volkswagen Passat caught testing

4 posts in this topic

Pics of the next gen Volkswagen Passat have surfaced online The new version will be based on the newly developed MBQ platform, which has been incorporated extensively by VW and its subsidiaries to make the new models. Volkswagen new Passat will see a huge change from the current model and the heavily camouflaged test mule confirms that. New Passat will be more muscular and energetic to look at. The new model will carry many changes, which will make the new Passat even better to look at.

Looks very Audish to me. What do you think?

Here are some spy shots of VW's new midsize coupe testing in China. Word is that it will be slotted between the Jetta and the Passat for some international markets. Actually looks like a longer Jetta to me

The all new Passat just looks like a facelift. It neither look revolutionary nor evolutionary. The tail lamp resemble the outgoing car, but it is a bit thiner. Overall the stance looks very A4-ish (good for the buyers though). Lets hope for the best from VW. :)

The new Passat's slated to launch tomorrow! 

Volkswagen has announced the start of production of its new Passat sedan at its Aurangabad facility with a launch date confirmed for October 10, 2017. The current model is in its eighth generation and will mark a relaunch of the Passat brand in India after the previous-gen model was discontinued in 2014. 

The India-bound Passat will feature Volkswagen's 177hp, 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine paired with a six-speed DSG automatic gearbox. VW had also showcased the Passat GTE at the 2016 Auto Expo though there is confirmation on when it will come to India.

The upcoming Passat will be based on the Volkswagen Group's versatile MQB platform that also underpins the Tiguan, the Skoda Octavia and Superb. It will also underpin the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq SUV. 

Compared to the older model, the new MQB-based Passat boasts a wheelbase that is 80mm longer at 2,791mm, indicating more space on the inside. The new model is also 13mm less in length (4,767mm), 12mm wider (1,832mm) and 13mm shorter (1,456mm) than the previous gen model.

Key rivals to the Passat include the Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry, and the Honda Accord.
