Volkswagen is among the most famous car producers in the world. The company is headquartered in Germany, this country being the stage of a continuous battle between brands like Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen, etc. So competition is one of the most productive. At the moment Volkswagen holds the headlines with a few pictures that illustrate the 2015 Volkswagen Passat.
Although the Volkswagen Passat hasn’t officially debuted yet, we know a lot of things about it. It has lost about 85kg (188lbs) compared to the previous generation. It is powered by a couple of 1.4 TSI engines developing 125 PS and 150 PS, respectively. There’s also the usual 1.8 TSI outputting 180 PS and a 2.0 TSI duo producing 220 PS and 280 PS. On the diesel side, there’s the VAG’s typical 1.6 TDI rated at 120 PS and a trio of 2.0-liter TDIs generating 150 PS, 190 PS and 240 PS.
In addition to the weight loss, the new Passat is 2 mm shorter than its older relative, having a 79mm longer wheelbase (at 2.79 meters) as a result of moving the front wheels forward by 29mm and the rear wheels 17mm backwards. It’s also 14mm lower (at 1456mm) and 12mm wider (at 1832mm). The Passat Variant’s trunk’s capacity has increased by 47 liters to 650 liters while the sedan’s trunk has reached from 21 liters to 586 liters. As a consequence, the Passat is more economical. And we also have a 211 PS plug-in hybrid version with a 600 mile (966 km) combined range and 31 mile (50 km) electric range.
Of course that the new 2015 Volkswagen Passat must have it all, so we can discover a lot of goodies in the package. It is equipped with LED headlights and taillights, a TT-inspired digital instrument cluster, head-up display and an extensive variety of assistance systems like Trailer Assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert, City Emergency Braking and Park Assist. The list doesn’t stop here. The way things look like, the Passat will probably become a global vehicle, loved and wanted by a lot of people from all over the world.
