At the motor show in Detroit, Volkswagen will present the American version of the Passat sedan new generation. The Network has already leaked the first official photos of the model.
As reported by the Carscoops website, the pictures of the “Passat” first appeared on the website Wheelsage is a large database of car pictures where the images are added by users. Currently pictures of the new generation sedan is already deleted, but the portal Carscoops managed to make copies.
The American version of the “Passat” is different from vehicles sold in other markets. For example, the model is only available as a sedan (although in Europe it may be a wagon) and is still not translated into a modular platform MQB. The machine uses a “trolley” PQ46 and even after the change of generation will still be based on it.
The appearance of the “Passat” has not changed much: the company increased the grille, modified headlights and taillights and changed the shape of the third window in the back of the rack. The pictures show a modification of the R-Line with a more aggressive body kit and a small rear spoiler on edge of trunk. Also, the back disappeared chrome strip and there was a big sign “Passat” under the emblem of the brand.
For the model still remained and the power plant. For the sedan will continue to be available only to the 2.0-liter “turboservice” capacity of 176 force and 250 Nm of torque. Because of the rejection of the transition to a modular architecture MQB Passat will have hybrid versions and even digital dashboard.
