2015 Volkswagen Passat leaked image

The first details and sketches with the 2015 Volkswagen Passat have recently hit the web ahead of its official introduction scheduled for later on this fall.

The development of a new generation of the Volkswagen Passat is no longer a surprise for anyone and it seems that the model in question is close to hitting the production line than we thought. The 2015 Volkswagen Passat has a sportier appearance and it’s coming with a prominent front grille, with distinctive headlights, bulging wheel arches, a dual exhaust system, chrome trim and what seems to be a four-door coupe body style. All of these are offering the model a sporty styling.

The interior design of the new Volkswagen Passat generation will be getting a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a head-up display, a new infotainment system and several other goodies. The 2.0 liter TDI four-cylinder twin turbo engine will be coming with 240 HP (176 kW) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque, mated to a 7-speed DSG and the AWD system. A plug-in hybrid version, using a 1.4 liter TSI engine and a 102 HP (75 kW) electric motor is also expected to make its way onto the model. More details on it remain unknown for the moment.
