2015 Volkswagen Passat – new details emerge, to compete with BMW 3-Series

New details on the 2015 Volkswagen Passat have emerged ahead of the model’s official unveil which has been scheduled for tomorrow (July 3).

The 2015 Volkswagen Passat is one of the most important models made by the company and it seems that it will go upmarket in its newest generation in order to compete with models such as the BMW 3-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and, weirdly, the Audi A4. The model in question will stand at 4,767 mm in length and it will get the standard LED taillights, the optional LED headlights with the Dynamic Light Assist, the 12.3-inch customizable digital instrument cluster from the Audi TT, the head-up display, City Emergency Braking, Side Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and more.

The upcoming Volkswagen Passat will weigh 85 kg (188 lbs) less than the current version and the model will come with a 1.6 TDI unit, producing 120 HP (88 kW), and with a 2.0 TDI with 150 HP (110 kW), 190 HP (140 kW) and 240 HP (176 kW). Petrol versions will include the 1.4 TSI with 125 HP (92 kW) and 150 HP (110 kW), the 1.8 TSI with 180 HP (132 kW) and the 2.0 TSI with 220 HP (162 kW) and 280 HP (206 kW). All units will meet the Euro 6 emission standards and they will be eventually joined by a plug-in hybrid version. The estimated starting price of the new Passat will stand at approximately 26,000 euros.
