VW might develop Passat Coupe and Cabrio image

The German based automaker Volkswagen will probably offer two new versions of the popular Passat model, once the new generation of the vehicle will finally hit the market.

Rumors are saying that Volkswagen is planning to introduce two new body styles of the new Passat generation, a coupe and a convertible, but no official announcement on this subject has been made just yet. According to the guys at Autobild, the new Passat generation, along with the possible coupe and convertible versions, will ride on the MQB platform, the same one used on the Golf, A3 or Leon, and it should include a number of versions, like the sedan, the wagon, the Alltrack, the coupe, convertible and even a hatchback.

The upcoming VW Passat, in its sedan and wagon body styles, is believed to be officially unveiled in November 2014, while the Alltrack should come in 2015. The new Passat CC should make its way onto the market in 2016 but it currently remains unknown whether the coupe, the convertible or the hatchback will finally receive the green light. As far as the engine lineup goes, this will include units ranging from 1.4 liters to 2.0 liters, petrol and diesel burners, with outputs from 116 HP to 220 HP. The Passat R should come with 300 HP.
