According to a recent report, Volkswagen will build the face-lifted Passat in China. The Passat has been a popular car in China since its first introduction several years ago, Shanghai-VW took up the offer to build a new mid sized sedan in China which they later updated and called the Lingyu.
Now, it seems that the revamped Passat will also be tailor-made to cater for the needs of Chinese customers. Besides the standard sedan, Volkswagen will offer a long-wheelbase variant which will be stretched approximately 120mm (4.7 inches).
Production is scheduled to begin early next year, so stay tuned for more information.
