New Volkswagen Passat spied testing on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway

New Volkswagen Passat spied testing on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway

The latest iteration of the Volkswagen Passat was spotted taking rounds on Indian roads recently. This is one of the few new VW models to be launched in India next year.

The example seen in the pictures was doing test runs on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. The undisguised test mule sported a 2.0 TDI badge indicating that VW India will continue to power the sedan by the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TDI diesel mill. This engine is capable of producing 168bhp of power and will most likely come mated to a six-speed DSG transmission.

New Volkswagen Passat

This new model of the Passat is based on the German carmaker’s new MQB platform. In comparison to its predecessor, this new vehicle has lost 85kg of bulk, all thanks to its lighter construction. Despite being 2mm shorter in its overall length, VW engineers have managed to stretch the saloon’s wheelbase to 2,791mm. This is a full 80mm longer than before. The new VW Passat is also wider by 12mm, while Volkswagen has increased the boot space by 21litres, which now stands at 586litres.

Volkswagen plans to bring about a transformation in their product range with the addition of new cars. This will be accompanied by refreshing their current portfolio as well. When launched, the new VW Passat will compete against the Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry and the upcoming Honda Accord in the Indian market.
