That is the first VW sketch I have seen in years after the Scirocco, that excites. Thank god it doesn't look like another Audi that merely boasts of straight lines, rectangles and leds 500NM of peak torque ought to be explosive. Can't wait.

Unveiled earlier today at the VW Design Center in Potsdam, Germany, the eighth generation Passat, codenamed B8,a clean sheet design.

VW claims a 20 percent better fuel economy, up to 85kg [188 lbs] less weight and a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines – there is even a plug-in hybrid available.

Most of those weight savings can be attributed to the new MQB flexible platform architecture shared with the latest Golf. Compared to the outgoing B7 that is based on the previous B6, the new Passat B8 in sedan trim is 2mm shorter at 4,767mm long and sits 14mm lower, but has an 80mm longer wheelbase at 2,791mm, and is also 12mm wider at 1,832mm.




Other notable features include the extendible head-up display, an app-based Rear Seat Entertainment for tablet computers, Front Assist plus City Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, and what VW says are three world firsts for a vehicle in this class: Emergency Assist (vehicle stops in emergency), Trailer Assist (assisted maneuvering with a trailer) and Traffic Jam Assist.



For Europe a choice of 10 direct injection turbocharged petrol and diesel engines covering a power range from 120PS to 280PS (118hp to 276hp), all of which are fitted with stop-start system and a regenerative braking mode, and meet Euro 6 emission standards.

I have been looking at this segment closely for a while for il have replace my Scala with a car with equal legroom if not more.

Well the new Passat, it looks good no doubt.

But going by the standards set by the new Octavia, il wait for the new Superb

The Passat had always been an interesting car. It offers good VFM,yet couldn't manage great numbers as it got stuck in that transitional market zone.

With this new avatar, VW has really got the basics spot on.Its classy yet sporty, loaded with tech,offers great functionality,and somehow manages to pull on the heart strings

Hope VW prices it well,and doesn't dilute the tech when the car makes it to our shores.
