i liked the side profile of the car ,looking nice and big.the only are of a non inspiring look is the front ,but the three quarter looks would be ok.

Looks quite good. The Passat as such looks quite boring, but this one seems to have made the cut, looks-wise.

Thats a nice looking Passat. So much better than the one on sale right now in India. I'm sure VW would be thinking about getting this version here.

Passat wasn't looking boring,but then this redesigned Passat looks just awesome. The front and side looks are just catching looks. If VW brings this to India they might even put it up for sale as ANOTHER car, like how Skoda did to the Laura.

What is a passat without the rear quarter glass that we have come to expect from many vintages.

Now we'r talkin! This Passat is probably the best looking one ever. I didn't quite think the latest design (the current style,i.e) was anything extra ordinary,but the Vortex looks superb!

Take away the grille and it looks like a genetic mutation of the CLS + 6 series + Peugeot 607 = best looking passat yet.

i have to say the car looks too good for it's segment; i'd say the same for the Merc C-class Avantgarde.

I found one car with a VW logo but looks more like a Logan today morning and discovered that its a Passat! Really pathetic look for its price. This one looks much better though... However me think that they still have issues with designing the backside. Appears like a Cielo with Civic light cluster
