This Passat is built on the PQ46 platform that is a stretched version of the PQ45 platform used by the new Golf.

Damned nice backside that baby's got!

... got carried away there

Actually, the brushed aluminium is the only bit I'm not so keen on, and also suspect that it'll be hard to keep looking pristine. Is it compulsory ?-)

thats probably a button to put off the passenger airbag incase no one is sitting there. the + and - are the paddle shifts as in the civic.

Congrats! Bhushan for the new babe in your garage......Looks royal in this colour....Had a brush with the beast yesterday on the e-way when we were coming to Pune.My bro and me were driving back in a Zen..happily cruising at 80 kph when all of a sudden a teal coloured Nissan teana zoomed past followed by a light blue coloured camry and then this unregistered beige coloured passat passed us...I just egged on my bro to catch it.Luckily,there was a lot of traffic on the e-way yesterday and cars,trucks and buses spilled over all the three lanes....managed to get a video but not before getting the Zen to touch 145 kph.... finally all three cars stopped just before the Pune exit...Got a video of the catch up..the guys got a whiff that we were following them..Will post the video shortly...


Rahul.

Most questions have been answered...

Another thing i just discovered. The car has adaptive lighting. Its really good to see the sides of the road which are generally blind.

Also its got a button on the rear view mirror which darkens the mirror to cancel the glare of the head lamps coming from the car following you..

Cheersss

Hey Evo, is it just me or the fact that the car looks really good in white. But I think its too Laura looking from its sides, just cover the rear lights in the second pic & you will know what I mean. But great vehicle, good german interiors except the steering wheel, doesn't get with the rest of the dash.

Just my opinion on the car in general, Enjoy your new ride.!
