We’ve known for several months that the Volkswagen Passat as we know it will have at least another generation. New information from the British website AutoExpress says it will likely not be sold as a sedan. The station wagon will remain on display and the sedan will replace the hatchback or liftback.
The technical basis is to be on the MQB platform, on which the Passat stands today. It is currently under development alongside the next generation شكkoda Superb, with which it will share the production line at the plant in Bratislava from 2023. The joint development that could explain the transition from a sedan to a recoil body – the cool design also has one.
For the new model, the priority should be adaptation and practicality, so that the passes are more distinguished from a similar large arteon. This indicates that Arteon will remain on display, but other sources in his case say he will not get the second generation. In this case, the interesting GT will disappear from Volkswagen’s offer; It wouldn’t be the first time this company has preferred a boring but commercially successful car over an interesting one.

The Passat is set to have a longer wheelbase in the next generation to better compete with the impressive space in the rear seats, but a larger boot is also expected. It’s also supposed to keep a diesel engine under the hood – the two-liter four-cylinder engine with 150 or 200 hp, and it’s also available with a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
With regard to gasoline engines, the British state indicated that plug-in hybrid engines should play a major role. The base engine called the eHybrid should have around 200 hp, and the more powerful GTE should have 245 hp and a larger battery compared to the current GTE passat. So it should be able to travel up to 97 km without domestic emissions and hold a charging power of 11 kW.
