Volkwagen will be showing us the tuned up Passat at theuned up Passat at the recent 2013 Detroit Auto Show. It 2013 Detroit Auto Show. It will be called as the Volkswagen Passat Performance Concept. Besides that, it also has been tuned up to 250 horsepower, fitted to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The great 250 horses have been gained from the perfectly great EA888 1.8 liter engine. The fact is that the 250 horses can be achieved easily and there is also a fact that the next generation Golf platform-based range of cars appears to have 1.8 liter rather than 2.0 liter engines as the range toppers open doors to the probability that the next generation GTI models could have 1.8hat the next generation GTI models could have 1.8 liter engines instead of the 2.0 liter ones.
Besides that, the other differences between this car and the Passat Performance Concept is a dual exhaust system, the 19-inch of “Luxor” alloy wheels, the Bi-Xenon headlights containing the Advanced Front Lighting System (AFS) and the LED taillights and also the carbon applications on the mirror caps. When you go inside, you’ll be able to find the carbon-like touches that dominate the dashboard, corresponding the carbon-style inserts on the two-color leather seating surfaces and also completing the black headliner and side pillars. Meanwhile, a lowered sport suspension and the electro-mechanical steering improved the handling.
You’ll easily recognize that this Passat doesn’t look like the Passat which has been sold in Malaysia. But isn’t just because of the modification stuff like the fancy wheels that they have strapped on. This car is the United States market Passat that is larger than the previous European Passat that we have got previously. You’ll mark it has a really different rear end design different along with a number plate which is mounted on its boot lid in place of the bumper. Get a close look on our gallery below.
