Volkswagen Passat – VW has recently launched an all-new MGB platform and maybe of the very initial few future vehicles which will be underpinned by it’s the Passat, and that is expected to be brought a fresh generation in mid-2014.
The vehicle will just be a tad larger in comparison to the current generation and even though the sedan and of course the estate will help their identity, the cc model will just be moved upmarket, being slotted amongst the 2014 VW Passat and of course the phaeton, along with the car maker expected out to too introduce coupe and convertible versions.
As for our tech goodies which will hide under the hood, VW is believed to remain developing a fresh bitdi ( bi-turbo TDI ) diesel that must provide not less than 200 hp. Another necessary novelty really ought to be a plug-in hybrid version employing a somewhat. 4-liter turbocharged petrol unit and an electric motor, with its combined output sitting at 170 hp and its electric-only vary at 50 km ( 31 miles ). VW should too provide turbocharged petrol units ( tsis ) with displacements of somewhat. 4, somewhat. 8 and 2. Zero liters, with outputs ranging between 130 and 250 hp.
For the challenge, the 2014 VW Passat TDI will use Shell ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel and Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology tires to help reduce rolling resistance and improve fuel efficiency. To precisely measure fuel economy, the Passat TDI has been equipped with a Linear Logic ScanGauge II and a Droid RAZR MAXX HD smartphone to provide Guinness World Records tracking requirements.
