Spyshots: 2014 Volkswagen Passat Test Mule
Our spies have captured a test mule for the next generation Passat in a station wagon configuration, while it was undergoing cold weather testing in Euro. It’s hard to believe the MQB will underpin both this giant family car and the new A3, but it will also do so while cutting costs and simplifying production.
Judging by the way the wheels sit on the test mule. The Passat will become a bit wider with the arrival of the new generation. Also, the instrument cluster and part of the dash were covered up, so we expect the mule has been fitted with some of the new Passat’s tech.
