When we tested the facelifted version of the Euro-spec Volkswagen Passat lat year, we found a reliable partner that can cater to your transportation needs. However, the vehicle is approaching the end of its life cycle, with the next generation set to arrive in 2014.
The new Passat will use the VW Group’s new MQB platform, which will also underpin the next Golf and Audi A3, as writes. The move will allow the Passat to be more efficient, as it will save at least 50 kg (110 lbs).

The increased efficiency will also come from the power department, where VW is expected to introduce a hybrid version that should deliver an overall output of 170 hp and offer an all-electric range of 31 miles (50 km). In addition to that, the diesel engines will receive NOx catalysts that will allow them to meet Euro6 emission standards.
