Plans of Volkswagen concern.

Production of the Volkswagen Passat 2019 model year will continue to focus on the plant in the US city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. The current Passat exists since 2011. Therefore, the car clearly demonstrates its age. It needs to be updated a long time ago. Although in addition to being more than many of its competitors, there is little that still makes this model interesting.

Passat has never been very popular. But this did not stop VW from creating a new Passat GT 2018 model year. The sports version still deserved the gratitude of the world community. She was pleased. But, apparently, the Passat GT will have a very short life cycle. Since the German automaker has already announced a completely new Passat for the United States next year. The new Passat is part of the Transform 2025+ strategy of the automaker. Includes more than 50 cars. Currently they are in development. This is more than ten new models, arriving globally every year until 2020.

Only for the American market Volkswagen plans to produce at least two new models. Annually. 2019 will be the year of the new Passat. This will soon be followed by off-road vehicles based on the MQB platform. Interestingly, VW also wants to bring its popular Amarok model to the US. As evidenced by the recent registration of trademarks.

This German pickup can be a good contender for the recently shown Ford Ranger light truck. The first market after the start of sales in 2019 for the new Volkswagen Passat will be North America. In Russia, it will not appear until the second half of next year.

Presumably the cost of the novelty will remain almost identical to the current generation of the sedan. This means that, depending on the configuration, the new Passat can be purchased at a price of one and a half to three million rubles.

The main competitors of the car are: Cadillac CTS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate S213, Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG, Tesla Model S, Volvo S90, Nissan Altima, Lexus GS and Lincoln MKZ.

Appearance and configuration of the new Passat.

It is known that the upcoming generation of Passat will increase in size even more. To be different from the Volkswagen Jetta 2019. But thanks to the new platform and the extensive use of aluminum for bodywork, the car will become easier. Also stronger and tougher.

It should be noted that the design of the Passat in 2019 for the first time will be led by former vice-president of Porsche design Michael Mauer (Michael Mauer). He started Volkswagen Group Design from the beginning of 2016. If the current Passat with its appearance demonstrates rigor, reliability and mediocrity.

To achieve success, designers should try to add more aggression and dynamics to the new car. Not losing the same laconic solidity at the same time. The novelty should become wider and longer. But at the same time decrease in height. In addition, smooth and smooth body lines should be expected. Also a wide radiator grille with pronounced horizontal crossbeams (possibly chrome plated). And of course modern LED optics with strips of OLED lights.

Interior design and equipment.

The next generation Volkswagen Passat 2019 model year in Russia will be sold in three trim levels: Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. The updated interior looks expensive and solid. It can be compared with a salon of more prestigious models, the price tag of which far exceeds the value of Passat.

The model is definitely moving towards the premium segment, but so far it has not reached it. Designers promise many original «chips». For example, a number of air ducts that are located along the entire width of the front panel look very impressive. Outwardly, they resemble a radiator grille in miniature.

The central console is completely updated.

Now it looks like an inverted truncated cone. On the basis of which is located a modern information and entertainment complex with a 12.3-inch touch screen. There are new buttons and switches on the console. With the help of which you can, in addition to the touch interface, manage various car systems. Between the seats of the first row there is a wide transmission tunnel. On which there is a gear lever and compartments for storage of small things.

The interior is finished with high-quality materials. Including natural leather, wood, veneer, soft plastic and aluminum. The front seats have a good lateral support. Also electric adjustment. On the second row of the couch can accommodate three people. For maximum comfort for passengers a separate air conditioning system is provided. The minimum useful volume of the luggage compartment is 586 liters.
