Volkswagen Passat has been the recognized leader in segment D in the European classification for many years. This car very often wins in journalistic comparative tests. That it is used by competitors in the development of their cars of this class, as a «reference point» or reference car. In 2020, Passat will come to us, albeit not in a completely new body, but after modernization. Photos are already online. Details of trim levels and exact prices will be announced later.


The new 2018-2019 Volkswagen Passat model year looks very serious, if not faceless. It’s just a D-class car, no more. It is well tailored and not disfigured by excessive amounts of chromium. The main changes in appearance are purely decorative. New bumpers appeared, fog and rear optics changed shape. The video reviews say that the full width of the back door now flaunts large letters denoting the model. Previously, the nameplate was small and snuggled in the corner.

Salon is in good harmony with the exterior. He is also very strict and quite elegant. As usual with Volkswagen, many elements are borrowed from other models — for example, three familiar climate control knobs. Ergonomics cannot be estimated from the photo of the cabin, but it is really cool. The driver is very comfortable, and the relative position of the main controls is optimal. The main changes in the cabin are a new steering wheel, truncated downwards, and a tiny nameplate with the name of the model between the central vents of the ventilation system. Previously, a small arrow clock was located at the place of this inscription. The Germans seemed to save a little.

In particular, the settings of the suspension systems did not change — there were no complaints about them.

Both units are turbocharged and have direct fuel injection. Gearbox — seven-speed «preselective» DGS.

Also there will be sold Passat in the guise of a rechargeable hybrid. His passport fuel consumption, as well as carbon dioxide emissions (50 g / km) are modest, which allows the owner to count on a subsidy for the purchase and some other bonuses.
