2012 VW... Passat, the US version


Here is the 1st official picture of the US Passat.
They have decided to keep the name for their all new, US built mid sized sedan.
Even though it is not the same car as the Euro model anymore.

And for once, I will say that this US model looks much better than the "revised for 2011" European model.

Engines will start with the familiar 2.5 Liter with 170hp.
The TDI and 3.6 Liter V6 will be options.

Base model will start under $20 000, much cheaper than the previous model.

Much more on this car very soon...

HAHAHA, I kew they would keep the Passat name! What a tease VW, what a tease! Too bad that greenhouse reminds me of the 1st generation Volvo S80....so we're talking 1998? The Passat of that year actually looked a bit more original!

So vanilla. So plain. So I'm going to take a nap.

It looks a little better than the Chinese model. Maybe the American built version will be more reliable than the German built Passat. I can say that the Rabbit I owned for 15 years gave me less trouble than the Passat that I owned for 4 years. The Passat swore me off VW's for good and also ever saying anything good about them or the company.
