VW Passat Performance Concept

Doesn't look much like a real concept to me.
The idea here is to show us that a sportier version of the US Passat is in the cards.
The other news is the engine. The concept uses a 250 version of the new 1.8 Liter Turbo engine.
This engine has been rumored for a couple of years as a replacement for the (US only) 2.5 Liter .

The 2.5 L is currently used in the Beetle, Jetta and Passat in the US.
So this new 1.8 L Unit will be quite popular.

In the Passat, if there is a 250 version that could mean the end of the V6 as well.

Not sure where the old 2.0 Turbo stands in all this....

The OLD passat was "less boring" and they couldn't GIVE them away. Now that their bigger, wider, longer--they're selling like crazy and even made "Car of The Year". I think VW is FINALLY listening to the customers that BUY NEW!
