2019 Passat: from the front.




Sure it is different. But it doesn't seem really more modern. After 8 years!
(The current one started production in January 2011. Almost 8 years before the new one goes on sale)

The new one is supposed to be about 3 to 4 inches longer. So even roomier I guess.
Sales went from over 125 000 in 2012, to 60 722 last year.
Basically following the market trend. 

If VW still wants to be in the sedan market, they need something great. 
This will be competing with the revised Mazda6. A great car. The all new Accord. An even better one.
An all new Altima. Plus a "still" super popular new Camry (sold over 387 000 last year and already over 150 000 this year)

I have a 2014 Passat that i plan to replace in about 2 years, the car has been excellent, sure it's boring to look at but it's very reliable and super smooth and comfortable to drive. Maybe i will consider the new one but it needs to come with more power.

I do Like more the looks of the old one.

The new passat looks more generic.

Is this the US model?

Yes, the US/China model. Europe has a different, slightly smaller Passat.

Hey Vince, where do you get access to all the numbers? How do you know that the Camery is already at 150,000 halfway through 2018.... i want access to these numbers too... not specifically for these cars. Is it public information?
