The recently-teased images of the facelifted Volkswagen Passat, which is expected to come to India in 2020 indicate that the sedan will have an aggressive appearance, a modern cabin and a more advanced hybrid engine.
Recently, the German auto manufacturer released several teaser images of the 2020 Passat, which reveals quite a few things about its exterior. You can notice that it carries a more robust design with such features as
Massive and bold grille
LED headlamps which take design cues from the Arteon
Sharp body creases
Flared wheel arches
Touareg SUV-like polishing tail lamps
The Passat sedan will measure greater in dimensions, which leads to a more amber cabin inside.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat will have a more aggressive appearance
Although the teaser does not reveal anything about the interior of the new Passat, we can still guess that it might sport a smarter audio system and a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, usually found on SUVs. An array of active and passive driver support systems such as blind spot monitor and collision mitigating system, autonomous cruise control system, lane-keeping assist, etc is also likely to be found on the new Passat.
The 2020 Passat sedan is likely to have a more advanced cabin
Powering the 2020 facelifted Volkswagen Passat will be a larger version of the 1.4L Evo motor offered in the global market. To be more specific, it will receive the power from the brand-new 1.5L Evo motor. Moreover, the 2.0L engine which is available in the Indian market will remain to be under the hood of the new vehicle. The high-spec GTE variant will be set to team up with the more low-cost hybrid variant to make it more competitive in the Indian auto market. A bigger lithium-ion battery package will be used for a longer travel range with a 48V mild hybrid technology.
Under the hood of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is three engine options
The 2020 Passat sedan will be internationally disclosed in early 2019 and be officially launched in the middle of next year. Volkswagen India is also gearing up to launch the vehicle here in late 2020. For now, it may be too early to anticipate the price of the new sedan.
