There's still some question about what engines will be available when the new Passat arrives next year. Expect VW's ubiquitous turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and 1.8 TSI units to reappear in the revised model. A new 300-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 will be available in higher-spec trims along with the normal assortment of diesel mills. A hybrid model has also been confirmed by VW.
Soon after the sedan launches outside Europe, the wagon variant will debut along with a possible R36 model. Expect the full details to be revealed before the end of the month. One of my colleagues paid a visit to VW Singapore recently and I understand from him that VW is clearing the existing stocks of Passat.
