Volkswagen Passat GT Comes From Concept to Production

Published

At the point when Volkswagen revealed the Passat GT idea at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, it looked all around arranged for creation. Things being what they are, there was a purpose behind that.

The Passat GT will make the jump from idea to generation vehicle in the following couple of months, Volkswagen says. It’ll touch base as a component of the 2018 model year, and it could be at dealerships before the finish of the timetable year, yet an official presentation date is yet a secret.

Intro to The Passat GT:

There’s a ton of Golf GTI hot-bring forth motivation in the Passat GT idea. It wears red stripes above and underneath the gleam dark grille, balanced with new guards and an entire pack of dark trim that reaches out to the mirror tops and rooftop. The brakes are red, to coordinate the complement stripes, and there’s a sportier suppressor configuration out back. It rides 0.6 inches lower to the ground than a standard Passat.

Inside, the progressions are more repressed. There’s a carbon-fiber design trim on the entryways and dashboard, and also a dark main event and piano-dark trim on the middle reassure. The games seats shake a dark and dark theme with differentiate sewing, and that is about it.

In the engine is a VR6 engine like a V6. But with a smaller edge between the two barrel banks useful for 280 pull and 258 pound-feet of torque. Expect two driven wheels, the ones in advance. Computerized Trends reports it’ll bear a sticker price $30,000, which would put it underneath the current Passat’s V6 SE trim.
