2016 Volkswagen Passat spied in Sydney ahead of Australian launch

MySpin: Australian cars community MySpin 1 year ago

The all-new 2016 Volkswagen Passat has been spied on the road in Sydney this week, just weeks out from its Australian market launch.

The example shown here, spied by CarAdvice reader ‘tuzii’ around 20 kilometres from Volkswagen Australia headquarters, is badged as a diesel-powered 2.0TDI BlueMotion model.

Revealed in July last year and launched into European showrooms around four months later, the new-generation Passat has been a long time coming for Australian buyers.

As an all-new model, the 2016 ‘B8’ Passat sedan is a tiny 2mm shorter and a slightly more significant 12mm wider than its predecessor, the ‘B7’, while a new 2790mm wheelbase – 79mm longer than before – means that the passenger space has grown by 33mm.

A wagon body will also again be offered, and boot space has increased in both, up 21 litres in the sedan to 586 litres, while the wagon’s 650 litres (seats up) represents a 47-litre increase. Lay the rear seats flat and that grows to 1780 litres.

Australian specifications are still to be revealed, but, internationally, the new Passat range can be had with 10 different engines and tunes. On the petrol front, outputs range from 89kW to 209kW. For diesel buyers the most powerful engine has 179kW on offer.

A plug-in hybrid ‘GTE’ model will also be offered, although that variant is not expected to come to Australia.
