All-New 2015 Volkswagen Passat (B8) Arriving Soon


The Philippines will soon get a taste of Volkswagen’s own take on the executive sedan market when it’s set to arrive by the third quarter of this year. The all-new Passat, called B8 by Volkswagen, will exude style, handling, and performance like no other according to a company statement.

Awarded the 2015 European Car of the Year, the all-new Passat comes from a long and storied history that started in 1973. Since then, it has continuously received favorable reviews. The all-new model is set to carry that tradition by offering a highly-efficient and powerful 2.0-liter TSI motor generating 220 horsepower. This engine is mated to a six-speed dual clutch Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission.

Imported straight from Volkswagen’s plant in Wolfsburg, Germany, the all-new Passat features LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, Adaptive Chassis Control, 14-way electric seats, a navigation system, a rear view camera, and a panoramic sunroof.

The all-new Volkswagen Passat will be introduced at a price range between P 2,300,000 to P 2,800,000. Deliveries to customers are expected to start in October of this year.

    1. Originally, they said they'll be offering both diesel and gasoline variants. Hope this plan pushes through (hence the huge price difference in the expected SRP).
