Just in time for the 2013 Detroit Auto Show which starts today, Volkswagen has unveiled its Passat Performance Concept which will help the brand infuse sales into the North American market with an edge filled with sportiness.
This sport variant of its mid size sedan model boasts of a conservative design style coupled with features like a dual exhaust set-up, 19” wheels, advanced front lighting system, LED taillights and Bi-Xenon headlights. Carbon fixtures are also seen on mirror caps on the Passat Performance Concept model. Interiors are done using carbon motifs and will compliment leather seating surfaces and dashboard design efficiently.
Apart from these interior features, the car has been equipped with an EA888 1.8 liter turbocharged and direct injected four cylinder engine which is capable of producing 247 hp of power. It’s connected to a six speed automatic transmission system which will boost performance further. A performance package which includes lowered sport suspension and electromechanical steering boosts handling experience of this concept car.
