Spy Shots: 2015 Volkswagen Passat Sedan Testing in Spain

Last time we caught the next-generation Volkswagen Passat out testing, all we saw was a mule. Today, however, it looks like Volkswagen took the real deal out for a testing session in Spain. As expected, the car wears tons of camouflage, but even it’s still easy to see that is will be completely revised.

The new Passat will be built on Volkswagen’s new MQB platform — also used for the new Golf — making it the biggest car on that platform. Despite being larger than the current generation, the next Passat will be about 140 to 220 pounds lighter and will get a family of four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel and gasoline engines to help increase fuel efficiency. Volkswagen also plans to work in a plug-in version of the next Passat.

The model will be offered either as sedan or wagon and with optional Haldex 4Motion all-wheel drive. It should arrive on the market sometime in late 2014.

Even though hidden under some deep camouflage, it’s pretty clear that the new Passat will adopt a new design language that includes new front and rear bumpers, and a new set of headlights and taillights.

The general look seems to be a little bit more elegant, with more pronounced lines and deeply pronounced shapes. We also expect a revised interior look and new technologies.
