2008 Volkswagen Passat Coupe

Volkswagen has publicly confirmed plans to build an upscale Passat with sleek coupe-like styling, but there’s no need to wait for the 2008 models to see one - we have an artist’s interpretation right here.


The Volkswagen Passat Coupe isn’t expected to be shown until the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, but details are already trickling out. Sources are telling us that the base engine on the coupe will be a four-cylinder with 150 horsepower; the top-of-the-line offerings will include a 280-horsepower 3.6-liter VR6 engine, and a 400-horsepower R36 turbocharged version. Hybrid versions are expected to follow shortly after the initial introduction.

The car will be available with front-wheel drive or with the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

The Volkswagen Passat Coupe will come with 4- and 6-cylinder-engines. Base engine is the 1.4 TFSI with 170 bhp. Top engine will be a 3.6 VR6 with 280 bhp.


As someone who’se been positively salivating over a Mercedes CLS but who thinks of 2-wheel drive gaz guzzlers (CLS550+ only in the US) as 2 steps back in automotive sense & sensibility, I am really hoping the VW 4dr Passat coupĂ© will constitute a gorgeous yet more enlightened alternative (think AWD turbo-diesel - or, if you must, a hybrid that better be fast.) Till then, I’ll keep my Audi quattro.

not too bad, but the VW Passat Coupe from the following website is awesome:

, copy link and check it out for yourself. i really hope that the Passat Coupe from that site is what the final version is going to look like, because if it is, then i will definitely be trading in my 06 (b6) passat for the new version
