VW Passat Performance Concept to Debut in Detroit

VW has unveiled the Passat Performance Concept, which will have its official debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show next week. VW says that the concept is "an exercise to hint at Volkswagen's efforts to explore this practical four-door's sportier side." The Passat Performance Concept features a dual exhaust, 19-inch "Luxor" alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights including Advanced Front Lighting System (AFS) and LED taillights and carbon applications on its mirror caps. Inside, carbon-like touches dominate the dashboard, matching the carbon-style inserts on two-color leather seating surfaces and complementing the black headliner and side pillars. A lowered sport suspension and electro-mechanical steering enhance the handling.


The VW Passat Performance Concept is powered by a 1.8 liter turbocharged TSI four-cylinder engine that generates 250 horsepower and that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
