The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is likely to come with a redesigned front fascia featuring a new grille with chrome slats and company's emblem, larger air-intakes, and an overall sharper design as compared to the outgoing model.
Besides that, the updated model will get new LED headlamps with DRLs, 17-inch alloy wheels, and restyled wraparound taillights.
Inside, the India-specific Passat is likely to offer a luxurious five-seater cabin with power adjustable seats wrapped in leather, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a multifunctional steering wheel.
The car will also house a fully-digital instrument console and a touchscreen infotainment panel with connectivity features.
For safety, it will offer driver and passenger airbags, ABS with EBD, blind-spot monitor, and rear traffic alert system.
The details about the mechanical specifications of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat are pretty scarce at the moment. However, according to reports, the car will be powered by a BS6-compliant 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The aforementioned unit is capable of producing 174bhp of maximum power and 280Nm of peak torque.
There is no official information regarding the availability of the facelifted Volkswagen Passat in India yet. But, going by the reports, we expect the German automaker to introduce the updated model to our shores sometime early next year.
