“We will launch the all new edition of Passat in the Indian market by March 2011. It will be launched at the same time as the ‘Think Blue’ campaign is introduced in the country,” Volkswagen Group Sales India’s Director, Neeraj Garg, said.
“The all new Volkswagen Passat will come to India with BlueMotion features like start stop, brake energy recuperation, DSG duel clutch gear box, gear shift indicator and an extremely fuel efficient engine,” he said.
Powered with a 1.8 liter fuel-efficient, TSI petrol engine producing 140bhp, this car will have a 6-speed DSG gearbox allowing the driver to switch between manual and automatic transmission. This includes a gear shift indicator, brake energy recuperation, and comfortable interiors.
