Volkswagen has finally confirmed that deliveries for the new 2018 Passat will begin from January next year while the test drives for the same have already started. The fact that a lot of cutomers want their cars to be 2018 registered has played a major role in this delay. The new Passat is being offered only in two variants - Comfortline and Highline - and the prices start from Rs 29.99 lakh and goes up to Rs 32.99 lakh (ex-showroom India).

The Passat is powered by the same 2.0-litre, turbocharged diesel engine seen on the Skoda Superb. It generates 177PS of power and 350Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed dual clutch transmission that sends power to the front wheels. The ARAI-certified mileage for the Passat is 17.42kmpl.
