VW has released full details on the technology that will underpin the all-new Passat.

Set to be fully-revealed on July 3 before making its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, the new eighth-generation Passat will be up to 85kg lighter than its predecessor, feature new 237bhp TDI BiTurbo and plug-in hybrid powertrains and be even more spacious than its predecessor.
 
With over 23 million units sold since 1973, the Passat is VW’s best-selling model ever, surpassing even the Beetle. And according Dr Heinz-Jakob Neuser, member of the board for the VW brand, it will be a “new benchmark in this segment”. No official photographs of the car’s exterior are available yet, but sketches shown during the presentation shows a strong family resemblance to the Golf, with a more coupe-like roofline that closes the gap between the Passat Saloon and the sportier CC variant.
