The new Volkswagen Passat Interior Design
The countdown has begun: the 30 millionth Passat will leave the assembly line this spring.
This landmark makes it the most successful mid-size model worldwide.
And that's not all.
After the Golf (35 million vehicles) - and ahead of the legendary Beetle (21.5 million units) - the Volkswagen Passat is one of the three most popular vehicles from Volkswagen to date.
One thing is certain: the 30 millionth Passat will be one of the first examples of the significantly enhanced eighth generation.
A major technical update sees the new Passat incorporate the latest brand innovations.
Pre-sales will start in May 2019 in some European countries and the market launch will start from the end of August 2019 onwards (Germany).
Volkswagen has fine-tuned the Passat's design for an even more commanding presence on the road in either saloon or estate form.
The front and rear bumpers, the radiator grille and the Passat logo, now located centrally at the rear, have all been redesigned.
In addition, new LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights, and LED tail light clusters ensure a distinctive design.
Colours like Lapiz Blue, Bottlegreen, and Sandgold are new to the Volkswagen Passat.
In addition, four new styles of 17, 18, and 19-inch alloy wheels extend the wheel range.
