Volkswagen Passat Performance Concept apeared to us already during the last year, however, not everyone had a chance to learn closely this great car which is pointed out by the power and by the exterior design. New Passat Performance concept car is actually a slightly embellished serial North American “Passat” with a 250-hp 1.8 TSI turbo engine placed under the hood.

The company decided to present officially its car during the great and popular Detroit Auto Show, though ones everybody hear about new concept for Volkswagen Passat, almost everyone decides that it would be something like R-version. However, as it turned out, the Germans had a different idea – first, the Passat appeared to be a pre-production prototype, named Passat Performance Concept, and secondly, it is greatly different by the power of the power unit as it does not exceeds even the 280-strong production version of the atmospheric V6 3.6.

Passat Performance Concept looks not quite sporty, even though this was the initial idea, especially considering that it’s still a concept car (even if formally). From the usual top-end “Passat” differs only in small features, 19-inch alloy wheels, carbon-fiber mirror housings, subtle spoiler on the trunk lid. Though the core is a turbocharged gasoline turbo 1.8 TSI with 250-hp, which, however, is paired with a conventional 6-speed “automatic”.
