The just released VW Passat Alltrack will not find its way to the US, because it’s solely based on the European spec VW Passat.
The news is not surprising given that the Passat Alltrack is based on the euro-spec Passat and not the new North American one which is a different and larger model. Volkswagen would have to create a separate Alltrack variant for that North American edition.
Now Volkswagen has said as much.
“Because it’s based on the European Passat, we have no plans to sell it here,” VW of America spokesman Mark Gillies told Inside Line.
