VW Passat

The next-generation VW Passat in 2014 is said to be lighter and even more advanced than the current version.

According to Autoweek.nl, the redesigned model will ride on the new MQB platform which will also underpin the next-generation Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf. This switch will reportedly enable the model to weigh at least 50 kg (110 lbs) less than the current Passat.
Engine options remain a mystery, but there’s word of a plug-in hybrid variant with approximately 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) and an electric-only range of 50 km (31 miles).
