VW Passat: 247hp performance concept coming to Detroit Motor Show

VW Passat

VW will show a 247hp VW Passat performance concept at the Detroit Motor Show.

That’s something VW acknowledges, but adds it’s what is hiding under the hood that counts. There you will find VW’s newer EA888 1.8 liter turbocharged and direct-injected TSI four-cylinder engine, which in this application delivers 247hp horsepower (250PS / 184kW) and is matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

A lowered sport suspension and electro-mechanical steering to enhance handling complete the limited performance upgrades on the Passat.
