Volkswagen Passat 2015 teaser sketch
May 24, 2014
Volkswagen is set to introduce this fall a new generation of the Passat that the rest of the world enjoys, and we now have official teaser sketches of the car. We’ve already spied a number of prototypes for the new Passat sedan (a wagon is also planned) and seen a leaked photo of the car designed for the Chinese market.
The new Passat, the B8, is scheduled for a world debut at the 2014 Paris Auto Show in October. Although highly stylized, the car in these sketches has a modern look that incorporates a number of VW’s latest design themes.
Key elements include a low visual center of gravity, muscular shoulders, short overhangs, and a multi-slatted grille whose edges continue into the headlights. It’s an impressive design that we hope isn’t watered down too much for production.
