Launched just last week with prices starting from RM160k, we now have a detailed walk-around video of the Malaysian-spec B8 Volkswagen Passat. Do spare a short five minutes to find out all you need to know about this new entry to the D-segment sedan market.
The model in focus here is the range-topping Passat 2.0 TSI Highline, with its 220 PS, 350 Nm engine paired with a six-speed wet dual-clutch DSG – shared with the Mk7 Golf GTI. This one is priced at just under RM200k, but as you’ll see in the video above, it does offer a lot for the asking price.
Two 1.8 TSI models are also available – Trendline and Comfortline – both with a 180 PS, 250 Nm engine and a seven-speed dry dual-clutch DSG. There are quite a few differences between the three variants, most of which are detailed in our walk-around tour.
Do you see it as a viable alternative to the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or even the Mercedes C-Class and BMW 3 Series? Sound off in the comments section below.
