Volkswagen Passat

The Volkswagen Passat is a family car built by Volkswagen through six design generations since 1973. Falling between the Golf/Jetta and Phaeton in the current Volkswagen line-up, the Passat has been badged variously as Dasher, Santana, Quantum, Magotan, Corsar and Carat. More recently, Volkswagen has extended its range with the launch of the Passat CC, a 4-door "coupé" version of the Passat. The latest Passat was first displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005 and launched in Europe in the summer of 2005. The Mk6 Passat (the PQ46 platform) is now based upon the Golf Mk5. Confusingly, this model is sometimes referred to as the "B6" (or "3C") Passat, despite its lack of commonality with the "B6" (Typ 8E) Audi A4. This has happened previously in the Passat's history, with the B3 and B4, which bore no relation to the same-named platforms from Audi. Styling-wise, the car follows the latest design language first introduced on the Volkswagen Phaeton luxury car, and is a something of a departure from the styling of the B5.5 Passat. Although the new design is somewhat controversial, sales have improved over the old model. On the four-wheel drive version, called 4motion, the transverse-engine platform dictated a switch from the Torsen centre differential of the B5, to the Haldex Traction multi-plate clutch. At the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007 Volkswagen launched the in the 'R' line by Volkswagen Individual GmbH the R36. The R36 uses a retuned 300 PS (296 hp/221 kW) / 220kW 3.6 L VR6 engine producing 350Nm of torque, which pushes the Sedan & Variant (estate/wagon) to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.6 & 5.8 seconds respectively. R36 has many distinguished features over the other Passat siblings such as a redesigned front and rear spoilers, 18 inch Omanyt aluminium wheels, 20 mm lower suspension, 'R' engraved stainless steel pedals, 'R' imprinted sport leather seats, Bi-Xenon headlights, and two rear mufflers.
