Article by Christian A., on October 1, 2014

Volkswagen officially confirmed the fact that the Alltrack version of the Passat (B8) Estate will be unveiled next year in July. Under the hood, we expect to see the powerful 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine that generates 240 hp (176 kW) and 500 Nm of torque but also a less powerful turbocharged version that produces 190 hp (140 kW).

When it comes to petrol engines, the Passat (B8) Alltrack is expected to get a 1.8-liter TSI engine with 180 hp (132 kW) and 280 Nm of torque as well as a more potent 2.0-liter TSI with up to 220 hp (162 kW).

The most fuel-efficient version will get a 1.6-liter TDI with 120 hp and bolted to a 6-speed manual transmission. Just like the previous model, the new Passat Alltrack will feature the 4Motion permanent all-wheel drive system.

When it comes to design, the vehicle will show a rugged look, an increased ground clearance as well as new Valley alloy wheels designed exclusively for Alltrack models.
