The Alltrack is targeted to customers who need to use their family car also as a towing vehicle, or in light off-road situations.
In comparison with the standard Passat, the new model is characterized by new bumpers in SUV style – with wheel well and side sill flares, a greater off-road ramp angle, approach angle, departure angle and higher ground clearance.
The range of available engines will include two turbocharged direct injection gasoline engines (TSI) with 118 kW / 160 PS and 155 kW / 210 PS and two turbodiesels (TDI) – with 103 kW / 140 PS and 125 kW / 170 PS .
The Passat Alltrack will make its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show and at the Italian Motor Show in Bologna, both open from 3 to 11 December 2011. The market launch is expected for early 2012.
