Volkswagen decided to take the new Passat Alltrack for a ride and shoot fresh photos with the German model unveiled in world premiere at the Tokyo Auto Show.
VW offers the new Passat Alltrack with a choice of four engines starting with a 2.0-liter TDI diesel available in two power versions: 138hp and 170hp, a 2.0-liter TSI with 208hp and also a 1.8-liter TSI petrol engine offering 158 horses.
As its name says, the model is suitable for all road conditions from normal tarmac to difficult off-road terrain. The German model benefits from the 4Motion all-wheel drive system which features an electrohydraulic Haldex clutch.
The ground clearance has been increased to 165 mm while the breakaway angle is now at 12,8 degrees. Other features of the Passat Alltrack include all-terrain tires, flared fenders, adjustable-height air suspension, roof rails, window surrounds, chrome finish and alloy wheels.
“Many car drivers – from skiers to sailors to globetrotters – are looking for a versatile, offroad vehicle that is also a very spacious passenger car with rugged qualities,” adds the Wolfsburg-based car maker.
