Volkswagen is teasing its mostly new 2020 Passat
Mostly new because – the new Passat is built upon the same platform as its outgoing model. That means engines and transmissions probably won’t deviate too far from the outgoing model, either.
Under the hood of the 2020 model is 2.0-liter inline four. Volkswagen is still tight-lipped on the transmission details, but the expectation is the six-speed to carry over from the previous models.

You might be wondering where the exactly the major changes are
There’s been changes with exterior. No like current generation; the 2020 Passat looks more aggressive with sculpted and creased sheetmetal. So is new interior, too. But seating position and seats are mostly unchanged.
Chance to see the Passat in the flesh is at the Detroit auto show this January.
