At the end of 2010 in the framework of the Paris Auto Showthe German concern Volkswagen presented to the public a new version of the well-known universal Passat of the B7 model. For its 37-year history of existence, this car has been successfully implemented in many countries around the world in a total of 15 million units. This popularity was due to a well-planned marketing policy, as well as high quality of assembly. In this article, we will find out whether the new Volkswagen has changed a lot, and how much it costs now.
Looking at the appearance of the station wagon, we cansay that designers this time also did not experiment with appearance, giving only cosmetic changes to the exterior. So, the novelty has found LED headlights and headlights, as well as a slightly redesigned bumper. In general, thanks to such small changes, the designers managed to make the appearance of the car even more presentable and expensive, although the car did not belong to the "budget employees" before.
The interior of the station wagon became morequality and thoughtful. But it is hardly possible to attribute it to the revolutionary. Interior updates consist of a new instrument panel, driver's and passenger seats, which can be equipped with a ventilation system and even a massager, if desired. Also, the changes are visible in the door panels, the interior lighting and the new analog clock.
Here, the Volkswagen-universal model B7 underwentmuch more changes than its exterior and interior. In total, buyers are able to choose one of the nine engine manufacturers proposed by the manufacturer. It can be four gasoline units, as many diesel engines and one motor running on natural gas. So, let's take a quick look at all the settings. Gasoline units have capacities of 122, 160, 201 and 300 horsepower, and their working volume is 1.4, 1.8, 2.0 and 3.6 liters, respectively. Among the diesel units it is worth noting a 1.6-liter engine with a capacity of 105 horsepower and two two-liter engines with capacities of 140 and 170 "horses", respectively. And 170-strong "Volkswagen-Passat" -universal-diesel can get a "hundred" in only 8.6 seconds. The bioethanol engine with its working volume of 1.4 liters is capable of developing a capacity of 160 "horses". All engines are equipped with automatic and mechanical transmissions at six speeds. With the fuel consumption of the novelty is also good - for 100 kilometers of the track "Volkswagen" -universal consumes from 5.3 to 7.7 liters of fuel (depending on the engine chosen). And the most powerful engine is able to accelerate the car to 223 kilometers per hour. This is a worthy indicator for the new station wagon.

By the way, the Volkswagen-V3-universal also has about the same price, the technical characteristics of which have also recently been changed.
