Volkswagen has detailed the Passat Performance Concept, which will make its official debut at the Detroit Motor Show, next week.

The saloon is powered by the well-known 1.8 liter TSI four-cylinder petrol – 253HP (186 kW). The modified engine will replace the 2.5-liter inline-5 in United States. The smaller engine has more power and torque and lot lower fuel consumption. The 1.8 liter TSI is coupled to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The Passat Performance Concept comes with slight exterior modifications – a set of 19" alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension, a revised front bumper, bi-xenon headlights with LEDs and LED rear lights. At the rear, there are dual exhaust pipes

The interior boasts two-tone leather upholstery and a number of carbon fiber elements.
