Volkswagen Malaysia launched the facelifted B8 Passat, featuring a redesigned front and rear end, an updated powertrain, an updated infotainment system, as well as new convenience and safety features.
Locally-assembled at the DRB-Hicom plant in Pekan, Pahang, the new Passat will only be offered in one variant – the Passat 2.0 TSI Elegance. Now, however, there will only be one powertrain option - an updated version of the current 2.0-litre TSI engine that is paired with a new 7-speed wet dual-clutch automatic gearbox, kicking out 190 PS and 320 Nm, which is 30 PS and 30 Nm lesser than the outgoing Passat 2.0 TSI Highline.
Where safety is concerned, new features include Side Assist with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, as well as the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, which complement other features like the Blind Spot Monitoring System, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Brake Assist (BA), Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS), Hill-hold Control, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, and the Proactive Passenger Protection System.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8 TSI (B8) – An Unassuming Sleeper
The Americans call it sleeper cars. The Brits call it Q cars, in reference to heavily armed battle ships disguised as merchant ships used to fight the Germans during World War 2. Whichever term you choose to use, sleeper cars/Q cars follow the philosophy of “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”View full review
