VW Passat gets 1.8 TSI motor

12th May 2010 7:00 am

We drove the new Passat 1.8 TSI. Check out our first drive report.

Volkswagen’s premium saloon Passat now gets a petrol heart for the first time since its launch. VW has plonked the turbocharged direct injection 1.8-litre petrol engine under the hood of the Passat.

This is the same engine that currently powers the Skoda Laura and Superb. This direct injection powerplant has a massive 25.5kgm of torque from a low 1500rpm which should give the Passat a very strong performance, with a 0-100kph time of under nine seconds.

Priced at Rs 22.21 lakh (on-road, Mumbai), the Passat TSI will take on the competition to the Honda Accord and the Skoda Superb.
