Volkswagen recently announced the launch of the Passat Sport, a few days prior to the 2014 NAIAS in Detroit. The production version of the Passat Performance concept is to be launched, featuring an aero kit and other special features.

The looks not much experimented on; the Passat Sport looks pretty similar to the regular Passats. Alongside GT and Limited, the Sport is undoubtedly the most prolific of automotive trims. It can be distinguished from the others by fog lights, a rear spoiler and 19 inch Luxor style alloy wheels. Although not very sporty in design, the sedan is powered by the new 1.8 litre EA888 Gen 3 turbocharged and direct injection four cylinder engine offering 170 hp and 184 lb-feet of torque. This brings it into shapr competition with performance of mid size segment leaders such as the Honda Accord and Ford Fusion. According to Car and Driver, ‘In our tests, the Passat Sport 1.8T automatic hit 60 mph in 7.5 seconds., besting the 8.3 second performance of the 178 hp Ford Fusion 1.6 EcoBoost and the 7.7 second time of the 185 hp Honda Accord EX 2.4L CVT. The small diameter turbo spools quickly and provides good throttle response and around town flexibility are excellent’. Volkswagen offers a choice between a five speed manual and a six speed automatic transmission.

The Passat Sport fares well on the features of available comfort, convenience, appearance features. The interiors are well and comfortably done with sports seats, faux carbon fibre trim and alloy pedals, leather wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, stainless steel plates and special floor mats. On the exterior colour front , one can choose between candy white, Tungsten silver and Urano Grey. The Passat Sport is to go on sale early 2014 and pricing starts at $27, 295(including a $820 destination and handling charge).
