(Canadian International AutoShow, February 2018) - The Volkswagen Passat GT Concept combines fresh styling updates with increased performance and appearance details similar to those of the Golf GTI.

On the performance front, the Passat GT gets a big performance boost from thanks to the presence of a 3.6-litre turbocharged VR6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed double-clutch transmission. A lowered suspension (15.24 mm), along with 19-inch Tornado wheels gives the Passat GT a more aggressive and planted stance on the road, while painted red brake calipers, a black honeycomb grille insert and red accent lines are reminiscent of the GTI.
