2001 Volkswagen Passat Overview

Volkswagen's Passat has been completely redesigned for 2002.Though the Passat gains bolder contours and new lights front and rear, this new model goes well beyond a styling revision.Volkswagen claims the only parts not changed are the roof and the doors.The chassis is 10 percent stiffer and the base engine has gained horsepower and torque, at low rpm where it's needed for quicker acceleration from intersections and robust response around town.Advances inside include new styling and new side curtain airbags.

Conflicting U.S.and European laws forced Volkswagen to launch its new Passat as a 2001 model, despite the old Passat having been sold since the fall of 2000 as a 2001 model also.To deal with this, Volkswagen's marketing people have dubbed the new Passat a '2001.5' model, a convention we'll follow to avoid confusion.Rush to your dealer and you may see the Passat being sold as a 2001.5; we view this as a 2002 model, however.We expect few changes between 2001.5 and 2002, except for the availability of an exciting new engine.
