Volkswagen matches 1.4 TFSI engine to DSG for the Passat for 37mpg

A 1.4-liter engine in such a large sedan? The downsized yet powerful 1.4 TFSI engine can now be ordered for the Volkswagen Passat with the new 7-speed DSG dual-clutch gearchange (a combination announced in the Seat Bocanegra concept recently as well). With these options, the car manages to get around with 6.4 l/100 km (6.5 in the station wagon version, which comes to about 37 mpg U.S.) and yet still reaches 200 km/h (115 mph). This Passat can also be ordered with the DCC adaptative chassis for a more sporty experience, although it costs extra. Prices start at €26,600 for Germany.
