The wagon rear end actually fixes the sedan's proportion problems, and the rear lights actually work on the new rear.

Gorgeous... even better than the Audi A6 Avant. I assume the rear lights will be slightly different (red lenses rather than clear) for the North American model, a la new Jetta?

it looks nice, better than the sedan. mainly i think this is because the wagon doesn't have the slightly odd, narrow rear end, so the proportions look better. good job VW, i hope it won't be priced to high <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

35k???? No way. 20k yeah but that's abit too much. WOW quite big. A Jetta wagon??? I wouldn't go saying its gorgeous but sexy would do. The A6 Avant is OK. Just imagine they were rivals. This will defantly be used for work and family stuff with its huge boot with the seats folded down

I was talking about the prices in the US, it'd probably be cheaper where you are (UK).<p>This is my justification, the new jetta here is 18-28k, the new passat is somewhere between 24-32K, so the wagon would be priced 26-35K, with options and other comparable equipment added for the loaded version<p>Talking about the jetta, with the new release, where is the TDI to go with the new jetta, where is the wagon to go with the new release, perhaps that's why sales of jetta has not been up to par...

WOW. Its gonna be that expensive. I thought you ment that it will be 32k in the US and UK. Thats really expensive for a wagon that has loads of space............ I would rather buy a Skoda Octavia 4X4. Cheaper and alittle smaller but who cares.

It kinda reminds me of the Honda Accord estate, but it's probably just the horizontal lights at the back. I was hoping for something different, after all the reports saying that this would have a rounder rear, completely different from the VW style... i guess this is round for VW. <p>And according to the rumour mill, the new Golf/Jetta wagon should arrive in 07 or 08, because apparently the people at VW thought that with the Touran and the Golf Plus a wagon wouldn't be needed, and then they changed their minds.<br>

I really like how that have incoropated the sedan tail lights into the wagon/estate version. I am a big fan of the sedan, and this version backs that up for me! Althought the back is slightly bulky and bulby whereas the rest of the car is sharper...still a very nice car though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0">

<IMG SRC="http://www.auto-central.org/cutenews/data/upimages/passat1.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><i><b>The new model shares its front design with the saloon, which means it has the same imposing V shaped chrome grille, but from the B-pillar back the body is very different. In profile, the car has a more dynamic design than before, with a window line that rises towards the D-pillar. The angle of the tailgate is also less vertical, while fast-acting LED bulbs are used for the rear lights. <p>However, the more streamlined appearance has not been achieved at the expense of luggage capacity. Maximum volume in the cargo area is 1,731 litres, compared with the 1,600 litres of its predecessor. The newcomer is 1.9 cm taller than before, at 1.52 m, 9.2 cm longer at 4.77 m and 7.4 cm wider at 1.82 m. <p>Adding to the practical character of the new Passat Estate is optional self-levelling hydropneumatic rear suspension, while a rail system in the boot floor allows more flexible securing of heavy items.<p>Like its saloon counterpart, the new Passat Estate features four-link rear suspension and transversely-mounted engines. Many technical highlights will be available, including a Bluetooth telephone unit and a benchmark 600W RMS Dynaudio sound system, plus, two firsts in this class: a standard-fit electronic handbrake, and a 2Zone Climatronic system.<p>A wide range of power units will be available at the models UK launch: 1.6-litre FSI 115 PS; 2.0-litre FSI 150 PS; 2.0-litre T-FSI 200 PS; and 3.2-litre FSI V6 250 PS petrol engines with homogenous direct injection, plus 1.9-litre TDI 105 PS and 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS diesels with high pressure Pumpe Dse unit injection. A 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS will follow later.<p>Volkswagens revolutionary DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) will be available on TDI models, with six-speed tiptronic automatic transmission available on 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre FSI engines. <p>More than 4.3 million Passat Estates have been produced over five generations, and the latest model is set to continue this success. UK prices and specification details of the new model will be released closer to the new models launch date.</i></b><p>source: auto-central.org

Prettiest Passat Variant ive seen..with H&R suspension mods<p><IMG SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/tuners/7050816.001/7050816.001.1M.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><i>Just in time for the official presentation of the new VW Passat Variant, H&R can already offer a complete range of suspension modifications.<p>As a long time partner of VW Motorsport, like in the VW Beetle Cup, VW Lupo Cup and VW Polo Cup as well as being the official supplier for the first Golf R32 series, H&R now took their time with the new VW Passat Variant.<p>The lifestyle stationwagon in his latest generation unites sportivity and exclusivity with its new design.<p>The sport spring set made of high tension steel lowers the car about 40mm and so increases the handling. The high strength and light aluminum TRAK+ wheel spacers which are hard anodized for corrosion protection allow a widening of 10 up to 60mm for the car from Wolfsburg.These are combineable with original as well as with nearly any aftermarked wheel/tyre combination.<p>A Cup Kit Sport Suspension is in development.<p>To complete the application range for the new Passat stationwagon H&R offers a height adjustable coil over which can be adjusted between 30 and 60mm on both axles.<p>All H&R suspension components are developed and produced by ISO 9001 and are TV approved. </i><p>Source: <A HREF="http://www.worldcarfans.com/tuners.cfm/tunerid/7050816.001" TARGET="_blank">WorldCarFans</A>
