I wonder if the Passat is getting the "200" treatment instead of a replacement.
That sums it up well. Nothing wrong as such, just very boring and somehow a mix of other best selling cars (I see Ford, i see Hyundai, but I see very little "German"). Whilst now one who "receives" one as company/rental car will complain, itr will be very easy to overlook IMO in general...
The interior reminds me of the new T-Roc, that feels very plasticky in the flesh, and not of those high grade plastics. And the placement of the fake stitching is more or less invisible, just there so someone could tell his boss "now we have that too" (and probably we have the longest stitching in the class). VW doesn#t seem to be too confident about the interior too, given how all but one pree pics are full with light effects or dark just to show of (optional) LEDs and screens....
At least the warranty is up there with the industry standard now (well, for the US, us European customers don't need any warranty to speak about on super reliable German cars)
