These are the first spy shots of the new generation Volkswagen Passat sedan which is set to receive a major face lift and a few hand-me-downs from the Passat CC.
The new Volkswagen Passat will be the next model in line to receive the new VW family face which already features on the new Golf, Touareg and recently launched Polo.
While disguised beneath heavy camouflage, the trademark styling of the next generation Volkswagens means very little is left to the imagination, employing the same sharp head light design and wider, blacked-out grille as its newest stable mates.
We also expect LED running lights in the new head lamps, with the restyled tail lamps also featuring LED technology.
The updated interior is expected to be borrowed from the Passat CC with better quality material and more chrome.
As has become the norm for manufacturers in the pursuit of economy, the new Passat is expected to shed a few kilos through the use of lighter materials.
