The facelifted Volkswagen Passat sedan has been spied undergoing testing in the European Alps.
Up front, the headlamp internals have been reworked, with the LED driving lights now forming a brow above the main- and high-beam units. The grille, at least on this prototype, has an egg crate-style design not too dissimilar to that used on the pricier Arteon.
Volvo Cars has joined a growing list of manufacturers pushing away from motor shows, instead focusing on more closely-tailored events showcasing its new products.
The first casualty is the 2019 Geneva motor show, with no word on whether it'll appear at the 2018 Paris motor show this October.

A not-insignificant 58 per cent of respondents preferred the seven-seat Nissan over the MU-X, which is currently topping its class for sales.
