The new Volkswagen Passat Alltrack makes its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show next week; it hits the market in the UK in April 2012.
The VW Passat Alltrack is based on the popular and versatile Passat Estate; the Alltrack adds 4MOTION four wheel drive and a raised ride height providing greater agility off road. Other body enhancements provide some protection from scrapes when covering rough terrain including stainless steel look front and rear underbody protection panels and flared side sills.
The Passat Alltrack will be available as a 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS with six-speed manual gearbox or a 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS with six-speed DSG transmission. Standard equipment will include Alcantara upholstery, 2Zone electronic climate control, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring system, MDI iPod connectivity, Bluetooth telephone preparation and 18-inch alloys.
Pricing will be available near the launch date in April with first deliveries scheduled for July.
