Some cars impress the public by their sheer power and ability to allow maneuverability to the lucky driver who gets to handle them. The 2015 Volkswagen Passat happens to be one of them.
This vehicle is a gem and has the qualities that evince that fact. And its fuel economy is tops. The medium sedan which the entire family can travel in has been given a few makeovers since the previous year when it was gasoline-based.
Now though it is diesel-oriented. Among the technological additions may be included a camera and a stereo with many speakers that convert the interior into a music concert.
Then it also has satellite radio which is a boon and a blessing. The diesel model has a 2 liter engine and a 150 horsepower range. The mileage is 44 miles per gallon with manual transmission and slightly less with the automatic version.
The DSG gearbox is such that it allows easy shifts in speed levels. And it is quite a speedy Gonzales alright with its vroom vroom capacity to go from 0 to 60 within the span of a few seconds.
The grandiloquent design is the handiwork of a Hungarian-born man named X-Tomi. The car is indeed the fantasy and dream of so many. The very fact that today it is a reality speaks volumes about the ability of science to make magic happen.
Although no GTI has been built so far as far as the future is concerned no one can say whether such a possibility does not exist. Whatever the case may be, this is one car that has the full force of German engineering behind it.
And the results are obvious. The most compact, tough and comfy car west of Suez has been constructed out of scratch. Now that’s what we call a miracle in ordinary language!
