Volkswagen has offered up the lightest of refreshes on its Jetta for 2015, making subtle styling tweaks to the front, rear and interior while adding a few doses of new equipment. One of the biggest tweaks is the new, 2.0-liter TDI engine, which is now more efficient, returning 45 miles per gallon on the freeway (compared to 42 mpg on the 2014 model) while retaining the previous engine’s 236 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Volkswagen Passat R Line ✅ NEW 2020 VW PASSAT R LINE Hello volkswagen drivers, this is new 2020 passat r line . Redesigned with the U.S. market in mind, the 2020 Passat keeps the platform of the outgoing model (skipping the MQB platform that underpins the European Passat) but features a more premium look inside and out, coupled with a more aggressive grille and standard 17-inch wheels. Four-door coupes are the new sedans, so perhaps it’s no surprise that Wolfsburg is going in this direction, given the proliferation of this look among other German automakers. The “tornado” character line adds a further touch of style, conveying a more premium appearance along with slimmer LED headlights and taillights. On the inside the cabin has been reworked with a heavy emphasis on repeating horizontal lines, lending the dash a sleeker and more expensive look helped by chrome accents — we saw a preview of this look with the debut of the Atlas a couple of years ago. When it goes on sale later this year the 2020 model will be powered by a turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-liter engine, good for 174 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. This isn’t a new engine per se — it’s a carryover, just like the platform — and this powerplant will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The new Passat will be offered in four trim levels along with a launch-only Limited model when it goes on sale.
