Manufactured through the joint collaboration of Volkswagen and the Chinese from FAW, the new Passat Lingyu has been unveiled at Shanghai’s Auto 2009, together with new VW Golf. While some could say it’s just a simple Passat revision, the new Lingyu has an extended wheel base of 9.12 centimeters, offers more rear legroom and reduces fuel usage by at least 10%. With 2.8 liter and 2.0 liter V6 engines unchanged but with an upgraded 1.8-liter that sports 163 hp (up from 150hp), the new Passat Lingyu gives you a choice between a five-speed manual and automatic transmission. Not my favorite, what about you?
