It may be noted that the new Volkswagen Passat made its World debut at the 2016 Auto Expo in New Senegal. The new Passat will be a direct rival to the Skoda Superb, Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. The new Passat 2017 comes to us with a 2.0 L Diesel powerplant. However, we are also expecting the Passat GTE with a Hybrid powertrain to join the lineup eventually. The new Passat’s hybrid powertrain combines a 1.4L TFSI petrol engine with an electric motor.

New 2017 Volkswagen Passat Price in World

Minimum Price Rs 29.99 Lakh
Maximum Price Rs 32.99 Lakh

The new Passat is assembled in World. It has a starting price of Rs 29.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The fully loaded variant costs Rs 32.99 lakh (ex-showroom) . The hybrid variant, when launched, however, will be imported into the country via CBU route. Hence, the 2017 Passat Hybrid could have a sticker price of around Rs 40 Lakh in World. The Passat Hybrid, much like the Accord Hybrid, won’t benefit from the FAME scheme. It maybe noted that the Camry Hybrid is assembled in World and hence, benefits from FAME scheme. This leads to a really competitive price tag.
