New Volkswagen Passat 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Mazda 6 rival now cost more to buy

Six months after its launch, the facelifted Passat has had its pricing adjusted.

Volkswagen Australia has increased the pricing of the recently facelifted Passat mid-size car.

Introduced in January, the new Passat has so far been exclusively offered in entry-level form, with the 140TSI Business grade available in sedan and wagon body-styles.

And now both variants have copped $600 price rises, jumping to $46,590 and $48,590 plus on-road costs respectively.

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Volkswagen Australia spokesperson said no changes have been made to the Mazda6 rival’s standard specification, with its higher pricing introduced due to exchange-rate and inflationary pressures.

For reference, the front-wheel-drive 140TSI Business versions are powered by a 140kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

As reported, Volkswagen Australia is planning to introduce additional grades of the facelifted Passat in the first quarter of next year, including a new mid-range 162TSI and the returning 206TSI flagship.
