2011 VW Passat facelift new picture leak


This new alleged photo of the 2011 Volkswagen Passat has surfaced on the website of Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet. The paper has sourced the photo directly to VW, handed to the paper by a distributor in Norway.

The facelift shows new headlights that do away with the bulged design on the current Passat. The lenses look to be shaped slightly different than those seen in a previous leaked "photo" obtained by Autobild (see below).

What is the same is the new, flat horizontal grille and redesigned fog lights. The new photo also looks to show a remodeled bumper, and completely restyled sidesills and side panels. Interior changes are expected to include a different instrument cluster, the use of upgraded materials and a new multifunction steering wheel.

We should find out what the final look of the 2011 VW Passat will look like in the run up to the Paris Motor Show media days, beginning Sept. 30. The car is expected to appear as both a sedan and station wagon, with both hitting markets in Europe possibly by November.
