In addition to the world exclusive first post anywhere about the new VW Passat: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/...nms-will-still-2012-vw-passat-tdi-specs-5138/
, I've put some more introductory information on the new 2012 VW Passat TDI into a new buying guide. You can view the article here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/b7/2012-vw-passat-tdi-forum-buying-guide.htm
At this point there's not too much on the features but as more news is released, the article will be fleshed out. I did put a comparison to one of the Passat's target cars, the Camry....but since the guide is for TDI, the comparison is to the Camry hybrid. The TDI blows the hybrid out of the water for highway mpg. VW hasn't released city mpg rating for the Passat TDI but I suspect it will be close.
Some things we do know about the car are features like the fender-panasonic audio system, homelink, and that it uses Adblue. You must still use 507.00 engine oil.
Some things we don't know as of this writing are: will there be a VW Passat TDI station wagon for 2012? Or maybe 2013? As more information comes out the article will be edited.
