There’s no better way to prove intent than the readiness to put one’s money in the line, and that’s what Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia is doing in order to prove the Passat’s worth to you.
Confident that the Passat will exceed the expectations of most, Volkswagen is throwing a challenge to all Malaysians to take its latest D-segment flagship model out for a spin in the Passat Test Drive Challenge running from now to 30 September 2017.
Members of the public participating in the Test Drive Challenge have no obligation to buy the car, and will be given a Touch n Go card pre-loaded with RM100 each if the Passat does not end up exceeding their expectations. Participants will be required to respond to a questionnaire to gauge their feedback of the car.
Launched locally in 2016, the current-generation Passat B8 is powered by Volkswagen’s latest-generation TSI turbocharged direct injection engines with outputs from 180 to 220 PS.

More recently, Volkswagen have given the 1.8-litre TSI versions of the Passat added value with up to RM12,000 worth of features in the Passat Plus. In addition to the added equipment, the Passat Plus is even more affordable than the regular Passat, being priced at RM169,980 in Comfortline Plus spec.
