A few weeks ago, from LatestCarNews we informed you of the Volkswagen Passat 2021. As we mentioned at that time, the most relevant novelty is the introduction of TDI diesel engines with ´Twindosing´ technology -double AdBlue injection-, something that allows reducing nitrogen oxides. Also, depending on the version, there is a power gain that will serve to compete with rivals such as the Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Opel Insignia, Peugeot 508, or the Renault Talisman.

The diesel range of the Volkswagen Passat 2021 is structured in three versions of the 2.0 TDI; In the first place, we have the variant of 122 hp -250 Nm of maximum torque- linked to the DSG double-clutch automatic gearbox with seven relations.
