The new 2015 Volkswagen Passat is expected to get full LED headlights and taillights. It is likely to sport various driver assistance features, newly formulated steering wheel and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Initially, the all-new Passat will be offered in two forms- sedan and wagon; however, the company will later introduce the CC four-door coupe, a rugged Alltrack wagon and a CC shooting brake.
