2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack Design
As you can see from the photos, the wagon looks all modern and elegant, and has that squared-off look that suits it well.

It has a different grille style and new bumpers, as well as the new headlights, aimed at enhancing its visual distinction. The hood and roof with silver roof rails are basically the same. The 2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack is lifted up by one inch from the ground compared to its stock counterpart, in a bid to enhance ground clearance, and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels by default, but customers will be able to choose between a set of 18- or 19-inch wheels. In the back there is a pair of the cool-looking trapezoidal exhaust tips integrated into the bumper and a new set of taillights.
The interior of the 2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack is expected to have more enhanced features for maximum comfort and space for more passengers and luggage. There is more room for the rear passengers legs, hands and elbows. The wagon will farther be enhanced with an air conditioning and interior air filtration fan. Its rugged form will be boosted with a thick brushed aluminum and carbon spray. Its standard and optional features are likely to include: parking sensors, power-adjustable seat for a driver, panoramic sunroof. Other features worth mentioning are a remote car-lock keys, multilevel heating driver seat, external temperature level display, low fuel level warning, dual illuminating vanity mirrors, trip computer, compass, 12V cargo area power outlets, smartphone connectors, and Bluetooth wireless data link.
