Here's another teaser of the eight generation VW Passat. It will be offered in many markets around the globe and here it is getting draped in a silky robe. There's not much to reveal other than the outline of its available all-LED headlights.

VW's new mid-size model will include both sedan and estate variants based on the group's Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) platform that helps reduce weight by as much as 85kg (187 pounds) over the current Passat.
