sgCarMart – One will never expect the day to come when we'll call the Volkswagen Passat a niche product and, yet, stating that about the eighth generation Passat isn't too far off.
Volkswagen's sedan has become the definition of the family sedan segment, but with this new model codenamed B8, it somehow moves into uncharted territory.
The new Passat now plays in an area slotted in between the mainstream and the premium areas of the segment, therefore appeasing a larger demographic.
What this means is that the Passat is moving further away from the likes of the Ford Mondeo, the Opel Insignia and the Peugeot 508, getting closer to offerings such as the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. That is an important step in the vehicle's life, but can such a scheme actually work out?
