The B3 Passat was heavily facelifted in 1993 and although it was designated B4, it was not an all-new model. The facelift resulted in every external body panel being changed, except for the roof and glasshouse, with most obvious exterior change seeing the re-introduction of a grille to match the style of the other same-generation Volkswagen models of the era, such as the Mk3 Golf and Jetta. The interior was mildly updated and included safety equipment such as dual front airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners, although the basic dashboard design remain unchanged. The B4 sedan was replaced in late 1997 by the new B5 Passat.

  • Der VW Passat B4 (Typ 3A) ist ein Modell der Mittelklasse von Volkswagen. Er wurde im Herbst 1993 als Nachfolger des VW Passat B3 vorgestellt. Es handelt sich nicht um ein völlig neues Fahrzeug, sondern um eine umfassende Weiterentwicklung des Passat B3. Der Wagen wurde zwischen Oktober 1993 und Mai 1997 im VW-Werk Emden produziert. Im Oktober 1996 wurde die Limousine des B4 durch den Nachfolger VW Passat B5 abgelöst, der Variant folgte ein halbes Jahr später. (de)
  • The B3 Passat was heavily facelifted in 1993 and although it was designated B4, it was not an all-new model. The facelift resulted in every external body panel being changed, except for the roof and glasshouse, with most obvious exterior change seeing the re-introduction of a grille to match the style of the other same-generation Volkswagen models of the era, such as the Mk3 Golf and Jetta. The interior was mildly updated and included safety equipment such as dual front airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners, although the basic dashboard design remain unchanged. The B4 sedan was replaced in late 1997 by the new B5 Passat. The car was available with a Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engine - an inline four-cylinder 1.9 liter turbodiesel, generating 202 newton metres (149 lbf·ft) of torque at 1,900 rpm and 66 kilowatts (90 PS; 89 bhp) at 4000 rpm. It carried a U.S. EPA fuel efficiency rating for the sedan of 45 miles per US gallon (5.2 L/100 km; 54 mpg-imp) highway. Combined with a 70 litres (15.4 imp gal; 18.5 US gal) fuel tank, it had a 1300+ km (800+ mi) range on a single tank of fuel. The B4 TDI wagon saw less than 1,000 sales in the U.S. during its 1996 to 1997 lifespan. (en)
