  • Der VW Passat B6 (Typ 3C) wurde von Februar 2005 bis Juli 2010 sowohl im Werk Emden als auch im Volkswagenwerk Zwickau als Nachfolger des Modells B5 gefertigt. Ein weiterer Hersteller ist FAW-Volkswagen, welcher das Modell ab November 2007 in seinem Hauptwerk Changchun unter dem Namen VW Magotan in der Stufenheckversion und ab Juni 2010 dann auch als VW Variant in der Kombiausführung herstellte. Die chinesische Produktion wurde im Juni 2011 eingestellt, um die Herstellung des neu entwickelten Passat NMS zu ermöglichen. (de)
  • The Volkswagen Passat (B6) is an automobile which was produced by German manufacturer Volkswagen from 2005 to 2010 with production of the car continuing in facelifted form as the Volkswagen Passat (B7) from 2010 to 2015. The B6 and B7 are the six and seventh models respectively to bear the Volkswagen Passat name. The B6 was debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005, and launched in Europe in the summer of 2005. The B6 Passat no longer shared its platform with Audi's equivalent model (the Audi A4), and is instead based on a long-wheelbase version of the platform used by the fifth-generation Golf (called Rabbit in the United States & Canada), and its sedan equivalent, the fifth-generation Volkswagen Jetta, and therefore seeing a return to a transverse engine compared to the longitundinal layout of its predecessor. Confusingly, although this model is referred to as the "B6" (or "Typ 3C") Passat, it has minimal commonality with the "B6" (Typ 8E) Audi A4, which was based on its own unique platform when it was launched in 2001. On the four-wheel drive version, called 4motion, the transverse-engine platform dictated a switch from the Torsen centre differential of the B5, to the Haldex Traction multi-plate clutch. The change to the Haldex system also changes the handling closer to a front-wheel drive car, with better fuel economy claimed. Compared to the Torsen, the Haldex can direct torque more unequally to the front wheels (from 100:0 to 50:50 front-to-rear bias), thus providing a wider bias range than the 75:25 to 25:75 of the B5 Passat. Haldex is a reactive-type system, behaving as a front-wheel-drive vehicle until slippage is detected, at which point up to a maximum of 50% of the torque can be transmitted to the rear axle. See the Audi-related quattro (four wheel drive system) article for more information. Fuel Stratified Injection is used in nearly every petrol engined version of the Passat, ranging from 1.6 to 3.6 litres (the 1.6 litre DOHC can reach 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 11.5 seconds, and 200 km/h (124.3 mph) for manual transmission versions), but the multi-valve 2.0 litre Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) I4 diesel is the most sought after version in Europe (available in both 140 PS (103 kW; 138 hp) and 170 PS (125 kW; 168 hp) variants). In the U.S. market, a 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) 2.0 litre turbocharged I4 is the base engine, or a 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp) 3.6 litre VR6 engine as the upgrade, with six-speed manual (only available on the base 2.0 T model) and automatic transmissions. As of the 2009 model year, the VR6 engine and 4motion option were no longer available in the US on the Passat sedan and wagon, but are available on the Passat CC. In China, the PQ46 Passat was released by FAW-Volkswagen (FAW-VWVolkswagen Group China subsidiary FAW-Volkswagen (FAW-VW) as the Magotan, after Volkswagen's other joint venture in China, Shanghai Volkswagen Automotive(SVW) had decided to continue using the B5 platform for the Passat and the Passat Lingyu (long-wheelbase Passat). Since August 2010 the wagon version of Passat B6 will be offered in China, which is a fully imported model. But this car is simply called Volkswagen Variant in China, in order not to refer the name "Passat" or "Magotan". (en)
