We recently learned that the GT version of the VW Passat will get the axe in 2019, along with a couple of other trims of the sedan model. In the case of the GT, it had only been introduced this year! Another victim of the SUV gold rush...
It's a shame, because the GT version managed to make a fairly non-descript sedan into a relatively dynamic, fun-to-drive car. That obviously was not enough, as the GT becomes yet another sedan to fall by the wayside.
Here's our photo gallery of a Volkswagen we barely even got to know!
There will of course continue to be Passats on the VW roster. But in 2019 there will be only two to choose from: the Wolfsburg edition and the SE R-Line. Gone are the the S, the SEL... and the GT.
