I didn’t know there was a Passat GT until yesterday when I saw some reviews pop-up.

“Inside, there’s a bevy of sport-flavored upgrades, from carbon fiber optic décor and a black headliner to two-tone black/gray seats with contrast stitching. Under the hood there’s a 3.6-liter VR6 engine—tuned to 280 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 rpm with regular fuel. Paddle shifters control a six-speed DSG Tiptronic® automatic transmission.” 

However, in some related news, looks like the next GLI will get the GTi’s good bits. The standard 2019 Jetta has been getting good reviews but will anyone take the GLI over the GTI?
