2015 VW Passat 1.8L TSI
The new 2.0L I4 EA288 TDI Clean Diesel not only provides owners an additional 10 more hp but improves upon the Passat TDI?s EPA estimated highway fuel economy rating by 1 mpg to 44 mpg with the 6-sped MT. The highway rating for the 6-speed AT is also up by 2 mpg to 42 mpg. The manual transmission TDI model now has a range of up to 814 highway miles on one tank of Clean Diesel fuel. I actually meant to say 1,700 miles but that is just me. ;) Even the 1.8L TSI receives a 1 mpg highway boost thanks to low RRc all-season tires. EPA highway moves to 35 mpg with the 1.8T and the MT and 36 mpg with the AT.
