About Volkswagen Passat B6

The Volkswagen B6 Passat 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.
