Series production begins of the sixth generation Passat which premieres at the International Motor Show in Geneva 2005. The vehicles' athletic silhouette represents the largest design leap since the creation of the series. The front end with its chrome shield radiator and eye-like headlights is typical of the Volkswagen brand's contemporary look.
