Even the VW Passat has a 3.6 l engine now

Not that I would buy one, but...

New VW Passat: 3.6 litres, 0-60 in 5.9
Even the Honda accord goes 0-60 in 6.1 sec now.

Where is the 335i?

Estimated at 3.4s, I hear it's going to be really light and really quick.

the Passat has to make that kinda power to make up for the fact that it's:

a) heinous
b) overpriced
c) a bad idea in it's newest incarnation
d) failing at sales (from what I've heard, but I could be wrong)


displacement does not solve all problems

Who cares if it has a 3.6 liter engine? I think it's ugly as sin - especially the new ones that just came out. EWWW

Nope, AWD. Does VW call their AWD "4motion" also in US? I think that name is weird.
