    New Passat 206TSI R-Line

    Confirmed for Australia... Bringing me back to VW Watercooled after a number of years away from the forum (and the brand), including a period in Europe where I was fortunate enough to have a C63 AMG. My last VW was a MY10 Passat R36.

    I'm REALLY looking forward to the new 206TSI R-Line. More power, more torque, both available lower in the rev range, more fuel efficient and marginally fast. BRING IT ON! And that new instrumentation screen looks so sexy!

    Mine will be a white wagon (I have a Great Dane), fully optioned.

    I was considering the 132 TSI Comfortline fully optioned but that's changed now.

    Agreed! I stopped popping back to the forum after my 2011 GTI was about 6 months old. I'm back because we'll probably be getting a 206TSI wagon (one of the silver colours probably)... and I was hoping for some more information etc. I'm just reserving the final decision until I've driven it, as I was hoping to read some reviews online, but I'm struggling to find a good one.
    Now - MY17 Passat 206TSI Wagon - Tungsten Silver | Sunroof

    Previous - MY11.5 GTI 5Dr - Reflex Silver | DSG | ACC | Sat Nav | RVC | Bluetooth | MDI | 18" Detroits | Park Assist | Bi-Xenon's | Leather | Sunroof | R-Tails

    From the links/photos I've seen, it doesn't appear to look that much different to a regular Passat (which is a bit disappointing).

    Has anyone stumbled across any sales material that provides a more detailed overview of the kit/options?

    I would agree with that. In fact it looks like it's just the current 132 TSI Comfortline with R-Line pack, but packing the 2.0 engine.

    The 132 TSI Comfortline is a great car and has got enough power for normal use.So I doubt whether there will be enough buyers for the 206!

    Janko, I think you'll be surprised. Yes the 206tsi will likely be niche like R36 but that'll make it more of a desirable option for those able or wanting to extend to it above a 132tsi. For the numbers coming it'll sell well I'm sure.

    When you say 'for the numbers coming' - is there a limited run?

    There were lot of differences between Passat and R36.With Passat having stepped up with B8 the differences have narrowed down a lot.That is why I am wondering if it will hit the required numbers.

    Has anyone done the pros and cons of the 206tsi against a top spec Tiguan 162tsi?

    Pro - It's a car not an SUV. lol

    For me, that's where the comparison stops.
