I kinda like it but its pretty big imo. Big long car. I dont like the GT badge on the side behind the passenger door looks tacky.

I feel that this car is going to be close to 40K (sticker) for basically a v6 passat w/ GTI trimmings.

Don't forget the suspension too. It's pretty much like a GLI

Man...what's with VW making the front grills so much bigger? It's a lot worse on the 2018 Jetta. I hope they don't do that to the GTI...

http://www.vw.com/builder/tab/trim/model/passat/ The V6 starts at 30k. I know it won't have AWD but with trim etc thats still going to be a 3-4k premium. Throw in Taxes, fees etc and you get 40...

The SEL V6 is priced at like $34-35k....this will NOT be more than that, IMO

While the "GT" is coming, the specs haven't been FORMALLY announced by VW btw, so this is still speculation

the GT is not the same as those. Its almost like the those special eddition GLI my brother was looking at. Had the GLI, brakes etc but the interior was almot base model and priced like 3-5k less.
I cant remember what model it was but you cant compare a unreleased car price(that probably will not have trims and packages and it is the "GT" package.
