V10 was capable of generating 309bhp along with a 553 Lb-Ft of torque while the V12 was capable of generating 493bhp with 738 Lb-Ft of torque. This power is more than enough to pull a jumbo jet, however, it requires more cylinders and displacement to get there.

The new 2.0 Litre TDI engine is very impressive and it will likely to be used in EU version of Passat. It is a twin turbo 2.0 Litre diesel engine which has four pots to kick out 268bhp. It is the highest power rating for any four cylinder diesel engine available in the market.
