With the approach of the opening of the 2024 auto show in April, many new cars that will make their debut at this auto show have begun to expose more information. As one of the key models of this year, the new generation will be officially released at the 2024 Beijing Auto Show. The new car was declared before listing in January this year. Recently, this new car has a set of latest prototype cars exposed without false spy photos. Through this set of spy photos, we can also get a glimpse of the whole new generation of Magotan. The following will bring a detailed forward-looking interpretation.

In terms of appearance, the new generation FAW-Volkswagen Magotan will still be built based on the new generation Volkswagen Passat B9 of European regulations. However, because the new generation Volkswagen Passat B9 only launched a travel version in the European market. Therefore, as a new generation of sedan, Magotan will be localized by FAW-Volkswagen in appearance design to meet the consumer demand in China market.

Judging from the previous application drawings and the latest exposure photos of the trial car, the new generation of Magotan adopts the exclusive design language of FAW-Volkswagen brand. The new car’s LED headlights are connected with the middle net, and the front face is visually cut through a belt that runs through the whole middle net and incorporates a luminous LOGO. This makes the visual focus of the front of the new generation of Magotan move down, which looks very sharp and atmospheric, thus highlighting the sense of sports and luxury. On the side of the car body, a straight waistline traverses from the front of the car to the rear of the car, creating an elegant sense of high class. In the rear part, the same penetrating LED taillight with luminous LOGO not only echoes the front design, but also enhances the recognition and fashion sense of the rear. Generally speaking, the appearance design of the new generation of Magotan is in line with the aesthetics of mid-level cars in China market in the new era. While retaining the traditional solemn and atmospheric style of Magotan, the new car keeps pace with the times to bring trendy and sporty design elements to reflect the sense of fashion.

In the interior part, judging from the photos of the new generation of Magotan prototype car, the new car adopts a similar intelligent cockpit design, and the center console will shift towards the driver’s seat, thus creating an environment-friendly cockpit atmosphere. At the same time, the new car is also equipped with a 10.25-inch full LCD instrument screen+a 15-inch floating central control screen+a passenger entertainment screen, thus becoming the first Volkswagen model equipped with three screens.

In other details, the new generation of Magotan will adopt electronic shift design and return to using physical buttons. In the central control area, the air conditioning control panel of the new car is still touch-controlled, and equipped with the wireless charging function of the front mobile phone. These designs and configurations are the same as those of the new Passat B9 of European regulations. In the car part, the new car will be built on the basis of the ID. OS 2.0 car intelligent system carried by ID.7Vizzion. It also supports mainstream functions such as AI intelligent voice, Apple Carplay, Baidu Carlife mobile phone interconnection function, car KTV, third-party APP ecology, car networking and OTA upgrade. In addition, the new car is equipped with interior atmosphere lights, digital keys and other configurations, and the AR-HUD head-up display system can be selected.

In terms of dimensions, the body circumference of the new generation Magotan, which is still based on audi ag MQB EVO platform, is 4990/1854/1487mm and the wheelbase is 2871mm. Compared with the previous generation, the wheelbase of the new generation Magotan remains unchanged, and the length, width and height of the car have all increased.

In the power part, the new generation of Magotan 330TSI models will be equipped with EA888 series 2.0T low-power engine; The 380TSI model continues to be equipped with the EA888 evo series 2.0T high-power engine, with a maximum power output of 162kW, matching the 7-speed DSG wet powershift. In addition, if the new car continues to launch the 280TSI model, it is expected to be equipped with the latest 1.5TSI evo engine.

Comments:Although new energy vehicles are gaining momentum in China auto market at present, fuel cars are still the absolute protagonists in the relatively traditional and conservative mid-size car market. According to the data, among the top ten models in China’s mid-size car market in 2023, GAC, SAIC Volkswagen, FAW-Volkswagen Magotan and GAC Honda Accord ranked in the top four, still occupying the dominant position in sales. Among them, the cumulative sales volume of FAW-Volkswagen Magotan in 2023 was 189,400 units, reaching the sales level of only 16,000 units per month, which is really good. In 2024, with the launch of a new generation of vehicles, the product strength of FAW-Volkswagen Magotan will be fully evolved from the outside to the inside, which will undoubtedly boost its sales in by going up one flight of stairs.
