I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Here is the 2020 Volkswagen Passat. It's tough to tell through the camo, but it looks as if the grill gets more Jetta-like.

Headlights are redesigned as well and will come with LED lights.

The same 2.0-liter turbo engine will be offered, knocking out 174 horsepower.

However, torque will get a bump from the current 184 pound-feet to a healthier 207.

A six-speed automatic transmission will get the power to the front wheels.

The 2020 Passat will have a fair number of optional extras, including rain-sensing wipers, lane-keeping assist, interior ambient lighting and adaptive cruise control.
