Volkswagen will unveil its 2020 Passat at the Detroit auto show in January as a face-lifted midsize sedan that hasn't had a significant update since 2011, according to media reports.

Volkswagen released a sketch of the vehicle, which will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four that makes 174 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission will deliver power to a front-wheel drivetrain. The company is boosting torque of its base engine and dropping its optional 3.6-liter V-6.

The sportier R-Line model adds 19-inch wheels will join the lineup. All models will receive LED headlights and an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reports CNET.
