The German born car giant Volkswagen debuted the new Passat BlueMotion concept at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. The newest Passat is a mix between a midsized family car and a 1.4-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine. The best perk of the Passat BlueMotion is that it’s a family-sized car but manages to still get 42 miles per gallon of gas on the highway!

However, the car has a 42 mpg efficiency, which is below U.S. regulations, that mandates automakers’ to have an average efficiency of 54.5 mpg. Volkswagen is set to highly improve its efficiency rate before hitting the North American market. The German automaker combines technologies from Volkswagens’ all over the world to infuse such high mileage into a four-cylinder gasoline engine. The Passat BlueMotion concept is neatly packed into an economical yet stunning classic Passat car design.

Keep an eye out for this German beauty on the roads in 2015 -- that is if Volkswagen passes the North American auto standards.
