My new Passat has just arrived from Factory. This is the 1.6 model. Due to expensive local taxes imposed on 1.8 and 2.0 models, the factory manufactures this variant 1595 cc engine specifically for my country (Cyprus) and some other countries with expensive local tax restrictions.

I guess this is the newest (2005 model) isn't it?.

Welcome to the club! :) It's great to have a member from Cyprus.
This is certainly a very new model. It looks like the European style blacked-out trim, instead of our US chrome trim.
I think VW offers similar engines in some other countries, including China I believe.
I also see some of the new model Golfs in the background, which we don't have here in the US yet.
Congratulations and enjoy.
