Jump Behind the Wheel of a Volkswagen Passat

August 12th, 2021 by

The Volkswagen brand is commonly celebrated as the brand for drivers who love to have fun, explore and live life to the fullest without unnecessary frills. The new Volkswagen Passat brings these images of joy to a mature, family-friendly sedan that offers a controlled ride, reliable handling, and a vast interior perfect for families or drivers who need space. The Volkswagen Passat is ideal for people who want German-style reliability with an American take on space and comfort for the family.

Space and Comfort

Some of the Volkswagen Passat stand-out features are the clean lines, handsome interior features, and incredible amount of space that comfortably seats five adult passengers. Some refer to the interior as “utilitarian.” However, the unassuming design will invite you to ride in one of the most spacious and comfortable sedans in the line-up. Cargo space in the Passat is abundant. With the seats folded down, you can expect to fit 16 carry-on-sized boxes in the trunk. The expansive rear seats do take up some cargo room, but you will have more than enough room in the cargo space even with the seats up.

Power and Performance

The Volkswagen Passat has a single powertrain option: a 147-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed transmission. The automatic is described as smooth, allowing the sedan to move with ease throughout all types of driving contexts. Drivers experience a luxurious ride with predictable handling. Driving is comfortable and capable – which explains why it is such as a beloved car. The fuel economy is about 24-mpg in the city and 36-mpg on the highway, which is competitive with other vehicles in its class.

The Bells and Whistles of Entertainment

All models of the Volkswagen Passat include a 6.3-inch touchscreen with a three-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto with several USB ports. Top models also include navigation, a larger 8.0-inch display, a premium sound system, and a six-month subscription for the Volkswagen Car-Net services. This service allows drivers to locate the vehicle, call for roadside assistance and even lock or unlock the doors remotely from a smartphone.
