The Volkswagen Passat is a mid-size sedan that benefits from a roomy interior and a broad choice of engines. The Passat comes well-equipped and well-built, with an upmarket interior and a composed ride. Power comes from a choice of three engines driving the front wheels: a 1.8-liter inline-4 turbo with 170 hp, a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 hp and a frugal 2.0-liter 4-cylinder TDI with 140 hp. Available transmissions include 5- and 6-speed manuals, as well as 6-speed automatic and dual-clutch transmissions, depending on the engine choice.
Changes for 2014
For 2014, the former entry 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine is replaced by an equally strong 1.8-liter turbo 4-cylinder unit that delivers better fuel economy. In addition, a Sport trim joins the Passat lineup, while SE and higher trims receive a standard rear-view camera. VW Car-Net connected services is optional on Wolfsburg, SE, and SEL Premium models.
The 2014 Volkswagen Passat Sedan is available in 9 trim levels.
