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 150 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 2015
The Volkswagen Passat benefits from an upgraded TDI engine with more power and improved fuel-consumption for 2015. A new 1.8T Limited Edition model slots in above the 1.8T S with a six-speed automatic, keyless access with push-button start, V-Tex leatherette seat-upholstery, heated front seats, touchscreen radio, a rear-view camera and 17-in. alloy wheels. A new Technology Package adds more equipment on 1.8T S models.
The 2015 Volkswagen Passat Sedan is available in 9 trim levels.
