If a high-tech and sleek sedan appeals to you, then the 2017 VW Passat comes highly recommended.

Under the Passat's Hood

There are two engines available to power the 2017 VW Passat. The first engine is the 1.8-liter TSI turbocharged and direct-injection four-cylinder engine capable of producing 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The next option is the 3.6-liter VR6 which offers 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with the six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and comes with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on some trim levels. With this engine, the Passat takes on a new role as a sport sedan but still remains fuel efficient. Precise handling and a gentle ride are both facets of the Passat's driving experience. The four-link independent layout suspension supports the rear of the vehicle and features an anti-roll bar and telescopic dampers. Coil springs, an anti-roll bar, and damper struts with robust lower control arms all come together to form the front suspension. The Passat is the beneficiary of the electro-mechanical power steering which helps give it optimized steering in low- and high-speed situations.

Design of Volkswagen Passat

Volkswagen paid attention to every detail of the Passat's design making it comfortable, functional, and stylish. The seats are both durable and comfortable with cloth trim being standard at some levels and Perforated V-Tex leatherette at others. Moonrock Grey and Cornsilk Beige colored interiors also get contrast piping. The SEL Premium trim level enjoys Vienna leather seating surfaces. The cabin has plenty of space for its five passengers, and the trunk contains 15.9 cubic feet of storage space. The Passat has many standard features to make the ride more comfortable including cruise control, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights and full power accessories.

The 2017 Passat features tons of standard safety features. A rearview camera, traction and stability control, front and rear side curtain, and front side airbags, a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking, and antilock disc brakes all come standard on the Passat. Every Passat also features Volkswagen's Automatic Post-Collision braking system which helps to prevent further collisions by automatically applying the brakes when the airbags are triggered. Rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and a lane departure warning system are all available as optional features. There is also the option of VW's Car-Net telematics system which offers the driver additional features like roadside assistance, automatic crash notification, speed alerts, stolen vehicle location, and geo-fencing for parents who would like to set limits for the teenage drivers. Beyond the features, Volkswagen has made an impressive effort to make the physical structure of the Passat optimized for safety as well. Sheet metal has been added to the footwell, crash rail, and sills. High strength steel also helps to add durability.
