The next trim is the R-Line and it comes with heated side mirrors, heated front seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, a 6.3-inch touchscreen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles, and a satellite radio.

How safe is the Passat?

The 2018 Passat might just be one of the safest vehicles you could buy. The Passat comes with an Intelligent Crash Response System. This system begins with the automatic post-collision braking system that brings the Passat to a complete stop after a collision. The system then shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on hazard lights for certain types of collisions. This will not only keep you safe if left unconscious but will give others on the road warning and the emergency crew easy access to help you and your passengers. On top of this system, the Passat also comes with a long list of safety features to help prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Some of these features include lane departure warning, collision mitigation with automatic braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear traffic alert, and autonomous emergency braking.
