Used Volkswagen Passat at Coachella Valley Volkswagen for Palm Desert, CA

The Volkswagen Passat is a unique player in the midsize sedan segment. It's the only European member of the class, offering unseen styling and one of the roomiest interiors. The Passat is also one of the only vehicles in the midsize sedan segment to present a diesel engine option that provides remarkable fuel economy only matched by hybrid sedans. The Passat also extends a ride quality that's not met by others in the class; characteristics of the Passat's ride quality are refinement and composed handling.

Under the Passat's Hood

There is a wide range of engine and transmission options you may come across in the Volkswagen Passat. Many 2013 and 2014 model year Passats will come with a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. This engine outputs 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. This was the initial standard engine and was slowly phased out by a superb 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. These engines can both be paired with a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The newer 1.8-liter engine produces 170 horsepower as well but bumps up the torque to 184 pound-feet. A heftier 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine is an option as well, creating 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine is pair with a DSG six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Finally, there's a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine that offers fuel economy that's essentially unheard of in this class. It only generates 140 horsepower but makes up for that with 236 pound-feet of torque. For fuel economy, this engine receives 31 mpg city/43 mpg highway with its six-speed manual option or 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway with its DSG six-speed dual-clutch automatic.
