2016 Volkswagen Passat

The Volkswagen Passat has been nipped and tucked for 2016, a makeover that includes revised front, rear and interior styling, plus a long list of new technology features. The diesel-powered Passat TDI is on hiatus until further notice, but the lineup gains a sportier-looking new Passat R-Line variant.

For 2014, the VW Passat sees a number of improvements. A new 1.8-liter turbocharged engine will gradually replace the 2.5-liter unit as the base engine. VW’s Car-Net connected services will be offered on select trims, and a rearview camera is now standard on SE and higher trim levels.

After its thorough remake last year, aimed specifically at attracting more American consumers, Volkswagen's mid-size Passat sedan is little changed for 2013. Some tweaking inside makes the center console's cup holders and storage space more functional, and a rearview camera is now offered on the top SEL trim level.

About Volkswagen Passat

As the midsize- sedan segment’s only European entry, the 2016 Volkswagen Passat is among the most enjoyable drivers in the class. Even when not on the Autobahn, the Passat’s confidence-inspiring driving dynamics make for a satisfying and relaxing driving experience. But this Passat was designed specifically for North American tastes and preferences – it’s even built in Chattanooga, Tennessee – so it’s also roomy, practical and priced to compete with midsize-sedan staples like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. For 2016 the Passat receives a much-needed makeover to help it compete even better, and is among the first vehicles to offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

"I've owned the Passat SE with the lighting package for just about a month. My wife and I recently took our Passat on a two hour trip from CT to Newport, RI and experienced a smooth and comfortable ride while getting 38 miles to the gallon. The 1.8T turbo engine has provided better acceleration than expected, similar to my Saab turbo, and Lexus ES300 which we traded in. The entertainment system, including apply play gives you technology rivaling your high end European and Japanese imports. We also test drove the Volvo T5 prior to deciding to purchase the Passat. My black Passat looks sharp, the cabin is spacious and the ride is very enjoyable. I continue to look forward to my daily ride home from work in my Passat. This has been a very nice buy for me and my family, especially with all the VW incentives available. You will enjoy all this vehicle has to offer. Give it a try. You may be impressed with the German engineering behind this vehicle. I was and am now a first time VW owner."

Best graduation gift to myself!

"This is my second Passat and safe to say I am a proud VW owner. From my moving up from my 2013 Passat to the 2016, a lot has changed. I now have better driving capabilities and steering. LED head and tailings, apple carplay, and better interior finishes. The car handles a little better as well as fuel economy still blows me away! You get a lot for your money and get german engineering at its finest! Wouldn't go into anything else in this price range!"

Pros: "Great Price, Comfortable, Reliable, High MPG"

Cons: "Low Horsepower"

"The 2012 Passat TDI SE is a great vehicle to own if one would love a reliable vehicle that is comfortable, beautiful, and gets excellent mileage. The exterior has subtle yet striking lines and the interior is simple yet refined for the price range. The sound system is great and the electronic features are easy to use. There is ample seating and storage room. The high level of torque makes driving fun but the lack of horsepower can get disappointing at higher rpm's if you are used to a high level of performance. Overall this is a great vehicle to own if you would like to travel in style and comfort while getting some of the best fuel mileage available. I usually average 41 mpg per tank and have gotten up to 48 mpg on a trip."
