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

The 2015 Volkswagen Passat resides in one of the fiercest automotive segments – that of the midsize family sedan. Here heavyweights such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Ford Fusion battle for king-of-the-hill status. And each year the stakes are raised as new sedans increase in sophistication. While rivals have brought hybrid powertrains, premium amenities and ever-more transmission speeds to the table, the Passat has a few aces up its own sleeve. The 2015 Passat remains the only sedan in its segment to offer a high-mileage diesel engine, boasts limousine-like rear-seat legroom, and has handling manners that are proudly German. The Passat lacks the latest tech features, but its positive attributes and European design help it remain a contender.
