The Passat's six-speed automatic transmission is replaced by Volkswagen's new DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) automatic, which is far superior to the auto/manual gearbox it replaces. Bluetooth hands-free cell phone connectivity is also made standard on both the Sedan and Wagon.
The all-new 2007 Volkswagen Passat Wagon is the more versatile version of the all-new Passat sedan that was introduced for the 2006 model year. Unlike the sedan, which competes against such benchmarks as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the Passat Wagon has few (if any) direct competitors. The interior is a cut or two above that of any comparably equipped wagon in its price range and its handling characteristics are completely European sedan-like. Whether you're looking for a versatile sedan substitute or a more efficient, more enthusiastic SUV replacement, the Passat Wagon won't disappoint.
