As VW’s largest sedan, the 2019 Passat does battle with such heavyweights as the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry. Despite a slowdown in sedan sales, the Passat remains an attractive prospect, offering good performance, fuel economy and safety in the only midsize German sports sedan you can buy under $30,000.
New Features and Revisions
For 2019, Volkswagen reduces the number of Passat trims to just two: Wolfsburg Edition and SE R-Line. The move consolidates equipment and standard features, making forward-collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitor and rear traffic alert standard on every car. The V6 GT has been dropped.
