The 2018 VW Passat is perfect for families because it offers one of the largest back seats in the midsize-sedan class and a spacious 15.9-cubic-foot trunk. It’s also available with long list of active and passive safety systems, and it’s rated a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you’re looking for an all-wheel-drive midsize sedan, look elsewhere; all 2018 VW Passats are front-wheel drive. In this class only the Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy offer AWD. Also, VW does not offer a Passat hybrid. For an electrified midsize, shop the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion.
What's New for 2018
For 2018 the new VW Passat gets a new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that is more powerful and more fuel-efficient than the 1.8-liter it replaces. The sedan’s longer 6-year or 72,000-mile warranty is also new. And there’s a new Passat GT model with a lower sport suspension, 19-inch wheels and 280-horsepower V6 engine.
