Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

The new 2.0 turbo is impressively smooth. It might not be fast enough for some, with only 174 horsepower, but that’s what the V6 is for, with its huge increase in power of more than 100 horsepower.

The 6-speed automatic transmission matches the smoothness of the engine, and the 6-speed manual automatic DSG made by Volkswagen has long been the sharpest of the twin-clutch bunch.

The steering is responsive but still light, and the ride is on the firm side, firmer than the Accord and, especially, the Camry. Which is a good thing, since it’s always comfortable. The suspension doesn’t make the Passat a sport sedan, but it does make the car confident and composed on a highway with curves.

Walk Around

The Passat isn’t going to turn heads. It has similar lines to the smaller Volkswagen Jetta, but the Jetta carries them more cleanly. Different models have different trims in the grille and low front air intakes, and the less chrome cross-hatching, the better. That’s why we like the GT nose the most, although we could do without the boy-racer red outline around the black grille.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

The cabin is one area where the Passat is outstanding. It’s narrower than rivals like Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, but there’s more legroom in the rear, and the trunk’s capacity of nearly 16 cubic feet also is at the top of the segment.

The quality of the interior materials is high, but there’s less standard equipment than rivals offer and fewer features.

The SE might cost more, but we think it’s a better value, with standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, synthetic leather upholstery, moonroof, CarPlay/Android Auto, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Summary

Editor:

Volkswagen Passat is a well-engineered vehicle, but it’s pricey, and up against a strong competitor in the form of the all-new Honda Accord.
