If you’re looking for a sedan that offers comfort, style, durability and long-lasting quality, you won’t have to look any further than the 2020 Volkswagen Passat. With a fresh, refined look and redesigned VW badging, the Passat is all class.

From subtle, complementary exterior accents to premium comfort and convenience features inside, you’ll be impressed with everything the Passat has to offer. But there’s one thing you’ll be even more impressed with: the price. Volkswagen believes that quality and refinement shouldn’t cost you more, and that’s why the Passat is offered at an incredible price point. You’re sure to get everything you need – and want – out of this mid-size sedan. Beyond a great first impression, it’s equipped with many features that will make your drive comfortable, easy and safe.

The Passat’s exterior features modern, sleek contouring, complemented by standard LED headlights, running daytime lights and taillights, and it sits on 16” Carolina alloy wheels. Accessing your trunk is easy with the available power trunk with Easy Open functionality. If your hands are full, not to worry. With the simple wave of your foot beneath the trunk area, the trunk will open, hands-free.

But you’ll be most impressed with the spacious interior. You and your passengers will experience an exceptionally comfortable ride, with ample legroom for everyone. The roomy interior features premium cloth or leatherette seating surfaces and 60/40 split-folding rear seats to maximize interior space even more. Finally, heated front seats are sure to add to your comfort on colder days.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 4-cylinder 2.0 TSI engine, delivering 174 horsepower and 206 lb.-ft. of torque. The Passat is also equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic capability, so your drive will be just as fun as it is comfortable. Hitting the road is easy with Volkswagen’s KESSY keyless access and push-button start function. And that’s not all: with the Passat’s remote start function, you’ll be able to start your vehicle from the key fob. Whether you’re looking to warm up your Passat in the winter or cool it down in the summer, you’ll experience comfortable temperatures as soon as you step inside.

The Passat is packed with comfort and convenience features to make your drive easier and more fun. The 6.3” infotainment touchscreen allows you to have easy access to music and entertainment.

But the technology you’ll find in the 2020 Passat isn’t just for entertainment; it’s also to provide the highest level of active safety. This sedan offers several standard and optional safety features to ensure that you and your passengers always feel safe on the road.
