2016 Volkswagen Passat Pricing

Volkswagen Passat Model Summary

The midsized Passat sedan has a lot going for it, including generous interior space, responsive handling, and a comfortable, quiet ride. The primary powertrain is an energetic 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic. High-end versions use a powerful 3.6-liter V6. The 1.8-liter turbo averaged a very good 28-mpg overall and 39 on the highway. The diesel has strong mid-range punch and got 36-mpg overall, but some clatter is audible at low speeds. Front seats are accommodating but very firm. Extra-spacious rear seats are a big plus, and the trunk is huge, but fit and finish is more mundane than spectacular. Reliability has been average. Tests of the diesel Passat took place prior to the EPA notification of emissions violations and we will retest it once a recall repair is completed. VW has suspended all sales of the diesel for 2016.
