With generous interior space, responsive handling, and a comfortable, quiet ride, the Passat is a competitive midsized sedan. The primary powertrain is an energetic 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder that's mated to 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. Front seats are very accommodating. Rear-seat occupants will appreciate the extra-spacious cabin, and the trunk is huge. Improved interior fit and finish is a plus, and for 2017 VW made active safety features such as automatic emergency braking standard. Reliability has dropped below average.
