Breaking sales records this year, the new Volkswagen Passat is catching the attention of hundreds of thousands of Americans. Take a closer look at the features of the 2013 Volkswagen Passat to find out why it’s a midsize car worth your consideration.
In keeping with the design language that achieved fame for the automaker, Volkswagen styled the new Passat with a sharp-cornered, simple exterior. The thin grille, well-proportioned lights, and clean design scheme contribute to a style that’s certainly European, but undeniably unique. Even on the inside, where the comfortable cabin is styled with the same understated aesthetic, you’ll find an elegance that only the Volkswagen Passat provide.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found that the Volkswagen Passat excelled in all six categories of crash safety. Because of these stellar results, the VW Passat boasts an IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick Award. If you’re considering the Passat for your next family car, you’ll enjoy a peace of mind that’s hard to find other cars at this price.
Equip your 2013 Volkswagen Passat with one of three different engines: the base-level 170-horsepower five-cylinder that boasts 32 mpg on the highway, a 280-horsepower V6 that nets 28 mpg on the highway, or a 2.0-liter turbodiesel that is rated at 31 mpg in the city and 43 on the highway with a manual transmission. Whichever engine you choose, the highly efficient Passat will provide snappy acceleration.
Rear Seat Room, Cargo Space
When Volkswagen completely redesigned the Passat last year, they increased the car’s length and wheelbase to provide more space for cargo and passengers. The result is a midsize sedan that offers a spacious 15.9 cubic feet of trunk space and a three-inch increase in rear legroom that makes it easy up to three adults to find comfort in the back seat of the Passat.
