2017 VW Passat Features and Options – Video
Despite its German brand name and heritage, the Passat is a thoroughly American-style family sedan, from its limo-like rear seat to its supple ride. The base engine is a 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four with a six-speed automatic; a 280-hp 3.6-liter V-6 is optional. A quiet and exceptionally roomy cabin is the Passat’s strong point. Niceties such as touchscreen infotainment, Bluetooth, aluminum wheels, and dual-zone climate control are standard; SE and SEL trims get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
