The Volkswagen Passat is available in two different body styles for 2009--a sedan and a wagon. Both are offered in just the Komfort trim level and come powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that generates an impressive 200 horsepower and 207 ft-lb of torque. Power is delivered to the front wheels through a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission.
2016,The Passat sedan offers a modest 14.2-cubic-foot trunk, but the wagon has a cavernous 35.8 cubic-foot cargo space, expandable to more than 61 cubic feet with the split-folding rear seatbacks down. The wagon includes a 12-volt power outlet in back, along with a power-operated hatch.
2016,All Passats include Volkswagen's electronic stabilization program (ESP) with electronic differential locking, which helps maintain stability and traction. Anti-lock brakes are also standard and include brake assist for more effective emergency stopping, plus a brake-wiping feature to keep them dry in wet weather. Six air bags are standard, including side-impact front air bags and side-curtain bags for outboard occupants. Rear-seat side-impact air bags--a feature not widely available in this class--are optional.
2016,Passat Komfort models come nicely equipped with power sunroofs, daytime running halogen lights, 12-way power heated driver's seats, brushed stainless interior trim, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with Tiptronic controls, cruise control, air conditioning, and much more in the way of luxury and convenience features.
2016,Options on the Passat include several body add-ons like spoilers and ground effects kits, as well as a revamped Navigation Infotainment Package, which features a 30GB hard drive, DVD playback, USB flash drive port, and high-resolution touch-screen display.
