2016 Volkswagen Passat ratings and reviews

The 2016 Volkswagen Passat doesn't lack in features that boost safety and convenience in its base model, but its five other trim levels offer technology and luxury for almost any driver. The base S includes a 5-inch color touchscreen display, a CD player, Bluetooth technology, automatic post-collision braking, dual-zone climate control, and a rearview camera. SE adds a larger infotainment display, a power sunroof, and leatherette seats, while SEL gets leather seats, a rear-seat pass-through, a premium Fender audio system, and memory settings for the driver’s seat. A remote start, blind spot monitoring, and Park Distance Control are included with SEL Premium, while the top-tier V6 SEL Premium receives a six-speed automatic transmission, paddle shifters, and a 3.5-liter VR6 engine, which is optional on other trims. A Lighting Package for all Passat trims includes LED headlights and daytime running lights, while a Technology Package for SE adds a push-button start, blind spot monitoring, and heated rear seats to the trim’s lineup.
