2009 Volkswagen Passat Review

The 2009 Passat - High on German engineering. Low on Ego. It’s time to take care of your-self. Performance comfort and style you’ve been yearning for. The new VW face with its chrome radiator evoking a coat of arms and the challenging stare of the headlights start the flow of this superbly designed vehicle. Waiting for you under the hood is the compact and lightweight 2 Liter turbo engine that dekivers a lot of power in a small package. And because it’s a 4-cylinder power player it’s fuel efficient too! If you need an extra kick step up to the 3.6L 280 Horse Power engine and fly on down the road. For the road of life! Twenty of our most important features work together to make the all new German engineered Passat a Top Safety Pick. At Volkswagen our vehicles are designed for Autobahn safety from the inside out. Inside and out the Passat is the portrayal of Volkswagen engineering. The 2008 Volkswagen Passat. The essential car for your being.
