2013 Volkswagen Passat Review

This car was built by drivers for drivers. It strikes a sporty balance between efficiency and power. The Passat comes standard with a 170-horsepower in-line 5-cylinder engine. If you’re looking for the power and oomph of a V6 the available 3.6 liter 280-horse power engine will make a lasting impression. The available 6-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic offers imperceptibly fast gear changes. Step inside and you’ll find available soft leather to soothe you. An available sunroof to let the open sky in. The Passat lets you make calls with a push of a button. Get turn-by-turn directions from an available navigation system. Even control the entertainment from your steering wheel. And not just any entertainment either. It’s an available Fender™ Premium Audio System. There are more than a dozen safety features specifically designed to help you prevent a collision. In addition to airbags every Passat has a specially reinforced safety cage complete with anti-intrusion side beams and heat-formed B-pillars designed to help protect you in the event of a collision. The 2013 Passat it commands more than just the road.
