A Complete Overview of the Volkswagen Passat

Thinking about riding into the new year with a brand-new ride? You may want to pump your breaks during your vehicle search when you come across the Volkswagen Passat.

Here’s why.

The Volkswagen in general maintains a strong reputation in the United States, including in Virginia. But the Passat especially stands out for being an economical, all-inclusive, and reliable car that the whole family can enjoy. For this reason, it was called the top mid-sized vehicle in 2019.

Before you buy, though, you should be aware of the various Passat trim levels and features. Here’s everything you need know about Volkswagen Passat trims.

Let’s dive in!

Volkswagen Passat S

The Volkswagen Passat S trim level features a two-liter turbo engine along with powerful light-emitting diode, or LED, projector headlights. This trim level also stands out for its handy memory settings.

With the Passat S, you also receive the benefit of a rear-view car camera and even collision warning. This trim option also includes blind spot monitoring.

Inside of the car, you can enjoy comfortable cloth seating and a convenient leaving/coming home feature as well.

Volkswagen Passat SE

The Passat SE trim level features everything that comes with the Passat S plus several additional features. These include windshield wipers that sense rain and even a remote starting system. The car also comes with cruise control that adapts to your driving needs.

Inside of the car, you can enjoy heated seats in the front as well. In addition, the car comes with leatherette seating and even a leather-wrapped gearshift knob and steering wheel for comfortable and classy handling.

A lane-keeping driving system is another added benefit of the Passat SE.

Volkswagen Passat R-Line

The Passat R-Line includes the majority of the Passat SE’s features but also includes sideview mirrors that are heated, as well as ambient lighting in the interior.

This trim level additionally comes with power tilting, a sliding sunroof, and 19-inch two-tone, five-spoke alloy wheels.

Volkswagen Passat SEL

Finally, the Passat SEL trim level features most of what comes in the Passat R-Line plus a few bonuses. These include sideview mirrors that are power folding. Other features that drivers can enjoy include corner illumination and heated outboard seats in the back.
