GALLERY: Volkswagen Passat Specs

Starting MSRP of $22,440 for a 2017 Volkswagen Passat S 1.8L TSI® with 6-speed automatic transmission. Prices exclude transportation, taxes, title, other options and dealer charges.  Dealer sets actual price.

What We Like: If you frequently shuttle passengers in the rear seat, the Passat is the mid-size sedan for you. Space in the back is positively expansive, and back-seat riders are even treated to their own air vents, USB port, and heated seats in higher trim levels. Up front, the dashboard presents a clean, easy-to-use interface, with clear gauges and a central touchscreen with attractive graphics and a simple menu structure.

Like the previous generation, the B2 Passat was mainly sold with four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Unlike its predecessor, however, top-of the line versions received five-cylinder Audi or VW engines of 1. 9–2. 2 litres. The 5-cylinder version was sold in the US as the Quantum GL-5. In addition to four- and five-speed manuals and three-speed automatic gearboxes, the Passat/Santana was also available with the VW concern's interesting 4+E transmission. This, also called the "Formel E" had a particularly high top gear, which combined with a freewheeling mechanism, provided better gas mileage. An automatic stop/start was also available in some markets. The four-wheel-drive system used in the Passat Variant Syncro shared the mechanics of the Audi 80 and not the Volkswagen Golf Syncro. The Syncro's bottom plate was almost entirely different, requiring a transmission tunnel, a relocated gas tank and no spare tire well (to make room for the complex rear axle assembly). Only the more popular estate was reengineered. Syncro was also available in the North American market, only with the five-cylinder engine.
