4dr DSG Komfort FWD
Starting at | Starting at 22 MPG City - 31 MPG Highway
For being in the same category as Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the Passat offers many upscale features standard, such as heated windshield washer nozzles. It's also got plenty of space inside for people and gear in either sedan or wagon form, with a reasonably powerful turbocharged engine to haul it all around. The Passat may not have the fuel sipping TDI clean diesel engine as an option, but even-so, it turns in a respectable 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
The Passat got stripped down to basics for 2009, so a few things were added for 2010 to fill out the package. The automatic transmission has been replaced with Volkswagen's 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic shifting. The steering wheel got a major upgrade to being leather-wrapped and multi-functional and Bluetooth is now standard. New 17-inch wheels are standard, too, with optional 18-inch wheels and sport suspension available this year.
There are two versions of the Passat, a wagon and a sedan, that are nearly identical but for the back half of the car. They both have an inline 4-cylinder engine with 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Though it's disguised as a sensible family car, the Passat reaches 60 mph from a stop in 7.4 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. It uses a 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic for manual shifting.
