The new 2012 Passat is no longer a premium-priced model; Volkswagen has made this redesigned model fully competitive in price and features with other high-value models such as the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima, and configured it size-wise to directly take on the Honda Accord. VW meanwhile has increased standard feature content and simplified the Passat to just 16 build combinations, all while lowering prices--meaning that if it's simply a well-equipped mid-size sedan you're seeking, the Passat is likely going to look like a great deal. The Passat remains one of the few mid-size sedans to offer the option of a manual transmission and the only non-luxury mid-size to offer a diesel. That TDI model comes with an astonishing 43-mpg EPA highway rating--enough to beat some hybrids.
Volkswagen has completely redesigned its mid-size Passat for 2012, and while doing so, stretching it in size by several inches in overall length and wheelbase. This yields significantly more interior space--especially for backseat passengers. Ride quality is improved, too. Meanwhile, Volkswagen has expanded the standard feature list while trimming down options and build combinations--all while lowering the price significantly on some of the variants. At the same time, VW has brought an optional TDI clean-diesel engine back to the Passat.
The 2012 Volkswagen Passat lineup has been completely configured compared to last year's model. It's now offered in three different trims: S, SE and SEL. Among those trims, there are three different powertrains. Base 2.5 S, 2.5 SE and 2.5 SEL models come with a 177-horsepower, 2.5L 5-cylinder engine, offered either with a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or optional 6-speed automatic. TDI SE and TDI SEL Premium models add the 140-hp, 2.0L TDI diesel 4-cylinder engine, while top-of-the-range 3.6 SE and 3.6 SEL models step up to a 280-horsepower, 3.6L 'VR6' 6-cylinder engine. Both the TDI and VR6 engines come only with a 6-speed dual clutch DSG automatic transmission that can pull of remarkably quick shifts.
