Benefits of Driving a 2014 Volkswagen Passat Sedan

The Passat is a midsized sedan, fully competitive in price and features with other high-value mid-size models such as the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima. 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 manages an astonishing 43 mpg EPA highway rating--enough to beat many hybrids.

What's new for 2014?

The Passat replaces last year's 2.5L 5-cylinder engine with a more efficient and more powerful 1.8L turbocharged 4-cylinder unit. Volkswagen Car-Net telematics is also available for 2014.

Model Strengths

  • Vast backseat space
  • comfortable ride
  • crisp handling
  • smooth available VR6
  • excellent efficiency from the TDI model

Model Review

The 2014 Passat features the choice of three engines. 1.8T Passats come with a 170-horsepower, 1.8L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, offered either with a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or optional 6-speed automatic. TDI-equipped models get a 140-hp turbo-diesel 4-cylinder engine, while top-of-the-range 3.6L V6-equipped Passats 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.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
