2016 Volkswagen Passat Named Best Midsize Sedan by Cars.com

July 8th, 2016 by

The Cars.com 2016 Midsize Sedan Challenge has concluded, and here at Diehl Volkswagen, we’re proud to announce that the 2016 Volkswagen Passat skated away with top honors and the title 2016 “Best Midsize Sedan.” Of course we like to see our great Volkswagen models getting the recognition so deserved, but what we love is passing along those perks and benefits to you, our valued customers.

The Midsize Sedan Challenge is no small beans; it saw nine of the top contenders from across the most popular brands pitted against one another on a pretty grueling 220-mile road course. The competitors were judged on aspects of the overall ride, as well as aspects like acceleration, handling, braking, available and standard features, cargo space, technology, and more. There’s a lot to love inside the 2016 Volkswagen Passat, and judges lauded its whisper-quiet cabin, smooth ride, fresh cabin design, solid steering, and impressive driving mechanics. Across the board, everyone was impressed with the value in the safety technology, with its collision-avoidance and emergency braking system coming standard; features you often find bundled into expensive packages or that you have to pay a premium for as an add-on.

“We are thrilled for the Passat to be named Best Midsize Sedan by Cars.com against such formidable competition. The Passat offers the perfect combination of sophisticated styling, outstanding App-Connect technology, and the great driving dynamics that Volkswagen is known for, making it an outstanding consumer value.” –Hinrich J. Woebcken, President & CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

“The Passat came in first place with both our expert judges and in-market shoppers. This midsize sedan is a refreshed version of the Passat that won Cars.com’s Best of 2012 award; it’s still tremendously roomy and for 2016 got a ton of tech upgrades like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. In addition to the roominess, tech and safety, the standout feature of the Passat is its driving ability. Everyone who drove it unanimously agreed, the Passat is plain old fun to drive.” –Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s editor-in-chief
