Edmunds.com and Cars.com Praise 2017 Volkswagen Passat

February 20th, 2017 by

“Decidedly upscale,” says Edmunds.com of 2017 Volkswagen Passat’s modern styling. from Cars.com: “quick acceleration, solid steering, [and] outstanding driving performance.” And we at Diehl Volkswagen, seeing how far Passat has come from classic to now, can surely see whence came the appreciation for the new 2017 midsize iteration.

And it’s not just an impeccable, family-friendly standard offering consisting of a road-worthy 1.8L, 170-horsepower, 184 lb.-ft.-of-torque turbocharged engine with up to 23 mpg city and up to 34 mpg highway fuel economy. Nor is it just the best-in-class rear legroom made possible by a veritable cavern of cargo space. 2017 Passat is a model of handling and beauty, too.

An available smooth-operating DSG® automatic transmission with track-inspired, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters make it easy to keep hands at ten and two when you need to, and options to shift manually in Tiptronic® mode or put a little extra drive behind Passat in Sport mode deliver that solid feel of underfoot control that enthusiasts crave. And Passat’s interior is a showcase of elegance, with available wood-textured trim and aluminum appearance accents to please the eye while you recline in the comfort of available heated front and rear seats, adjusting Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate controls to suit.

Need cargo capacity for that upcoming trip? 60/40-split folding rear seats with a pass-through let you store luggage and access it with ease using the hands-free trunk. So check the available frameless, auto-dimming rearview mirror, activate available LED headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights and hit the road to adventure.
