2012 VW Passat, completely redesigned

Friday, July 20th 2012. | Volkswagen

2012 VW Passat inspired from German dynamic design, but as American midsize sedan product for Americans regardless. Than its predecessor, now present bigger, bolder, and available lower price. We will like the spacious cabin (particularly rear-seat), competitive price, refined ride, and excellent fuel economy for diesel model. And we won’t like the unimpressive base engine, without rearview camera, and a bit road noise. Widely offered up to 14 trim selection which based on three powertrains: 5-cylinder, diesel, and V6 engine.
