While some road adventures include things that are sometimes out of your control, the 2019 Volkswagen Passat gives you the feeling of being in complete control with a ride geared toward meeting the needs of the entire family.
The 2019 Passat features a six-speed automatic transmission paired with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, giving you a seamless transition from zero to 60 mph when you venture onto the freeway. Turn on Sport mode, and you’ll feel the exhilaration of gear changes all the more than before. You can change gears without taking your hands off the steering wheel with the available paddle shifters mounted on the wheel. Fuel economy for the Passat sits comfortably at 25 mpg in the city and a commendable 36 mpg on the highway.*
With over three feet of rear legroom in the 2019 Passat, your passengers will have plenty of room to stretch out. The cabin offers a homey feeling of luxury with V-Tex leatherette seats. The surface looks and feels good, and it is easy to clean.
If your family is too warm or too cold at the same time, no need to worry. The Passat’s Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control creates peace and harmony for everyone.
The bells and whistles of this midsize car bring convenience to extensive road trips as well as short drives to local attractions. With the hands-free open trunk, loading up your sports equipment for family day at the park is indeed a walk in the park. You can stay connected with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and enjoy the rich, clear sound of available SiriusXM® channels blasting from your Fender® Premium Audio System. With the subscription to SiriusXM, you’ll also know every turn in your adventure, plus the temperature, traffic status and sports scores with VW Car-Net® Guide & Inform. With the VW Car-Net® Security & Service, you’ll receive a message or call for an open sunroof, unlocked doors or the location of where you parked.
Backing up its NHTSA 5-Star Safety Rating, the Passat stamps even more emphasis on your family’s safety with a backup camera, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert and Lane Assist. In the event of a crash that releases airbags, the safety cage around the Passat includes front and rear crumple zones that absorb energy from the collision. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System stops your car after a crash to keep you out of further harmful impact. The VW Intelligent Crash Response System turns off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and activates the hazard lights all at once.
Whether you need reliable, durable transportation for that weekend getaway or a cozy vehicle with heated front seats for the winter months ahead, you and your family will be right at home in the 2019 Volkswagen Passat.
