If you are in the market for a well-round, reliable sedan, consider the 2016 Volkswagen Passat R-Line. This mid-size model is ideal for daily driving and small families. Loaded with high-tech safety features, this five-seater scored an exceptional 5-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
Powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, the Passat generates 170 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, it gets an impressive 29 mpg combined (25 city/38 highway). Performance tests at Edmunds showed that it went from zero to 60 mph in just 7.7 seconds.
The sporty R-Line trim level includes 19-inch alloy wheels and automatic headlights. The cabin boasts leatherette upholstery and heated front seats. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob both add a touch of elegance to the interior. The infotainment interface operates on a 5-in touchscreen and has Bluetooth capabilities for hands-free calling. There is also an auxiliary jack to hook up your smartphone to listen to music.
