The Volkswagen brand has long been associated with quality, safety, and performance and the 2016 Passat embodies all three. Read more to discover why you should consider a used model for your next car.
This Volkswagen comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which delivers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. An Edmunds test drive found that it went from 0 to 60 in just 7.7 seconds. It has a respectable fuel economy of 25 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
Not surprisingly, the Passat performed well in crash tests, receiving a five out of five overall score from the government, along with a five-star rating in side crash protection and frontal-impact protection. It also garnered a “Good” score (the top possible score) from the IIHS in roof-strength, moderate-overlap, and side-impact tests.
Driving the 2016 Passat is an experience not to be missed. Thanks to exceptional insulation, you and your passengers will be oblivious to bumpy roads. Steering is precise and responsive. Best of all, everyone will be exceedingly comfortable in the expertly designed seats. App-savvy drivers will love the smartphone integration, which allows you to connect to apps like Stitcher and Spotify.
