2014 VW Passat Providence RI

One of the first questions we see when prospective car buyers stop by Speedcraft VW and begin perusing a vehicle as impressive as 2014 Volkswagen Passat is, Where do I even begin? It’s a little like heading to an a la carte steakhouse, seeing multiple attractive cuts of meat with assorted port reductions and marsala sauces–it’s easy to feel like you need a map, or at the very least, a tour guide. That’s essentially what we are in regard to the new 2014 VW Passat in Providence, RI: your friendly tour guide.

The tour begins with the four engine options available in the 2014 Passat–the base 2.5L, the turbo-charged 1.8T, the efficient TDI diesel, and a potent 3.6L V6. New for this model year, the 1.8T has arrived to considerable fanfare, offering more torque and maneuverability, while returning more fuel economy than the base engine. Meanwhile, the 2.0L four-cylinder diesel engine, the TDI, is truly a technological marvel: available in a manual transmission or automated manual transmission known as the DSG, the Passat TDI achieves and EPA-estimated 35 mpg combined with the manual, and 34 mpg with the DSG.
