2015 VW Passat Providence RI

Our preview last week of the 2015 VW Tiguan was so much fun, we figured that we’d just continue the welcoming party here at Speedcraft VW. After all, this truly is the best time of year. You know how people will chirp during the springtime about how everything is so fresh and new? Well, this time of year is springtime for auto dealerships. So many new models! So much to be excited about! Such as, for example, the 2015 VW Passat!

The interior of the 2015 VW Passat features upscale upholstery and next-generation technology.

In terms of overall quality and dependability, the Passat has long had a generational appeal about it. It’s been so good for so long that it really shouldn’t be surprising that this is the finest model year ever; what might be surprising, however, is just how great the latest Passat actually is. With sleek styling, soft-touch interior materials and great strides made in terms of technology, the 2015 VW Passat is a fine example of the German automaker’s dedication to crafting vehicles that are both fun to drive and envelope-pushing in every way.

Available in five trim levels and with three distinct engine choices, the 2015 VW Passat is also among the most customizable mid-size sedans available today. The best way to break down the engines is also quite simple: simply ask, what do you want? World-beating fuel efficiency and turbocharged agility? Try the diesel-powered 2.0L four-cylinder TDI, which delivers as much as 44 highway mpg according to EPA estimates, as well as a spry 150 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. Want power and excellent acceleration? Then you’ll be wanting the 3.6L V6, which churns out 280 hp with a zero-to-sixty time of just 6.4 seconds. And, for the best of both worlds, the 1.8T four-cylinder offers 170 hp and 36 highway mpg. Without a doubt, this is a team of powertrains worth writing home about.

With the Passat’s one-touch sunroof, you’ll be seeing nothing but blue skies.

This level of sophistication continues inside the 2015 Passat, which is among the segment’s most spacious. When we say that you could comfortably fit five six-footers in the Passat, we aren’t joking. Don’t believe us? Come to Speedcraft VW and see for yourself. Additionally, the 15.9 cubic feet of trunk space is exceedingly generous, and can be easily accessed by way of the 60/40-split-folding rear seat. And, with truly upscale upholstery materials throughout and updated technology features such as VW’s Car-Net telematics system, the Passat offers excellent luxury while remaining exceedingly affordable.

So come and try the 2015 VW Passat for yourself at Speedcraft VW. We believe that you’ll come away impressed. Schedule your test drive today.
