2016 Volkswagen Passat Cars.com Best Midsize Sedan

When it comes to the midsize sedan segment, to say there are a lot of options to choose from would be a huge understatement. And to test drive all of them would be a huge inconvenience on the everyday driver. That’s why the automotive website Cars.com has taken it upon themselves to test out the nine best-selling models, and they’ve come to the conclusion that the winner of the Best Midsize Sedan category is none other than our very own 2016 Volkswagen Passat.

To decide on a winner, Cars.com compiled a team of car experts to take the nine best-selling midsize sedans out on a 220-mile road course. On this drive, each model was evaluated based on its major features like on-road handling and trunk space.

Making the grade

In order to qualify for the Best Midsize Sedan category, each model needed to offer an automatic transmission, cost a maximum of $28,000 and offer at least a combined EPA rating of 28 mpg. For the purpose of this evaluation, Cars.com looked at the 2016 Volkswagen Passat SE, which scored well both with the professional testers and real-word shoppers in terms of performance, tech, design and interior quality.

The 2016 Passat was commended for its “Outstanding driving performance,” according to Aaron Bragman, Cars.com’s Detroit bureau chief, as well as its “Quick acceleration, solid steering, strong brakes and utter lack of road or engine noise around town.”
