2015 Passat features

We’re sure that this new upgrade is going to bring a lot of improvements to the Passat, however there are quite a few things that the 2015 Passat got right. For starters, it offers one of the roomiest interiors in its segment while still remaining affordable and efficient. If we had to say, we would guess that Volkswagen will stick to what works for the Passat in terms of pricing, efficiency and interior space.

Here are a few of the things we liked in the 2015 Passat:

  • 3 engine options. No matter what kind of power and responsiveness you’re looking for, you’ll find it with the Passat. These options include the impressive TDI model with offers an EPA rating of 44 mpg on the highway.
  • It was a 2014 Top Safety Pick by IIHS thanks to its extensive safety features. Odds are Volkswagen will continue this tradition of prioritizing driver and passenger safety.
  • Standard connection with your mobile device through Bluetooth®. This feature allows for easy hands-free phone calls, messaging and navigation.
