Continue reading our expert review below, where we have all the details on the 2017 Volkswagen Passat near Orlando, including the full powertrain lineup and available safety features.

Luxury-Rivaling Amenities

The 2017 Volkswagen Passat in Sanford is a handsome sedan inside and out. Chrome exterior trim and exhaust tip, alloy wheels and available LED headlights all add to the family car's head-turning appeal. Inside, the Passat sits at the top of its class for both cabin room and trunk space, and can be fully loaded with premium trimmings and technology. Starting on the base S trim, the sedan is equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, driver's seat lumbar support, a touchscreen sound system with Bluetooth audio streaming and a rearview camera. Leatherette or leather seating, heated front and rear seats, an 8-speaker audio system, and a navigation package are a few of the additional luxuries that come on select trims.

Optional V6 Engine

Athletic with finely-tuned steering, the Volkswagen Passat is proof that fuel-efficient family cars can be a thrill to drive. Sport mode and available paddle shifters also add to the mid-size sedan's exciting performance. Standard on most trims, a 1.8-liter turbo and six-speed automatic duo offers quite a bit of power at 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The Passat can also be had with a brawny 3.6-liter V6 rated at 280 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic, the V6 powertrain is comparable to those found on higher-end luxury cars, according to 2017 Volkswagen Passat reviews.

Standard and Available Safety Equipment

The Passat also impresses when it comes to safety and many 2017 Volkswagen Passat reviews call it one of the safest mid-size sedans in its segment. A forward collision mitigation system is now included in the standard equipment alongside automatic post-collision braking, intelligent crash response, and stability and traction control. Higher grades add adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, lane assist, rear traffic alert and more that take some of the stress off of the daily commute.
