About Volkswagen Passat
The Volkswagen Passat is a midsize family car on the road since 1973, and well suited for consumers after more luxury than they usually find in a standard family car. It has grown from a two- and four-door compact family car at its introduction, to become an entry-level luxury car over successive generations.
Passat's trim has features available in more expensive models, making it a superior family vehicle without the premium price tag. It's also a consistent road performer, well known for sharp handling and smooth ride. Today's Passat Wagon has cargo capacity similar to some full-sized SUVs, and a spacious, roomy cabin. Passat's luxury trim includes a leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel, anti-lock brakes that tap the brakes to keep them dry in the rain; heated anti-fog side view mirrors; cooled glovebox, sunroof, satellite radio, alloy wheels and several other premium features.
The name "Passat" is derived from the German language word for "tradewind." For a limited period, VW used types of winds to name its product line, and several current and defunct Volkswagen models received wind names.
Passat was considered one of Europe's most modern family cars when introduced in 1973. Along with its sister vehicle, the VW Golf introduced in 1974, the Passat was the first in a new generation of technically advanced Volkswagens to use a modern front-wheel drive and a water-cooled engine. A duel-clutch transmission is now standard. Passat's fuel-sipping, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine pumps out 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque.
Since 2006, Passat has been one of Volkswagen's best selling car in every market worldwide. Among other awards since 1998, Passat was named the Best Family Car award by Auto Used Car Express Honours four times.
