Volkswagen reintroduces their midsize sedan, the Passat, as newly redesigned for 2020. With both noticeable and subtle tweaks in the front, profile, rear and cabin — the 2020 Volkswagen Passat has been upgraded with a sophisticated new look and better technology. “Passat is the only midsize sedan to offer German driving dynamics at an affordable price…” said Scott Keogh, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen.
For 2020, Volkswagen went for a more “coupe-like” profile for the redesigned sedan. At first glance, you’ll immediately notice the 2020 Passat is sporting a new front grille –it’s a larger, flashier chrome grid. LED headlights and taillights are both standard. Thanks to its numerous new curves, lines and creases, it can easily be mistaken for a luxury brand. The Passat also sports 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels but 18 – and 19- inch are available for an even more upgraded look.
Inside the Passat, find premium tech with an “interior that features Audi-inspired MMI (multi-media interface) touch pads” according to KBB.com. You’ll be able to cruise around South Florida without ever feeling disconnected thanks to the Passat’s connectivity features. Volkswagen installed a new, glass-covered, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and MirrorLink, now standard. MirrorLink helps bring your apps to the dashboard so you can stay connected, conveniently and safely. And for audiophiles, higher trims feature the Fender® Premium Audio System. Dual-zone climate control, heated front and rear seats are other available interior options.
The redesigned interior comes with a new, more modern instrument panel and dashboard. Cloth seats are standard for the base trim. For more frill, all trims can be upgraded to V-Tex leatherette or Nappa Leather.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat still comes in four trim levels: S, SE, SEL and R-Line. A launch-only Limited model will be available for a short amount of time. And now, all Passat sedans are exclusively powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 174-horsepower and an upgraded 207 lb-ft of torque. It will get an EPA estimated 25 mpgs in the city and 36 mpgs on the highway.
Volkswagen believes in putting people first and proves it with their warranty and safety features. The 2020 Passat is backed by America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. That’s 6-years/72,000-miles of bumper-to-bumper transferable coverage. The new 2020 VW Passat offers an inclusive collection of standard and available driver-assistance technology features. Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert come standard in every Passat. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, which actively helps the driver steer the car back into its lane should the vehicle drift into another lane without using the turn signal, and Parking Steering Assistant are available driver-assistance features.
