Performance Specifications

2018 Volkswagen Passat Comfortable Passenger Space

The 2018 Volkswagen Passat is powered by an impressively authoritative 2.0L TSI® DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This engine, which works alongside a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode, delivers an incredible 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

On top of this power output, this standard engine also provides drivers with impressive fuel economy. Thanks to its direct fuel injection technology, you’ll get an efficient EPA-estimated 36 highway/25 city MPG.1

If you’re looking for more power, you have the option to upgrade to the available high-powered 3.6L V6 engine. This energetic engine is paired with the available 6-speed DSG® transmission, which helps you take advantage of the V6’s 280 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. With this much power, you’ll have an exciting drive every time on top of great grip and command of the road.

Comfortable Interior

While the 2018 Volkswagen Passat is a sedan, it offers plenty of space for both passengers and cargo. In the front seats, you’ll have 42.4 inches of legroom and 38.3 inches of headroom. Second-row passengers will be just as comfortable with 39.1 inches of legroom and 57 inches of shoulder room. You’ll have plenty of room for all your stuff, too, with the VW Passat and its 15.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

You can upgrade the interior of your Volkswagen Passat for even more comfort. This model offers heated seats for all five passengers, as well as the Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control system. This system lets you set a desired temperature, and it’ll take care of the rest by maintaining that temperature, so you don’t have to mess with the controls while you’re driving.
