Performance Features Of The 2020 Passat

The 2020 Passat has a speedy performance with power features that match the sporty design. You’ll love zipping around town thanks to the standard turbocharged 174-hp 2.0L TSI engine that gets an impressive EPA-estimated 36mpg highway and 25mpg city. The 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode makes for smooth cruising through Hanover with the option to kick it into gear with a more active response. Add to the fun with available track-inspired paddle shifters that allow you to shift quickly and easily without lifting a hand from the wheel.

Style & Technology Of The 2020 Passat

Simple and practical are words that can describe the Volkswagen Passat, however, the redesigned 2020 model adds a stylish flair worth a double-take – especially if you go with the R-Line trim. The 2020 Passat’s bold attitude is created by the streamlined body, newly sculpted bumpers, new wheel designs, and attractive LED headlight shapes. The R-Line gets even sportier with its 19-inch wheels, aggressive R-Line bumpers and badging, heated outside mirrors, and a sunroof.

But what really matters is on the inside, right? You and your family will love the upscale cabin complete with available soft Nappa leather upholstery, heated front & rear seats, Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control, and plenty of legroom. Plus, the hands-free Easy Open trunk that opens with the wave of a foot makes loading up a breeze after a picnic at Codorus State Park or a trip to Gettysburg.

The 2020 Passat has a touchscreen display with App-Connect and VW Car-Net® Guide & Inform that will give you weather information, sports scores, easy navigation with traffic, and more! Plus, the available Fender® Premium Audio System will make every trip fun. More useful features include multiple USB ports and keyless access.

Safety Features Of The 2020 Passat

Safety is of utmost importance for Volkswagen because, after all, we’re the people’s car. The rigid safety cage of the 2020 Passat, the Intelligent Crash Response System, and the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System will protect your precious cargo in the event of an accident.

Many other enhanced safety features work to prevent incidents, like the Active Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Assist, Front Assist, and Rear Traffic Alert that will warn you when you’re getting too close for comfort so you have time to respond. Plus, there are seven stability-enhancing systems, like Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution, to ensure your vehicle stays balanced and in-control on the road.
