The 2018 Volkswagen Passat is a midsize sedan offered in 6 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $22,995. For that price, it mainly competes with the Ford Fusion, the Mazda 6, and the Subaru Legacy. Between 6 trims, the Passat offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine capable of making 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 280 horsepower-making 3.6L V6 engine. Both engines are mated to 6-speed automatic transmissions. The Passat reaches 60 mph from zero in 8.4 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 5.8 seconds with the V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Passat can manage a combined fuel economy of between 22 and 29 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 7 striking colors the Passat comes in really pull you towards itself.
