Pulling together a reserved, yet highly fashionable look is a difficult task. The new 2016 Volkswagen Passat in Allentown PA is a modern mix of European sophistication and enviable good-looks. VW built up the mid-size family sedan to be a determined success in the wake of their recent PR nightmare, and we think the Passat is strong enough on all fronts to stand against the deluge of bad press. New for 2016 are all new hood, front fenders, front and rear bumpers and trunklid designs, plus VW's new MIB II system with Car-Net connectivity, to allow you to seamlessly connect nearly any smartphone to your new Passat.
Automatic Post-Collision Braking is also a new standard feature on the 2016 Passat, plus a rearview camera. Other standard features include a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, side mirror turn signals, automatic headlights, daytime running lights, 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, an AUX-in for portable audio players, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a CD player, multi-function steering wheel, cloth interior, manually-adjusting front seats, driver's seat adjustable lumbar support and a 60/40-split folding rear seat.
A 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard and makes 170 horsepower with the base five-speed manual transmission. One, fully-loaded Passat trim carries a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower and has a standard 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission.
The 2016 Passat Limited Edition features add-ons that increase value without slipping out of your conservative budget. Look for upscale features like push-button start, a rearview camera, leatherette seating surfaces and foglights -- all starting under $24K.
The Passat 1.8T gets an impressive 35 MPG highway EPA-rated fuel economy, while the V6 comes in at 28 MPG highway, according to the EPA. All Passat trims are designed for optimal fuel efficiency and low-drag with a new horizontally-oriented exterior design.
