2018 Volkswagen Passat Orwigsburg, PA

After much anticipation, both of Volkswagen's reliable sedans have returned with new models in time for the end of the year. We here at J. Bertolet Volkswagen welcome both the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2018 Volkswagen Passat to the VW family.

As we've previously covered the brand-new 2018 Jetta, today we'd like to take a closer look at the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. Designed as an improvement to the Jetta in terms of power, size, and features among other areas, the 2018 Passat remains a durable, reliable, and fashionable upgrade. Let's take a look to see all that the Passat has improved upon since its previous year that makes it worth a purchase.

Light Blue Engine


The 2018 Volkswagen Passat offers a small upgrade in engine size, growing its inline 4 engine from 1.8 L to 2 L. This has awarded the Passat an advancement in horsepower achieved at a far lower rotation. Now, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat produces up to a near-even balance of 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The new 2018 Passat also improves its fuel economy, moving a combined city and highway MPG of 27 in its 2017 model up to a combined MPG of 29 with its 2018 model.


Light Blue Cloud Wi-Fi Transfer


Volkswagen's signature VW Car-Net® infotainment system is a standard feature in every baseline model of the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. Built to help navigate, inform, and entertain whenever necessary, the VW Car-Net® system comes with plenty of helpful features. Along with a variety of applications available to download, the VW Car-Net® infotainment system comes equipped with App-Connect for smartphone streaming. Android and Apple smartphones can stream any app they have over the Passat's premium audio system and also on the VW Car-Net® gesture-controlled touchscreen.


Light Blue Car Silhouette


The Volkswagen Passat is built to create a different and distinct style over the more traditional Volkswagen Jetta sedan. With a larger build, sporty bumpers, new grille and headlights, and more, the Passat sets itself apart. Beyond its initial look found on the baseline trim level, drivers can find additional options for exterior and interior customization with the Passat's multiple trim options. No matter how you want you ride styled, you can find a way with the 2018 Passat.
