2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2019 Honda Accord

For its past few generations, the Honda Accord has been a virtual king amongst audiences and critics in the midsize sedan segment of vehicles. Although unchanged for its 2019 model, this means the Honda Accord still sets a high bar for its competition to match. That’s why, in the interest of an exciting matchup, we’ve chosen the Honda Accord to match up against the newly redesign 2020 Volkswagen Passat!

Debuting back in January in Detroit and displaying yet again now at the Chicago Auto Show, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat replicates the stylish revitalization of the 2019 VW Jetta while upgrading tech and torque as well. Are these changes enough to surpass the 2019 Honda Accord? Let’s find out! It’s the 2020 Volkswagen Passat vs the 2019 Honda Accord!
