2019 Volkswagen Passat Review
When Pittsburgh drivers want a midsize sedan that coasts beyond middle-of-the-road comfort, they can always turn to the Volkswagen brand.
The Baierl Automotive team put together this 2019 Volkswagen Passat review to show you how this car rises to the occasion. Read on to learn all about its safety, performance, and infotainment tech.
2019 VW Passat Safety
The road is long and unpredictable. That’s part of the fun, don’t you think? It’s even more exciting when you can rest assured that you and your most precious passengers are safe.
As a midsize sedan, the VW Passat is the perfect size for carting around friends and family. It’s also got just the right amount of safety for them, starting with its durable safety cage. This body construction implements strategically placed crumple zones to absorb collision impacts and drive them away from the passenger cabin.
You may never have to put that safety cage to task thanks to the driver-assisting technology available here. Features like optional Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist use sensors to detect potential hazards and act to prevent them. In the case of the latter, your car can even act autonomously. It’ll apply mild corrective steering to keep you in your designated lane.
VW Passat: Performing to Impress
“Turbo” doesn’t just sound fast. It is fast, and it’s standard on the 2019 Volkswagen Passat to ensure you eke the most muscle possible out of your ride.
With a turbocharger, the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is able to generate as much as 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Step on the accelerator as you’re merging onto the highway or cruising down a straight stretch of backroad, and you’ll feel every last bit of it.
Granted, turbocharging isn’t all about the speed. It’s as much about using your gas wisely, helping to conserve every last drop. In this sedan, it allows you to maintain an EPA-estimated 36 MPG highway and 25 MPG city.1
Infotainment on the Go
Technology is good for far more than just safety. The 2019 VW Passat knows this well, stuffing the cabin with plenty of infotainment options for road-trip entertainment.
Optional VW Car-Net® App-Connect seamlessly integrates your smartphone into your ride for mobile use. If you’re really attached to your favorite apps, you’ll appreciate being able to access them right on your touchscreen display.
As part of the available VW Car-Net®, you can also make use of Guide & Inform. This is a lot like an old-school GPS on steroids. In addition to turn-by-turn directions, you get real-time traffic updates, weather information, sports scores, and more. Get to where you’re going while bypassing traffic jams altogether!
