2020 Volkswagen Passat: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 Volkswagen Passat specs features trims

Recognized for being refined and large, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat builds on the tradition of the previous design. If you liked the brand-new Volkswagen Passat then the ’19 version will make you thrilled. Despite having a complete exterior refresh, the 2020 Passat is in fact extremely similar to the previous version. Should the conservative, mildly revitalized Passat get a place in your driveway?

Performance Highlights

Regardless of being a new car, the drivetrain of the 2020 Passat is almost the same from the 2019 model. While not explicitly discussed on vw.com, it looks as if the turbo 2.0L 4-cylinder is back, as is the 6-speed automatic. The engine still produces 174 horsepower, but the torque is up 23 lb-ft to 207 lb-ft. It’s expected to still get up to 36 miles per gallon on the highway, however the additional torque means it will probably seem a little faster off the line.

Design Highlights

The new Volkswagen Passat redesign is evolutionary, not wild (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and looks like the outgoing version. The outside styling seems as if the engineers took the previously high end design and made an even more polished variation. The brand-new LED outside illumination and available 19-inch R-Line wheels give the Passat an aura of sporty opulence. When you slip into the driver’s seat you’ll discover that the interior has copied the very same evolutionary styling updates as the outside. The dash, gauges, and infotainment system all resemble the previous design, simply in a sleeker style.

Top Tech Highlights

Technology remains a large selling factor for brand-new vehicle buyers and while the all-new Passat hasn’t obtained any new technology options what it does provide is impressive. A touchscreen infotainment system featuring voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and optional navigation complete some of the cool tech offerings. On the safety side, automated emergency stopping, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and rear cross-traffic alert are included on all 2020 Volkswagen Passat models. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are optional at an extra cost.

I am now leasing a Jetta from Umansky. Rob and his manager Scott helped me with everything I asked and more. Shopped around at a few dealerships and they were easily the best. Thet even got me into a new vehicle cheaper than the used I was looking at.

Great experience overall, Mike was a pleasure to do business with. He is from Ukraine so after you buy a car from him he gifts you chocolates from his homeland. It is a simple touch that meant a lot to us after we signed the deal. The sales manager was very eager to sell so we got a great deal as well. Highly recommend this dealership and Mike in particular.
