2020 Volkswagen Passat: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 Volkswagen Passat specs features trims

Known for being polished and roomy, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat builds on the legacy of the previous model. If you enjoyed the ’19 Volkswagen Passat then the 2019 version will make you happy. Despite a complete exterior refresh, the brand-new Passat is in fact very comparable to the previous design. Should the safe, gently refreshed Passat get a spot in your driveway?

Top Performance Highlights

Despite being a new vehicle, the drivetrain of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is virtually unchanged from the 2019 Volkswagen Passat model. While not explicitly stated on vw.com, it appears that the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is back, as is the 6-speed auto. The engine still produces 174 horsepower, but the torque is up 23 lb-ft to 207 lb-ft. It’s anticipated to still reach up to 36 miles per gallon on the freeway, but the added torque means it should seem a little faster off the line.

Design Highlights

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat redesign is a mild one, not revolutionary (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and highly resembles the previous model. The outside styling seems as if the engineers took the previously upscale style and made a more sleek variation. The brand-new LED outside lights and optional 19-inch R-Line wheels offer the Passat a vibe of athletic opulence. When you get into the driver’s seat you’ll notice that the cabin has actually copied the exact same evolutionary styling updates as the exterior. The dash, gauges, and infotainment system all look like the previous model, simply in a sleeker style.

Technology Highlights

Tech remains a huge selling factor for brand-new car and SUV customers and while the 2020 Volkswagen Passat hasn’t gained any kind of new technology features what it does offer is very good. A touchscreen infotainment system featuring voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and optional NAV complete a few of the great tech offerings. On the safety side, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and rear cross-traffic alert are included on all ’20 Passat models. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are optional at an extra expense.
