What's New for the 2018 Volkswagen Passat?

The 2018 VW Passat is the newest Volkswagen vehicle to hit the open market and their newest Passat model for the 2018 year. The Passat is a sedan that has been around for six years and maintained the same look all this time, meaning it's essentially a timeless vehicle. The new model for this year has new features, including an updated four-cylinder engine with a better fuel efficiency rating and strength.

Trims & Features

The 2018 Passat comes with new trim levels and with those come their own set of special features and amenities. The Passat has six different trim levels: the S, R-Line, SE, SE with technology, GT and SEL Premium. The S trim is the basic standard model and comes with basic features like a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, six-speed automatic transmission, a rearview camera and 16-inch alloy wheels. The R-Line model is a bit upgraded and comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, access to satellite radio and the Car-Net smartphone integration system with Apple CarPlay. The SE line comes with many of the R-Line's own features but also adds in 17-inch wheels, adaptive cruise control, a sunroof and rear air vents. The SE Technology special trim is an optional package that comes with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, automatic windshield wipers, front and rear parking sensors and an upgraded Car-Net system. The GT trim is a combination of the R-Line and SE trim levels and has 19-inch wheels, sport-tuned suspension and a 3.6-liter V6 engine. The SEL Premium is the most advanced version and has features such as 18-inch wheel, power-folding mirrors, memory settings for the driver's seat, a Fender audio system and a lane departure warning system.
