"The import car built right here in America." - Motor Trend The 2012 Passat is designed for straight-up midsize hand-to-hand combat. What it gives in head room, the Passat makes up for in leg room. The Passat brings 43 mpg, 2.0 Liter turbo diesel to the table with other high-mileage hybrids, and offers wheel sizes from 16-18 inches. This model has been re-designed for the American market, and it starts at $19,995. The 2012 Passat comes in 3 trims: S, SE and SEL, and is available with a choice of 3 engines, including a diesel.
Riding & Handling One of the trademark features of the 2012 Passat is the suspension, which offers comfortable highway cruising and a ride quality that's nearly as soft as the Toyota Camry's. However, the Passat has better body control. The Passat also has light-effort steering, whether you get the gas or diesel engine. The effortless steering also assists in the effortless way the 2012 Passat handles serpentine roads.
Interior The Passat has gained 4 inches in length, half an inch in width and half an inch in height, but the cabin feels roomier than previous models. Legroom and shoulder room have increased, as well. The Passat houses enough space for 4 tall adults to travel on a long road trip and arrive no worse for wear-even the passengers in the back. The trunk is not effected by the extra room with its competitive 15.9 cubic feet. The 2012 Passat also offers the standard 60/40 split folding backseat, with plenty of room to between backseats and trunk.
Safety An electronic stability system is featured in the 2012 VW Passat, which is now required for all vehicles starting at the 2012 model. The Passat also features antilock brakes, side-impact airbags and active head restraints for the front seats.
One thing is clear, the 2012 edition of the Volkswagen Passat offers ample amounts of features and abilities that will appeal to American buyers, in addition to its competitive price.
