The base S trim adds standard features including automatic headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, allow wheels, a USB port, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, cloth upholstery, a 5.0-inch touchscreen, and more. The R-line features unique bumpers, 19-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, blind-spot warning, power driver’s seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and leatherette upholstery. The SE trim adds a 6.3-inch touchscreen, sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, and keyless entry/start.

SEL Premium models are loaded with LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, 18-inch allow wheels, a Fender premium audio system, leather upholstery, navigation and heated rear seats.


The 2018 Volkswagen Passat has earned a 5 star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. Although the IIHS has yet to test the 2018 model, the 2017 Passat scored fairly on all crash tests except for headlights test. In the front crash prevention test, the 2017 model earned an Advanced rating after it brilliantly avoided a 12-mph collision without reducing the speed at all in a 25 mpg test. As a result, it was able to get the Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS.

Standard on all 2018 Passats are automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning - two essential features that keep you on the safe side in the car. High trim levels can be obtained with blind-spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, parking assist, and lane keep assist.


The amazing exterior of the 2018 Volkswagen Passat warms hearts with its simplicity and no-frills styling. The face of sedan is adorned with a sharp looking LED headlamp and fog lamps with the bold familiar VW grille. The bumper bears chrome inserts which adds to the charm and feel, and the lower part of the bumper displays a slight tinge of sportiness. The side profile is rather plain, with a thick crease running across the waistline, while the C-pillar looks fairly large.

The allow wheels looks okay unlike some of the newer offering from the BAG group that are tad boring. The rear is typical VW fare, with a bulky bumper and boot-lid showcasing the car’s rather generous dimensions. The design of the Passat may not have you swoon over it, but it is the most suitable for those who prefer a minimalistic approach.


The Passat’s interior offers more space and has user-friendly center stack controls. Handling is respectable for its size but it falls slightly short of sportier entries such as Mazda6. On the road, there’s minimal road and wind noise, turning the Passat’s cabin into a nice place.
