The Volkswagen Passat comes standard with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. If you want a bit more power, opt for the available 3.6L V6, with 280 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

With the standard engine, you get a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. This gets you from 0-60 MPH and back down again very smoothly. Plus, paddle shifters are available, allowing you to quickly shift without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

Furthermore, not only does the car give you a good amount of power, but it’s quite fuel-efficient, too. With an EPA-estimated 25 city/36 highway MPG,* you can spend a long time on the road before needing to stop and refuel.
