We think the Volkswagen Passat is a great vehicle for all you commuters and weekend warriors. So, we've gone ahead and written this dedicated mini review that we hope our friends in Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Norman, OK, will read and consider!

Volkswagen Passat: Performance & MPG

The 2021 VW Passat comes standard with a powerful 2.0-liter TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with intercooler and direct fuel injection. It also comes equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode.

This powerful engine configuration allows you to achieve outputs of 174 horsepower with an additional 206 lb-ft of torque. These impressive numbers allow the VW Passat to navigate crowded highways and busy city streets, which we'll take a closer look at in the next section.

Thanks to the 2.0-liter TSI® configured engine, the fuel economy is pretty great. According to EPA-estimated numbers, this vehicle can achieve 24 city/36 highway MPG, which makes it superb for those with a heavy daily commute or a need to navigate busy Monday mornings downtown.1

Volkswagen Passat: Interior Space & Cargo

Seating is an important feature when you're looking for a new vehicle, whether it be for family members or carpooling with the work team. Luckily, the VW Passat comfortably seats five passengers. Overall, it measures out to have 102.2 cubic feet of passenger volume, ensuring everyone has a great ride.

When it comes to comfortable space for the front-seat riders, the measurements are quite clear:

  • Passenger Front Volume: 53.5 cubic feet
  • Front Shoulder Room: 56.9 inches
  • Front Legroom: 42.4 inches

For the rear passengers, the measurements are:

  • Passenger Rear Volume: 48.8 cubic feet
  • Rear Shoulder Room: 57 inches
  • Rear Legroom: 39.1 inches

As you can see, everyone has enough room to move about the interior cabin, always remaining comfortable.

As for the cargo volume measurement, it tops out at 15.9 cubic feet, which is generous and will let you take along what you need.

Volkswagen Passat: Safety Technologies

The VW Passat has a number of built-in technologies-both active and passive-that are designed to help keep you safe on the road.

First, we'll look at some of the active features the vehicle offers. For example, it comes equipped with Electronic Stability Control, Anti-Slip Regulation, Electronic Differential Lock, and Engine Brake Assist. While there are other features, that's enough to give an idea of the scope of the active safety design at work.

Now, some passive features include an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System; Side Curtain Protection® head airbags, front and rear; and front and rear crumple zones to help absorb crash energy.
