Volkswagen Golf vs. Volkswagen Passat




Both the Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Passat are award-winning vehicle; the Volkswagen Golf made last year’s “10 Best Cars” from Car and Driver, and the Volkswagen Passat was named last year’s “Best Midsize Sedan” from Cars.com. So, which one is right for you? With fuel economy that exceeds average and advanced touchscreen entertainment, both make great choices. Find out which one fits your lifestyle before taking one or both on a test drive at Commonwealth Volkswagen in Lawrence!


Both vehicles utilize turbocharged engines, but which one suits your driving style better? The Golf lends itself better to long commutes, while the Passat makes more robust power available.

  • Volkswagen Golf: A 1.8L TSI engine produces 170 hp while earning an EPA-estimated 36 mpg/highway and 25 mpg/city. The automatic transmission of the VW Golf is more versatile with the available Tiptronic with Sport Mode.
  • Volkswagen Passat: The same engine comes standard on the new Passat, and earns an EPA-estimated 34 mpg/highway and 23 mpg/city. You can also upgrade to a 3.6L V6 engine that generates 280 hp.


The new Golf may appeal to younger drivers or adventurers, due to more cargo space than passenger volume. Meanwhile, the Passat offers a more spacious cabin for small families to take advantage of. Both vehicles offer a Composition Media touchscreen display, Bluetooth technology, and European style.

  • Volkswagen Golf: The cabin offers 93.5 cubic feet of passenger space, and up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo room with seats folded.
  • Volkswagen Passat: There’s a little more breathing room inside the Volkswagen Passat interior with 102 cubic feet of passenger space. The trunk gives you 15.9 cubic feet.
