Performance Features and Specs
When it comes to Passat, it’s difficult to know where to begin, so we’ll just lay it out for you:
- Engine Power – On the one hand, you can opt for a 1.8L turbo engine, which promises a solid 170 hp while also giving you 184 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the car can be outfitted with a 3.6L V6 engine that generates up to 280 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque on premium fuel.
- Turbocharged Engines – The TSI turbo technology behind the four-cylinder engine makes it possible for the Passat to channel cooled air directly into the engine for increased performance while remaining efficient.
- Track-Inspired Paddle Shifters – The Passat is also available with track-inspired paddle shifters, which, from their position next to the wheel, make it possible for you to shift without even having to move your hands. You get to stay in control of the engine and keep a tight grip on the wheel, a win-win.
- Transmission – Likewise, with DSG transmission, the Passat ensures speedy acceleration rates and efficient gear shifts when you feel like shifting out of performance mode or are cruising on your commute.
