The 2014 Passat is built with powerful German engineering from the ground up. That means when you get behind the wheel you will feel the amazing handling and power. Volkswagen tries harder everyday to be the very best it can be, and thinks that everyone out there deserves a better car. The Passat is just the start of the Volkswagen’s many groundbreaking vehicles. The Passat has twelve different model choices and three different engines.

On any of the above models, the laser seam welding on the exterior of the car will blow you away. This process helps give a Jetta a super-solid, stable road feel and can even reduce interior noise. The Passat also helps you see with automatic headlights that will turn on night or day when it thinks you need the extra light. Under those are the corner-illuminating fog lights, that when you turn corners they will turn with you and automatically turn on.

Feel the comfort behind the wheel with leather seating with Dinamica inserts, which are good in hot or cold temperatures. That comfort extends to all passengers with heated front seats with three degrees of warmth and bolstered for extra cushioning around the corners to help keep the comfort going for as long a drive as you may have. For the back seat passengers the Passat offers the most rear legroom in its class. To aid you on those long car rides, the Jetta is built with outstanding technology. It starts with Volkswagen Car-Net, which will link your Smartphone and your Jetta. This will allow you to do things like getting restaurant locations, unlock your car doors, and get information about your car right to your phone. You will also be able to use your car with the Bluetooth with audio streaming to make calls, listen to your own music, or answer calls all with the sound of your voice. For all the music lovers out there, Volkswagen is now the exclusive dealer to carry Fender audio systems. You will have 400 watts and nine speakers, including a subwoofer, of clear loud music of your choice. At the top of the center stack you will find the touch screen navigation that can give you turn-by-turn directions and a 3D bird’s-eye view to help you know where you are going.

The three engine choices include; new 1.8L TSI, 3.6L V6, and the 2.0L TDI clean Diesel engine. Unlike some midsize sedans that don’t even offer a V6, the Passat has an available 3.6L, 280-hp engine that will make a lasting impression. It’s paired with the DSG automatic transmission, which allows for seamless acceleration and imperceptibly fast gear changes.

Like I said earlier, the Passat comes in many different model choices, and the prices vary. For the S series, the price is anywhere from $20,000 to $31,000, and for the V6’s it can be anywhere close to $30,000 to $34,000.
