2020 Volkswagen Passat: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 Volkswagen Passat trim comparison specs features

Known for being fine-tuned and large, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat builds on the tradition of the previous model. If you enjoyed the brand-new Volkswagen Passat then the all-new design will make you delighted. Even with a full exterior refresh, the new Passat is in fact really similar to the outgoing model. Should the safe, gently revitalized Passat get a spot in your driveway?


In spite of being a new vehicle, the drivetrain of the ’20 Passat is nearly unmodified from the 2019 Volkswagen Passat design. While not explicitly pointed out on vw.com, it appears that the turbo 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is back, as is the 6-speed auto. The engine still produces 174 horsepower, however the torque is up 23 lb-ft to 207 lb-ft. It’s anticipated to still get up to 36 miles per gallon on the freeway, yet the additional torque suggests it will probably feel a little quicker off the line.

Top Design Highlights

The 2020 Passat redesign is evolutionary, not wild (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and looks like the previous design. The outside styling seems as if the engineers took the previously high end design and made a more polished version. The new LED exterior lights and optional 19-inch R-Line wheels provide the Passat an aura of sporty luxury. When you slip into the driver’s seat you’ll discover that the interior has followed the same evolutionary design updates as the outside. The dashboard, gauges, and infotainment system all resemble the previous model, just in a sleeker design.

Top Technology Highlights

Tech remains a large selling factor for brand-new car and SUV buyers and while the new Passat hasn’t gained any type of new tech options what it does offer is very good. A touchscreen infotainment system featuring voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and optional NAV round out several of the cool technology offerings. On the safety and security side, auto emergency stopping, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and back cross-traffic alert are part on all all-new Passat models. Adaptive cruise and lane-keeping assist are optional at an added cost.

Ethical dealership! Salesman, Nick, was a no nonsense kind of guy. Jade, in finance, was informative, very personable, and never pushy! Best experience we’ve ever had buying a car...EVER!
