Seaside Car Dealers Review
The Volkswagen Passat Trim Levels
Buyers looking for a midsize sedan that provides a roomy interior, a smooth and quiet ride, and lots of cargo space should take a good look at the 2019 Volkswagen Passat. Customers of the car dealer near Seaside report they also like the Passat’s lively turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant. Volkswagen’s impressive People First transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty covers the Passat for 6 years/72,000 miles. If you’re looking for an ostentatious car, the Passat may not be for you, but everyone else will enjoy driving the Passat around town and on weekend trips.
The 2019 Volkswagen Passat is offered in two trim levels: Wolfsburg Edition and SE R-Line. Both models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, joined to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Passat’s automatic gearbox is equipped with Tiptronic and Sport modes. Fuel economy is estimated by the EPA at 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway.*
We’ll take a look at the Passat’s two trim levels and see what each one offers buyers at dealers like the Seaside car dealerships.
