After undergoing a major redesign for the 2012 model year, not much has changed for the 2013 Volkswagen Passat. That being said there are still a few updates worth mentioning. First being the center console in the SE models were update and now contain rear air vents and cup holders. The SEL trim level gains a backup camera.
It's a common dilemma, you want a European sedan, but there is something telling you it's your patriotic duty to buy something built in the good ol' US-of-A. Enter the 2012 Volkswagen Passat - the first vehicle to roll off the new VW assembly line in Chattanooga, TN. The 2012 Passat has been fully redesigned and now includes a roomier interior, an available turbo-diesel engine and a lower price tag!
Some of the standard features you'll find on the base level Passat are 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, full power accessories, steering wheel mounted audio controls and eight-speaker sound system with CD and AUX input. Upgrade to one of the higher trim levels and you'll find alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim, six way power drivers seat, sliding armrest, touchscreen audio interface and Fender audio system.
The 2012 VW Passat offers a wide variety of powertrain choices, all of which come with front-wheel drive. Entry levels models come with a 2.5L inline-five engine, the TDI offers a fuel-efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel, and if power is what you're after look no further than the 3.6L V6 with puts out 280hp and 258 pound-feet of torque.
