The Passat sedan offers a compelling list of equipment and performance in a package that provides more interior space than the diminutive Jetta. A 200hp 4-cylinder turbo and six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The Passat is a solid car that deserves a hard look for shoppers of other premium mid-sized sedans. The Passat 2.0T model offers a lot of car for a very small differential in price over reasonably-equipped Jettas. This means the Passat bears careful inspection by prospective buyers of the new Jetta.

What Changed:

The 6-speed automatic is replaced by a 6-speed DSG transmission. A new leather-wrapped steering wheel is standard.
