Power & Performance
The 2019 VW Passat comes equipped with a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that’s both turbocharged and intercooled. This helps the vehicle during peak performance by ensuring that the engine remains cool despite the performance pushing further. The engine can produce 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
The engine comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport Mode, which gives the driver more control over the performance of their vehicle. The engine also includes an 18.5-gallon fuel tank, which is larger than most fuel tanks in the sedan class.
Design and Style
The 2019 VW Passat was designed with families and convenience in mind. The exterior looks sleek and stylish without compromising durability, all thanks to the safety cage. The rigid safety cage is made up of front and rear crumple zones which absorb crash energy and deflect it from the passengers inside.
The available LED headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights aren’t just trendy, but they also provide excellent visibility for driving at night or in the dark. The available Hands-Free Easy Open trunk makes loading and unloading cargo easy—you can simply open your trunk with a swipe of your foot.
The available V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces are comfortable and easy to clean while still managing to look modern and chic. The 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat allows you to customize your seating position to achieve your ultimate seating comfort for the trip. Everyone is able to be comfortable in the interior cabin thanks to the available Climatronic® dual-zone automatic climate control which allows passengers to choose their ideal temperature.

This feature assists you while you change lanes by monitoring cars as they approach your blind spot and alerting you of them with visual and audio warnings.
- Available Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist)
This system helps you stay in the center of your lane through gentle steering correction and warning alerts if it senses you drifting.
- Available Forward Collision Warning and Front Assist
Radar sensors monitor traffic and alert you when it senses a potential frontal collision. It also helps with braking pressure to help avoid collisions or decrease impact.
- Rear Traffic Alert
This feature helps you back up your car and alerts you when it senses a vehicle approaching you from behind.
The 2019 Volkswagen Passat includes several braking systems and components to provide more control in emergency braking situations. These features include the Electronic Stability Control to reduce a loss of traction, as well as Engine Brake Assist, which helps provide full braking power during an emergency situation.
