The Passat is Volkswagen’s “American lifestyle” car, designed to combine the best interior, cargo space, technology, driver assistance and powerful but economical engines. It’s made in a state-of-the-art environmentally friendly factory in Chattanooga, Tenn., and looks better than ever for 2016. VW redesigned the front fenders and grille, front and rear bumpers, headlights, taillights and trunklid to give it a more aggressive look. They’ve also redone the interior to upgrade the look and feel of the materials and design. And despite having more new standard equipment than ever before, they’ve maintained the same low price as last year.
For drivers whose preference is the look and feel of performance, Volkswagen has a treat in store for 2016. Available for the first time is the new Passat R-Line. Offering a sportier look and ride, this new trim features unique rocker panels, a stylized front bumper with contrasting black accents, a modified rear diffuser and 19-inch anthracite Salvador aluminum-alloy wheels with 235/40 all-weather performance tires. If that doesn’t satisfy your need for speed, there’s always the Passat V6. With a mighty 280hp VR6 engine, this top-of-the-line model features every amenity available in the lineup.
The standout new feature inside the 2016 Passat is the MIB II infotainment system. With a USB port and big touchscreen display, your smartphone is integrated into the dash. From there you can use VW Car-Net App-Connect to control your apps through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. It takes connectivity to a whole new level. Also new for 2016 are the standard rearview camera on every trim level and available driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, lane departure warning and parking steering assistant.
The 2016 Passat offers tremendous performance and value for any family. We can introduce you to your new Passat at Hall Volkswagen, Brookfield WI.
