More Information

Xenon lamps do not use in fog lights: constantly changing the configuration of the discharge violates the strictly calculated geometry of the light beam, and the headlight does not perform its direct function. For fog lights it is better to use only LED bulbs.

Volkswagen Passat Generations

Volkswagen Passat 29 Generation (2021)

In 2021, Volkswagen showed off the new Passat, which retains the foundation of the old Passat instead of switching to the new modular platform that underlies all other new Volkswagen, which adds a dose of modern style and features to nearly full-size comfort, interior space, and trunk space at a mid-priced price.

Volkswagen Passat 28 Generation (2020)

While some rivals are doubling down on mid-size sedans and others are abandoning the shrinking market, Volkswagen hedged its bet with a cost-conscious freshening of the 2020 Passat that keeps its trademark comfort and room and adds selective improvements that keep the Passat in the game if no longer a leader.

Volkswagen Passat 27 Generation (2019)

In 2019 there are now just two trim levels — a base Wolfsburg Edition and an SE R-Line — and both are powered by the turbo four-cylinder engine. The previously available V-6 is no longer offered. Wolfsburg Edition upgrades over last year’s base S trim include heated side mirrors, 17-inch aluminum wheels, a 6.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, keyless access with push-button start, simulated leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Volkswagen Passat 26 Generation (2018)

For 2018 it gets a new base engine and a sporty Passat GT trim level.

Volkswagen Passat 25 Generation (2017)

Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking is now standard. The R-Line trim level adds a touch-screen stereo with USB connectivity and satellite radio, a blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, a power driver’s seat, simulated leather upholstery, and heated front seats.

Volkswagen Passat 24 Generation (2016)

Multimedia system updates, a slew of new advanced safety features and lower fuel costs make the refreshed 2016 Volkswagen Passat much more attractive, even if its styling changes go largely unnoticed.

Volkswagen Passat 23 Generation (2015)

The 2015 Volkswagen Passat remains an attractive family sedan, offering above-average space, mileage, handling, and quality. The Passat comes with three engines to choose from: a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in 1.8T models; a 3.6-liter V-6 in 3.6L models; and a clean diesel, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in TDI models.

Volkswagen Passat 22 Generation (2014)

For 2014, the Volkswagen Passat gets a 170-horsepower, turbocharged gas 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, replacing the 2.5-liter five-cylinder. The SE and higher trim levels now get a backup camera, and the SE also comes with two-tone seats. The Sport trim is new to the Passat lineup.

Volkswagen Passat 21 Generation (2013)

The Passat for 2013 has a few minor changes, namely a new center console with rear air vents in the SE and higher trims, and a backup camera in the SEL.

Volkswagen Passat 20 Generation (2012)

The redesigned 2012 Passat combines the driving dynamics and interior quality that VW fans expect with the roominess, comfort, and value that the wider public demands.

Volkswagen Passat 19 Generation (2010)

Volkswagen’s Direct Shift Gearbox, six-speed dual-clutch transmission with the automatic manual-shift operation, replaces a conventional six-speed automatic as the lone transmission choice. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is a new design, Bluetooth is standard and there’s an optional touch-screen radio.

Volkswagen Passat 18 Generation (2009)

The all-wheel-drive option and the V-6 engine option have been dropped. Heated seats and fog lights are standard, as are automatic headlights. The Passat is now available in only one trim level: Komfort.

Volkswagen Passat 17 Generation (2008)

For 2008, the Passat’s trim levels have been overhauled; it’s now available in Turbo, Komfort, Lux, and VR6. Newly standard features include manual sunshades for the rear side windows, a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather steering wheel and shift knob.

Volkswagen Passat 16 Generation (2007)

The upgraded station wagon entered the market in 2007. One of its most noticeable features is the deep V-shaped front grille, which divides the bumper in half. While not as attractive as Audi’s full-frame grille, it is quite distinctive when done in chrome.

Volkswagen Passat 15 Generation (2006)

A new medallion-shaped grille is installed on the 2006 Passat, and, in Volkswagen’s words, the car’s silhouette parallels “in a contemporary way to its trendsetting predecessor.” The Passat’s brakes have a wiping feature that removes moisture on the discs. A sport suspension and Volkswagen’s Adaptive Front Lighting System are optional.

Volkswagen Passat 14 Generation (2005)

For 2005, Volkswagen has dropped the costly Passat W8 model. Leatherette seating surfaces replace cloth in the GL and GLS models, and the GLS gets heated front seats as standard equipment.

Volkswagen Passat 13 Generation (2004)

For the 2004 model year, the upscale GLX edition adds the Electronic Stability Program along with a telematics system. A Monsoon stereo and a HomeLink universal garage-door opener become standard on the midlevel GLS. Late in the 2004 model year, a new 2.0-liter TDI (diesel) engine that produces 134 hp and 247 pounds-feet of torque became available, but only in 45 states.

Volkswagen Passat 12 Generation (2003)

For 2003, Volkswagen’s 170-horsepower, the turbocharged 1.8-liter engine became standard in the GL trim level. An Electronic Stability Program became optional in GL, GLS 1.8T (turbo), and GLX models.

Volkswagen Passat 11 Generation (2002)

Except for the addition of a premium CD/cassette stereo and an escape handle in the trunk, changes are few for the 2002 model year.

Volkswagen Passat 11 Generation (2001)

Curtain-type airbags that deploy from above the side windows to protect the heads of passengers inside collisions will become standard on the mid-size Passat later in the 2001 model year. Antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats currently are standard equipment.

Volkswagen Passat 11 Generation (2000)

Passat was redesigned two years ago and changes for this year are minor. Among the additions is the Monsoon audio system, an eight-channel, eight-speaker setup with 200 watts of power. The Monsoon System can be supplemented by a trunk-mounted, six-disc CD changer. A dealer-installed, in-dash CD player is a new option.
