The Passat is Volkswagen's executive midsize entry that offers premium build and feel in all aspects of the vehicle. As proof, a hotel chain in the Philippines recently bought a fleet of Passats to transport VIPs.
Its minimalist design starts with the sleek fascia that blends well with the subtle slope on the fender and continues with a light scoop by the side skirt. 5 people can comfortable fit inside and enjoy the touchscreen infotainment system. A comfortable ride is guaranteed by the ErgoComfort seats, while 6 airbags and Electronic Stabilisation Program ensure that you are safe whenever you ride the Passat.
The Business Variant has exclusive features such as a panoramic sunroof, Discover Pro touchscreen interface with voice control, rear assist camera, and park distance control.
The Volkswagen Passat runs on a 2.0L, 220 hp engine with 350 Nm of torque which is then coupled to a 6-speed double clutch automatic transmission. An Adapative Chassis Control lets you adjust the running gear for finer tuning, or select a Driver Profile from Sporty, Comfort, and Normal.

Volkswagen has a knack for creating some of the most smile-inducing car commercials. One of which is this cool 45-second ad showing their clever take on the hand-drawn music video of the iconic ‘80s song called “Take On Me” by the band A-Ha.
