2020 Volkswagen Passat is one of those cars that survived all changes and storms on the market, almost not nearly wounded and unchanged. The first impression of the car is caused by elegance and simplicity, along with strength and wideness. However, we were able to see in Detroit Auto Show how the manufacturer has changed it to be even more elegant and attractive, retaining all the details that we love the car for.

Likes:

  • The model is modern and very elegant.
  • There is a great cabin with modern and upgraded devices.

Dislikes:

  • The manufacturer could offer a little more engine option.
  • There are no many differences from other models in class.

Exterior

There is obvious need to make 2020 Volkswagen Passat closer to high luxury sedans in the class, like Honda Accord. However, if you look closely, you will see a touch of sportiness like on Toyota Camry. The manufacturer provided the same line of the car, with the almost unchanged shape of the sides and the roof.

The front end has recognizable grille between slightly redesigned lights. The rear end is the truly Germany flat and strongly cubic, with long and elegant trunk area. Thanks to the 17-inch and 18-inch wheels, the model is more sophisticated and attractive.

Interior

Future buyers will be attracted by the simplicity and almost unimaginable simplicity and clarity in the cabin of 2020 Volkswagen Passat. The main change is actually in upgraded technology, mostly in higher trims, while design became even simpler and straighter.

It is amazing how flat and simple new dashboard could be, with details in chrome and an interesting combination of colors. Higher trims obviously get Nappa-leather seats, along with navigation system, driving assistant, keyless entry and many more.

Engine

It is obvious that the manufacturer has not had a hard job when they have chosen the engine for 2020 Volkswagen Passat. They have decided to offer a simple 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine paired with six-speed automatic transmission.

This combination provides 174 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. Although Passat got this engine in 2017, we were able to see a similar option in Mazda 6 and Kia Optima, both larger and not much elegant models as Passat. This vehicle also has the same suspension as on the previous model.

2020 Volkswagen Passat Release Date and Price

2020 Volkswagen Passat comes as one of the greatest additions to sedan class, this time even modernized and more elegant. It is obvious that the manufacturer wanted to provide a new vehicle for the buyers that are used on crossovers and SUVs and prove that not only the largest cars are great cars.

However, there are many other models that came out from VW factories and unfortunately, will not come out in years to come. According to experts, improving Passat showed that Volkswagen Arteon will not be on the market anymore.
