2020 Volkswagen Passat: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 Volkswagen Passat specs features trims

Known for being refined and spacious, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat improves on the legacy of the previous design. If you enjoyed the 2019 Volkswagen Passat then the new model will make you delighted. Despite a full outside refresh, the ’20 Passat is actually really similar to the outgoing design. Should the safe, gently revitalized Passat earn an area in your driveway?


Despite being a new automobile, the drivetrain of the new Volkswagen Passat is nearly unchanged from the 2019 Volkswagen Passat design. While not specifically discussed on vw.com, it appears that the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder is back, as is the 6-speed auto. The engine still produces 174hp, yet the torque is up 23 lb-ft to 207 lb-ft. It’s anticipated to still reach up to 36mpg on the freeway, but the added torque indicates it ought to seem a little quicker off the line.


The 2020 Passat redesign is a mild one, not revolutionary (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and highly resembles the outgoing model. The exterior styling seems as if the designers took the previously high end style and made an even more refined version. The brand-new LED outside illumination and optional 19-inch R-Line wheels give the Passat a feel of sporty opulence. When you slip into the driver’s seat you’ll notice that the interior cabin has copied the same evolutionary design updates as the outside. The dash, gauges, and infotainment system all resemble the previous design, just in a sleeker design.

Top Technology Highlights

Tech continues to be a big selling point for brand-new car buyers and while the brand-new Volkswagen Passat hasn’t obtained any kind of new tech features what it does offer is very good. A touchscreen infotainment system including voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and optional NAV round out some of the amazing technology offerings. On the safety and security side, automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and back cross-traffic alert are parts on all all-new Volkswagen Passat models. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are optional at an additional expense.

My car was done when they said it would be. My service advisor, William McAuliff really knew a lot about my vehicle, 2003 Eurovan Weekender. It's running great.
