2020 Volkswagen Passat: Features, Specs & Trims

2020 Volkswagen Passat specs features trims

Known for being fine-tuned and roomy, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat improves on the legacy of the previous version. If you enjoyed the ’19 Volkswagen Passat then the brand-new model will make you happy. Even with a full exterior refresh, the ’20 Passat is really extremely comparable to the previous version. Should the safe, slightly revitalized Passat get an area in your driveway?

Performance Highlights

Regardless of being a new automobile, the drivetrain of the new Volkswagen Passat is nearly the same from the 2019 Volkswagen Passat model. While not explicitly stated on vw.com, it looks as if the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder is back, as is the 6-speed automatic. The engine still generates 174hp, however the torque is up 23 lb-ft to 207 lb-ft. It’s anticipated to still reach up to 36 miles per gallon on the freeway, however the extra torque means it ought to seem a little quicker off the line.


The ’20 Volkswagen Passat redesign is evolutionary, not revolutionary (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and resembles the outgoing model. The exterior styling looks as if the designers took the previously upscale design and made an even more refined version. The new LED outside lighting and available 19-inch R-Line wheels provide the Passat an aura of athletic luxury. When you get into the driver’s seat you’ll discover that the interior cabin has actually followed the very same evolutionary styling updates as the outside. The dashboard, gauges, and infotainment system all look like the previous version, simply in a sleeker style.

Top Tech Highlights

Tech continues to be a huge marketing factor for new automobile buyers and while the 2020 Passat hasn’t gained any brand-new tech features what it does offer is impressive. A touchscreen infotainment system featuring voice control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and available navigation complete some of the great technology offerings. On the safety side, automated emergency stopping, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and rear cross-traffic alert are included on all ’20 Passat models. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are optional at an extra expense.
