The Volkswagen Passat is not a sedan known for sportiness. It's very spacious, and it comes in a plain and simple wrapper. That's why it was a bit of surprise when Volkswagen showed a concept for a "GT" version that looked like a big GTI, complete with black grille and red highlights, lower ride height and big wheels. It was even more surprising that the car, which VW said was developed by folks at the company's Tennessee facility playing around with ideas for what a Passat could be, became a production vehicle shown at this year's Detroit Auto Show. Something has concerned us, though, and that's the fact the Passat GT's only performance upgrades are retuned suspension and a louder exhaust. So despite the GTI looks, it seemed to lack the full complement of GTI-style upgrades. To find out if the Passat GT has any of the sporting chops of its legendary sibling, we took one for a spin in southeast Michigan. Engine and transmission Keen readers will notice that the engine and transmission … [Read more...] about 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT First Drive Review
It's ironic that car manufacturers are offering outstanding family sedans just as buyers are gravitating toward SUVs.Consider the 2018 Passat one of those sedans.This new Passat is responsive, comfortable and fuel-efficient. Its attractive styling should wear well for years to come. Despite this, Volkswagen’s two SUVs, the new Atlas and Tiguan, have outsold the Passat so far this year.Starting this year, most Passat models will be powered by a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which replaces a 1.8-liter turbo four. The bumper-to-bumper warranty protection has been bolstered to six-years or 72,000 miles, and there is a new GT trim for V6 models that includes a sport suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels.For this review, Volkswagen made a 2018 Passat SEL Premium model, with the new 2.0-liter engine, available for a week.Obviously, the new engine commandeered much of our attention and the verdict is that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan – “Midsize front-wheel-drive sport sedan” has always been something of an oxymoron, especially among us No Boring Cars types. Nevertheless, a few exceptions prove the rule, including our 2018 All-Star Honda Accord Sport, most Mazda6 models of the past few generations, the Ford Fusion Sport and of course, the Volkswagen Passat. Even the old Toyota Camry SE proved to be above the rolling appliance fray not so many years ago. We once might have called them “poor-man BMWs,” though that description has lost some of its meaning more recently.Now we’re in a new era for all cars. Cars, that is—not sport/utilities or crossover/utilities or any of those tallish station wagons that modern families think they need just to survive a daily commute. Even the most rudimentary of FWD midsize sedans handles and drives like a midengine sports car next to SUVs that are 500 to 1,500 pounds heavier and have a center of gravity eight-inches to a … [Read more...] about First Drive: 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT V6
