2018 Volkswagen Passat GT
Have you ever dreamed of a Passat with the swagger of a GTI?
The Passat is already a spacious, comfortable, safe, and economical midsized sedan. Our customers felt it lacked a bit of swagger. What they wanted was a sports sedan that has the pedigree of a sporty Volkswagen with the power of the V6.
Volkswagen listened. They have now created exactly what they asked for – the 2018 Passat GT.
For this limited run sedan, Volkswagen enhanced the Passat with 20 enhancements all around, the most noticeable is the lowered suspension and 19-inch Tornado wheels on higher performance tires and red accents – including the brake calipers. LED lighting was added, with design cues from the R-Design model, along with an exclusive honeycomb grille and red accents.
The interior was given the sporty treatment, as well. Black leatherette seating surfaces with gray inserts and contrast stitching. Climatronic dual-zone climate control, eight-way power seats, and the Composition Media infotainment center are among the standard features you get in the Passat GT.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, at no cost. So does Car-Net. Other German manufacturers want to charge you a monthly subscription fee, Volkswagen does not.
Underneath the hood is the Passat’s 3.6-liter V6. With 280 horsepower on tap, it will challenge its high-powered and sporty rivals for dominance. If you are still thinking about the link between the Passat GT and the GTI – remember, the latter had a VR6 underneath its hood not too long ago.
All of this starts at just $29,090 for a limited run of Passat GTs. It's the German Sports Sedan for everyone, not just those in the top tax bracket!
