2014 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT: Volkswagen's 2013 Passat midsize four-door sedan is available in S, SE and SEL trim levels, with a total of 16 equipment packages to personalize to perfection. All models are front-wheel drive, and buyers have their pick from the three engine/three transmission medley. The Passat 2.5 liter five-cylinder delivers 170 horsepower and comes with a five-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission. For high-performance driving, the 3.6L V-6 creates 280hp and is available exclusively with the six-speed automatic. For the best mileage, the 2.0L turbo-diesel four cylinder generates 140hp, and with the six-speed manual or automatic delivers up to 43 mpg highway. Passat is loaded with standard features counting automatic dual-zone climate control and Bluetooth technology. There is no shortage of entertainment system options either, especially with the latest addition of the Fender Premium audio system. With best-in-class rear legroom, the Passat's cabin seats five-passengers and offers 15.9 cu. ft. of luggage room in the trunk. For 2013, Passat SE and SEL models receive a new center console that incorporates rear air vents, a new cupholder design, and a revised front stowage area that has a hinged cover. All SEL trim models now have a rearview backup camera. Note, the Passat is designed in Germany and built in Chattanooga, Tenn.
