2017 Volkswagen Passat R-Line Dare to Compare Challenge
The 2017 Volkswagen Passat, with its impressive driving characteristics, comfortable and refined interior and advanced technology and safety features, is an outstanding choice for a midsize sedan. See how the Passat R-Line favorably stacks up the competition in the Dare to Compare Challenge.
2017 Passat R-Line vs Accord Sport vs Camry SE vs Fusion SE
As you can see from the above chart, even though the Passat R-Line is similarly priced as the Accord Sport, Camry SE and Fusion SE, it has the clear advantage with its wide array of standard features. This includes driver assistance technology like Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert with Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. The Passat R-Line also comes standard with dual-zone climate control, 19″ alloy wheels, satellite radio and floor mats. Also, the Passat R-Line offers available LED headlights, which is not available with the other three models.
2017 Passat R-Line Performance and Engine Specs
Another advantage of the Passat R-Line is its impressive performance. It comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four cylinder engine, which delivers an excellent balance of power and efficiency, generating 170 horsepower and a highway fuel economy of 34 mpg. Giving the Passat dynamic handling and precise steering is a front suspension that features damper struts with robust lower control arms, coil springs and an anti-roll bar. The Passat R-Line’s electro-mechanical power steering is weighted to provide a balance between precision at highway speeds and lower steering weight at parking speeds. Also, swinging into a tight parking spot is easy, thanks to the Passat’s R-Line’s 36.4-foot turning radius and just three turns from lock-to-lock.
