A hallmark quality of Volkswagen is that they produce affordable cars with upscale designs, and a VW model that perfectly exemplifies this is the Volkswagen Passat. Whether you’re a car shopper from San Juan Capistrano, Santa Ana, Huntington Beach, Anaheim or anywhere else in Orange County, we're confident you'll be very impressed with the 2017 Volkswagen Passat!
The stylish and refined design of the 2017 Passat really grabs your attention. Slimmer headlights, a more fully chromed four-bar grille and the muscular hood all work together to give the Passat a wider, more planted stance from the front. Standard chrome window surrounds and trim on the doors add to the premium nature of the design, as do available LED headlights and taillights. Available on every trim level, the LEDs help provide better lighting performance with reduced energy consumption. At the rear, the 2017 Passat has a premium European-style flush rear license plate area and a new chrome strip on the trunk connects the trunk lid to the taillights, making the rear lights appear lower, which enhances the grounded appearance.

The 2017 Passat delivers an impressive driving experience, especially with its robust engine choices. It's available in a 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four cylinder and a 3.6-liter VR6 engine, which delivers a magnificent 280 horsepower — one of the highest outputs in the midsize sedan class. In addition, the 2017 Passat 1.8T has a fuel-sipping EPA estimated highway gas mileage of 34 mpg with the automatic transmission. 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. At the rear, there’s a sophisticated four-link independent layout with telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar. The 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 36.4-foot turning radius and just three turns from lock-to-lock.
The Passat R-Line model steps up for 2017 with many new features, including the Composition Media touchscreen radio that has USB connectivity, voice control, SiriusXM Satellite Radio trial and VW Car-Net App-Connect technology, as well as Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, a power driver seat, V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces and heatable front seats. Also, the SE trim adds KESSY keyless access with push-button start and has an available Lighting Package that adds foglights to the R-Line’s setup. The SE with Technology model, available with both the 1.8T engine and the VR6, adds remote start, Park Distance Control, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and LED headlamps and taillights.
