European refinement is a defining characteristic of the 2014 Volkswagen Passat, and it’s evident in its poised ride quality and upmarket cabin. The Passat also provides a roomy rear seat and an enormous trunk.
The 2014 Volkswagen Passat is a midsize sedan that seats five passengers, and it’s offered with gas-only and diesel (TDI) powertrains. It’s sold in four main trims: S, Wolfsburg, SE, Sport and SEL. All models are front-wheel drive.
The Passat’s standard turbo engine is new for 2014, as is the Sport trim. Also, Volkswagen adds its Car-Net telematics to the Passat’s options lineup. This feature includes automatic crash notification, stolen-vehicle location and boundary and speed alerts.
Volkswagen’s Passat features sheet metal that bears a sculpted, sophisticated appearance. The car’s hood and flanks feature long, flowing lines, and its front fascia presents horizontal design elements. The overall look is understated and distinctly Germanic.
Base models come with 16-inch wheels and automatic headlights. The range of available features includes 17- or 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, heated windshield-washer nozzles, a sunroof and a rear spoiler.
This Volkswagen sedan’s horizontal design details carry over into the cabin, where they’re emphasized by a full-length accent strip across the dashboard and rectangular climate vents. The interior has a premium look and feel, and high-quality materials are used all throughout. Both rows provide spacious accommodations, and the Passat offers one of the roomiest rear seats in its segment. This Volkswagen sedan also has a large trunk, and it provides 15.9 cubic feet of cargo space.
Standard amenities include cloth upholstery, air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, power windows and door locks and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. Among the notable options for the Passat are heated power-adjustable front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather or simulated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Passat’s suspension graciously soaks up bumps, and its cabin remains serene on the freeway. Front-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission are standard. Transmission options include a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic and six-speed dual-clutch automatic.
When it comes to power plants, some 2014 Passats feature a 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine good for 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. This engine was phased out of the lineup early in the model year and replaced with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The Passat’s available 3.6-liter V6 produces 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine offered, and it’s good for 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque.
Gas-only Passat sedans achieve EPA ratings of up to 24/35 mpg city/highway.
