Though the popularity of family sedans is moving downwards in this era of crossovers, there are still some models that are keeping the segment going. The 2020 VolkswagenPassat is one such model that stayed high in popularity even in these dull sales days for the sedans. For this Volkswagen has dressed up the 2020 model year Passat models in a new attire, for which it didn’t charge anything extra from the buyers. Staff members of Seaside Volkswagen dealerships opined that, it is these good gestures from the automaker that created a warm impression on the buyers, and helped in maintaining the popularity of Passat model series.
Specialties Offered for the 2020 Model Edition
This year, this Volkswagen mid-size sedan Passat receives a new exterior refreshment as well as amuch awaited powertrain lineup that queues up the trim levels as S, SE, R-Line, and SEL grades with increasing comfort and conveniences. The 2020 edition of Passat also offers a stellar value even in its base trims, in addition to a fatbumper-to-bumper warranty for either 4-year or 50,000-miles, whichever comes first.
Th newly crafted exterior body of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat looks excitingly beautiful. The credit goes to the craftmanship of the VW designers who knew exactly where the already appraised sedan needed to be sharpened. But at the same time, they didn’t want to bring the Passat out from its conservative approach. So the sedan still wears a retro look with a bigger grille this time that sits more upright. The intrusion of a chrome brow added spice to the front fascia while the body sides, get some crisp looking curves parallel to the lines, that completes the overall impression to an attractive one.
Much Desired Interior Comfort
Sedans are meant to focus more on interior comfort rather than performance score, though the recent trend is, they should have both. And we can see that the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is at par with the trend, if not leading it in some aspects. So, inside every Passat lies a cozy room for five, that uses good quality materials for both upholstery and the hard surfaces, that feel good on the skin and on eyes. After making more than enough space for five adults, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat leaves 15.9 cubic foot of space in the trunk to carry all the stuff for the boarders.
To keep the occupants engaged and well-informed, every 2020 Passat carries either a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen display or its bigger 12.3-inch counterpart that is a part of an advanced infotainment system, that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
From a Volkswagen dealer near Seaside we learned that Volkswagen has kept only one engine variant to power the entire lineup of the 2020 Passat models. It is a 174-horsepower making 2.0-liter turbo-4 one that works in tune with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which is enough to carry out daily commuting duties around the town. All the 2020 Passat models are equipped under the carriage with a compliant suspension that can smother down all the possible road imperfections.
The only other variety in the powertrain options is pairing the same engine to an 8-speed automatic transmission to some more dynamism to the otherwise somber drives.
