Climatronic dual-zone electronic climate control
No more fighting over the heat or A/C. Both the driver and front passenger can choose their own individual comfort levels. There’s also a built-in dehumidifying feature to reduce interior fogging, and a pollen filter to help keep the air clean.
Easy Open Trunk
Available Easy Open trunk
Whether it’s bags of groceries or sports gear, you’re bound to have your hands full. As long as you have your keys on you, just swipe your foot under the rear bumper and the available hands-free Easy Open trunk unlocks and opens.
Available remote start
Start the ignition, and let your Passat acclimate to your last used climate control settings before you even get in. With remote start, simply press the button from a distance and comfort awaits.
3.6L VR6 280 HP, 6-speed automatic DSG with Tiptronic
Muscle up, with a more powerful V6 engine and still enjoy impressive fuel economy. And kick the fun into high gear, with a 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox with Tiptronic, offering automatic convenience, with the option to shift up or down like a stick.
The 2018 Passat is adorned with polished chrome on the exterior window surrounds, as well as side, and rear bumper accents, for a sleeker, more sophisticated look. We told you it wasn’t your average family sedan.
Available Power Sunroof
You can make your cabin feel even more spacious and airy, with a power sunroof. Take in a little or a lot of the skies above, either partially, or fully open with a simple turn of the dial. There’s even a small screen that pop ups up to keep the bugs out.
Heated front and available heated rear seats
In the 2018 Passat, comfort taking a back seat is a good thing. In addition to heated front seats as standard equipment, available heated rear seats let your rear passengers choose their own comfort level.
Blind Spot Detection
Available Blind Spot Detection with rear traffic alert
Changing lanes and backing up made easier - and safer. Radar and sonar detect vehicles and other obstacles, triggering driver alerts, automatically applying the brakes to help avoid potentially hazardous driving situations.
Available front Assist with Autonomous Emergency Braking
Gaining on the vehicle in front of you too quickly? A built-in monitor helps reduce your stopping distance, and can automatically apply the brakes at speeds less than 30 km/h.
Available Park Assist with Park Distance Control
Using ultrasonic sensors, Park Distance Control automatically engages when you're in reverse, alerting you with audible signals when there's something behind you up to 1.6 metres away.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Available Adaptive Cruise Control
You can choose to cruise, and let this system maintain consistent speed and distance from vehicles ahead, without having to touch the brake or gas pedals. Brakes are automatically applied when traffic slows, and your set speed resumes when traffic starts moving again.
Post Collision System
Automatic Post Collision Braking System
No one expects to get in an accident. But the 2018 Passat can help minimize the damage. If the system senses an impact, the brakes are automatically applied to help prevent another collision.
