2000 Volkswagen Passat Interior

The cabin in Passat is attractive, comfortable, and efficient. There are comfortable and supportive front seats. Adjustable for the optional seat heaters. Visibility is extreme because when all three rear headrests are up, the rear windscreen is partially blocked. The steering wheel coated in leather is perfect. This dashboard has a sleek look, with rounded shapes and a distinctive instrument pod with the speedometer, tachometer, water temperature, and fuel gauges. The instruments have a red needle on indigo gauges in the night, which minimizes the glare.   

Backseats are very spacious, with space for the front seats to slide your feet. Four people easily take this car. For short drives, a fifth person must be happy. Even for hat wearers, there is a great deal of headroom in the front seat, but rear passengers up to 6 feet can see their heads rubbing off the headliner – the only side of this elegant arched roof. The double front airbags and tensioners are standard, which are automatically applied during a collision. The second airbag in each front seat provides extra side impact protection. There’s plenty of trunk space and not the hinges in the trunk. A split rear folding seatback significantly increases cargo space.
