2021 Volkswagen Passat Review 

The 2021 Volkswagen Passat trades efficiency for an affordable price and standard equipment. However, the VW sedan boasts an enjoyable ride and a spacious back seat that will convince a small family.

Each model comes with a substantial range of driver assistance and infotainment features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as automatic emergency braking and blind-spot detection.

A single powertrain option is available for the Passat: a 174-hp turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter and a six-speed automatic transmission. In critics’ research, the engine was smooth and refined across its power-range and helped drive the sedan easier.

Clean, straight lines within the Passat adopt Volkswagen’s natural design language. As a traditional German, the Passat’s interior is handsome, but it lacks real inspiration to merit the full appreciation as compared to its intenders.

2021 VW Passat Interior

In a German, utilitarian way, the 2021 VW Passat’s interior is handsome, but it lacks true inspiration to merit our full praise. The 2021 Passat cabin, however, is not entirely without merit; it is one of the most spacious and comfortable in its category. Outward increased visibility in the Passat is excellent with an open cabin and thin door pillars. 

Between family sedans, there is little variation in cargo size. you can manage to fit 16 carry-on-sized boxes behind the front seats with the seats folded to their not-quite-flat resting place. For real-world carrying ability, the Passat dropped to the bottom of the family-sedan pack, possibly because Volkswagen lost some trunk room to the massive back seat of the Passat.

A 6.3-inch touchscreen with a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and several USB ports are included in the regular infotainment system. Navigation, a significantly bigger 8.0-inch monitor, a premium sound system, and a six-month subscription to VW’s Car-Net services are included in the top model. This enables users to locate the vehicle remotely from their mobile, call for roadside assistance, and even lock/unlock the doors.
