If you’re looking for a midsize sedan that provides a spacious cabin and a smooth, comfortable ride, we think you’ll love the 2022 Volkswagen Passat. Customers of the Visalia Volkswagen dealer report they’re impressed with the Passat’s driver assistance and technology features. The Passat is affordably priced, so buyers will get a lot of car for the money.
Volkswagen will end production of the Passat after the 2022 model year. If you want to get behind the wheel of this exceptional sedan, act quickly while the supply lasts. To commemorate the Passat, VW adds a new Limited Edition model. Just 1,973 units will be available at dealerships like the Visalia VW dealer. Of these, 423 models will be painted in a unique Racing Green metallic exterior color.
The Volkswagen Passat receives favorable reviews from the automotive media. Cars.com writes:
“The Passat is very well equipped, has a ton of usable space, drives well, looks good and has a ton of standard electronic safety systems. ... Perhaps the most striking aspect of the Passat since it became a separate car from the European version for model-year 2012 is the room inside — especially the backseat. It’s cavernous, with nearly limousine-like legroom for rear passengers.”
The 2022 Passat is available in SE, R-line and Limited Edition trim levels. Powering the Passat is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant that makes 174 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque, coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Passat returns an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.*
The Passat’s luxurious interior features high-quality materials that are sure to impress passengers. Even tall passengers get lots of legroom, with 39.1 inches in the rear to stretch out and stay comfortable. The seats are supportive and relaxing. There are 15.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk to take along a full load of groceries, suitcases for a trip, and any other cargo you’ll need to take along.
Standard features for all trims include automatic LED headlights, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, simulated perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, a self-dimming rearview mirror, a powered tilt and sliding sunroof, and rain-sensing wipers. The infotainment system gets a 6.3-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, voice recognition, Bluetooth, three USB ports, and Wi-Fi capability (owners must subscribe).
Safety gear that comes standard includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. High-beam assist is available.
