New for 2010
Volkswagen's Direct Shift Gearbox, a six-speed dual-clutch transmission with automatic manual-shift operation, replaces a conventional six-speed automatic as the lone transmission choice. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is a new design, Bluetooth is standard and there's an optional touch-screen radio.

A medallion-shaped grille covers the Passat's front end, and sweeping lines enhance the model's sides. The body is 188.2 inches long and 71.7 inches wide. The Passat's brakes have a wiping feature that removes moisture from the discs.
  • Sport suspension and Volkswagen's Adaptive Front Lighting System optional
  • New 17-inch wheels standard
  • New 18-inch wheels optional with sport suspension
  • Standard fog lights

The Passat has room for up to five people. The 60/40-split folding rear seat has a pass-through provision. The Passat has an electronic parking brake.
  • Simulated leather seat trim standard
  • Leather upholstery available
  • Air conditioning, CD stereo standard
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional park assist

Under the Hood
Volkswagen's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder develops 200 horsepower and 207 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch transmission that provides automatic manual gear changes is now standard.

  • Six airbags standard, including side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags
  • Optional rear-seat side-impact airbags
  • Standard adjustable head restraints; front seat restraints are active
  • Standard all-disc antilock brakes

Passat Wagon
Like the sedan, the 2010 wagon is available in only one trim level: Komfort. It includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that develops 200 hp and 207 pounds-feet of torque and the six-speed DSG automatic.

The wagon provides increased cargo space: 35.8 cubic feet compared to the sedan's 14.2 cubic feet, however, it is listed as being .2 inches shorter than the sedan. A power liftgate is standard on wagons.

The Passat wagon has all the same standard safety equipment as the sedan. It also has optional side-impact airbags for the rear seats, as does the sedan. Back to top
