2018 Volkswagen Passat Engine Options

The Volkswagen Passat can sometimes be lost in the mix, especially now with so much hype and attention surrounding the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta redesign. Therefore, we thought it’d be fair to shift some of that focus towards the unique advantages of the 2018 Passat. Much more thrilling than the Jetta, let’s take a look at the 2018 VW Passat engine options.
