With the upcoming release of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, drivers will have a brand-new option for luxury, performance, comfort, and style in the Volkswagen brand. However, as fantastic a model as the Arteon is, it might be out of the price range for some. Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of a stylish performance model from the Volkswagen catalog. For a more modestly priced and just as impressive catch, check out the 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT.

The 2018 VW Passat functions as the midpoint in size and power between the VW Jetta and the upcoming VW Arteon. However, the Volkswagen Passat also has a GT performance trim level available that offers it a powerful new engine as well as a redesigned exterior and interior for a sportier, performance-centered feel, look, and driving experience. Before we go any further, let’s first get a taste of what the 2018 VW Passat GT has to offer:




3.6L V6 Engine SiriusXM® Satellite Radio Power Tilting/Sliding Sunroof
280 Horsepower and 258 lb-ft of Torque Bluetooth® Audio and Phone Illuminated Vanity Mirrors
6-Speed Automated Manual Transmission VW Car-Net® Guide & Inform 2-Tone Leatherette Sport Seating
