2010 Volkswagen Passat Wagon Overview

The 2010 VW Passat Wagon has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a new automatic transmission that shifts smoothly, according to most reviewers. They said that the engine is lively, with plenty of power for highway driving and passing. The Passat Wagon gets 22/31 mpg on the highway, which is good for the class. The Passat Wagon has front-wheel drive, and there isn’t an available all-wheel drive system like some other wagons have. However, most test drivers thought the Passat Wagon is fun to drive, thanks to its cornering ability, precise steering and strong braking.

Reviewers said the Volkswagen Passat has one of the nicest interiors in its class. They liked the high-quality materials, which give the cabin an upscale look. Some test drivers had trouble finding a comfortable driving position, and others said that foot space in the second row is limited. However, reviewers liked the knee room in the back seat, and said that the seats are comfortable overall. The Volkswagen Passat Wagon has 35.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 61.82 cubic feet with the back seat folded down. Standard features include a power sunroof, heated windshield washer nozzles, a six-disc CD changer, satellite radio, a power liftgate, heated front seats and leatherette upholstery. Available features include a navigation system and an iPod adapter.

The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen is available with a fuel-efficient diesel engine, which the Passat Wagon lacks. The Jetta SportWagen is a bit smaller in size, and reviewers liked its high-quality interior.
