After a redesign in 2016, the Volkswagen Passat has impressed drivers across the board. This midsize sedan delivers confident driving and enough space to comfortably seat up to five passengers. For the new year, the 2017 Volkswagen Passat in Topeka KS has received several new safety advantages and technology upgrades which will make this vehicle even more appealing to individual commuters and small families on the go.
One of the most delightful enhancements to the 2017 Volkswagen Passat for the new year is the addition of Forward Collision Warnings and Autonomous Emergency Braking as a standard feature across all trim levels. This means that from the base S trim to the elite SEL Premium, drivers, passengers and even pedestrians will be able to take advantage of this elite accident prevention system which can detect, and even autonomously avoid, imminent impact.
With the VW Car-Net system, 2017 Volkswagen Passat owners have access to a whole new world of phone-to-car convenience. Need to check the health of your sedan, open and close doors, or call for assistance after an accident? When paired with a compatible smartphone, Car-Net can handle all of that.
The PilotPark parking distance warning system available on the 2017 Volkswagen Passat allows drivers to fit into even the tightest spaces with confidence. This system will beep to indicate how much room there is behind the back bumper of the Passat. This allows drivers to confidently and easily parallel park.
Newly standard on the SE trim of the 2017 Volkswagen Passat, the KESSY Keyless Access system allows drivers to avoid the hassle of opening doors or starting vehicles with a physical key. As long as the keyfob is on the driver, the Passat's doors can be opened at a touch, and its engine started by fully depressing the engine start button.
While standard autonomous braking is kind of revolutionary for an inexpensive midsize sedan, it is far from the only advanced safety feature available on the 2017 Volkswagen Passat in Topeka KS. Blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alerts are now standard on all but the base S trim. Lane departure warnings are also available on some models.
The standard engine on the 2017 Volkswagen Passat is a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. It offers up to 25 mpg in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway. An advanced 3.6-liter V6 engine is also available on upper trims which offers 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
