A midsize vehicle design offers families and individuals a plethora of advantages for the daily commute and weekend adventures. These models often combine interior space, engaging driving, and practical technology for a great all-round driving experience. For the discerning driver looking for unique styling and great driving guarantees, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat in Topeka KS may be exactly what car shoppers are seeking. Not only does it come with plenty of standard features, but with 15.9 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk and up to 39.1 inches of legroom, there is plenty of room for both passengers and cargo.
The VW Passat was redesigned in 2016, but each year since has added attractive improvements. The 2018 Volkswagen Passat benefits from a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder base engine, an elite sporty trim level, and the addition of the elite People First Warranty. Each of these advantages makes this five-passenger midsize sedan even more attractive to a variety of shoppers.
The 2018 Volkswagen Passat in Topeka KS will be available in six trim levels, with a choice of two engine options. Whether drivers choose the S, R-Line® , SE, SE with Technology, GT or SEL Premium trim, they can enjoy an available Driver Assistance Package that features autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warnings, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic assist.
Cloth upholstery is standard, but leatherette seating comes on several upper trims, and the SEL Premium trim boasts Vienna leather. The MIB II infotainment system is standard on all models, though the touchscreen display size will vary depending on the model. The Passat S trim gets a five-inch touchscreen display, while upper models enjoy a 6.3-inch view.
A new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated for 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque replaces last year's 1.8-liter model as the Passat's standard engine. Some trims are also available with a 3.6-liter V-6 that cranks out 280 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The new, sporty GT trim on the 2018 Volkswagen Passat comes standard with this elite engine, and also features unique black trim and a sport-tuned suspension.
All models of the 2018 Volkswagen Passat will also come with the Volkswagen People First Warranty, which offers a New Vehicle Limited Warranty for the sedan's powertrain components for six-years or 72,000 miles (whichever comes first).
