Introducing the 2016 Volkswagen Passat


When most people think about Volkswagen, the first thing that comes to mind is normally either the ever-popular VW Beetle or the old hippie vans, the VW Type 2. Lately, however, Volkswagen has been turning out some refreshingly attractive sedans and SUV’s that have given the German car company a totally new image.

It started in 2011 with the release of the redesigned VW Jetta, and the improvements did not stop there. From the ultra-versatile VW Touareg to the sport focused VW CC, the entire brand has gone through significant improvements both aesthetically and in the performance department.

One of our favorite redesigns here at Volkswagen of Gainesville, one of the top dealers of new Volkswagens in Gainesville, Florida, is the all-new 2016 VW Passat. Not often does a car of this style, quality and affordability come along, so it is best to thoroughly appreciate it when it does.


Practical where you Need it to be, Refined where you Want it to be

From the subtle muscular contours on the hood to the aggressively styled grille and front bumper to the low-set body and wide base, it’s clear that the engineers at Volkswagen we are set on turning heads with the Passat.

The angular headlights give the Passat an attitude and identity all its own. With such an attractive exterior, there has to be a price markup, right? Wrong. The Passat is one of Volkswagen’s more moderately priced new vehicle options, which is exceedingly impressive since the company has already built a reputation as one of the best value brands on the market.

On top of the value pricing and the sporty styling, the Passat earns an astonishing 25 city and 38 highway miles per gallon from its 1.8 liter turbocharged engine. So after saving you money at the dealership, the Passat doesn’t quit but instead saves you money at the gas station as well. It’s just one more way that Volkswagen commits to providing its customers with unmatchable value.



Past the stunningly attractive exterior, past the ultra-fuel-efficient engine, lies a spacious and refined interior. The Passat is all class with its available heated front AND rear seats, available frameless rearview mirror, and VW Car-Net App-Connect.

Receive text messages, choose your favorite Pandora station or search for directions to that trendy new restaurant you’ve heard about, all from the touchscreen monitor embedded in the dashboard. When the tech features aren’t keeping you entertained, they are keeping you safe with available innovative features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, lane departure warning, and park assist.

These features coupled with the sturdy structure of the vehicle and the built-in airbag system have done enough to earn the 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, one of the most prestigious safety awards available. The 2016 Volkswagen Passat has seemingly all bases covered. Whether you value style, technology, fuel efficiency, safety, or if you just want a great car for a low price, the Passat is the vehicle for you.
