2014 Volkswagen Passat ChangesOne of the more interesting options for a midsize sedan is the 2014 Volkswagen Passat. It’s the only European car in the family sedan segment, and that heritage is evident in its clean styling, tidy, down to business interior design and solid. Volkswagen 2014 Passat impose an optional diesel engine, and that TDI power plant returns again to fuel economy on par with hybrid sedans.

The 2014 Volkswagen Passat sedan is offered in four broad models broken down by engine 2.5L, 1.8T, TDI and V6, which are further subdivided into a quartet of different trim levels S, Wolfsburg, SE and SEL.

A six-speed automatic is standard on the SEL 1.8T, but VW will also offer the five-speed manual when this engine makes its way to the S and SE models. Called the TDI, this diesel engine comes with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automated manual transmission known as DSG, which takes the place of a conventional automatic. The strongest engine available on the Passat is a 3.6-liter V6, which churns out 280 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s optional on the SE and SEL, and the DSG automated manual transmission is standard. You can have a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission on S and SE models, while the Wolfsburg is automatic only.

2014 Volkswagen Passat Interior2014 Volkswagen Passat starts with the S base model, which comes standard with automatic headlights, keyless entry, full power accessories, air-conditioning, a six-way manual driver seat with lumbar adjustment, a 60 / 40 split folding rear seat, cloth upholstery, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, audio controls on the steering wheel, cruise control, a trip computer, Bluetooth with streaming audio and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary audio input.

The Wolfsburg Edition includes the features of the S model and adds leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a six-way power driver seat, heated front seats, satellite radio, a USB / iPod interface and VW Car Net telematics system.

Space front is good. However, the driver seat only adjusts in six ways minus lumbar. The Passat verges on full-size sedan dimensions, as even good-sized adults will have room to stretch out their legs. The spacious trunk can swallow 15.9 cubic feet of cargo and gives you plenty of room to haul items when the seats are folded.

The quality of the VW Passat interior materials is among the best in the class. The overall cabin design is decidedly upscale, while the layout of gauges and controls is refreshingly simple. The premium Fender audio system has been tuned to the acoustics of the interior and will please even hard-core audiophiles. The SE models have a lower-cost navigation unit with a small touchscreen display. You get a larger screen in the SEL.

2014 Volkswagen Passat Engine

2014 VW Passat TDI EngineThe 2014 Volkswagen Passat depends a great deal on which engine is under the hood. Although performance from the 2.5-liter five-cylinder is fully adequate, we think most buyers will appreciate the new 1.8T engine’s smoother power delivery, increased fuel economy and extra thrust for passing.

The good news is that Volkswagen is phasing in a new turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine for the 2014 model year. It doesn’t make any more horsepower than the 2.5 engine, but there’s more torque for passing maneuvers and the 1.8T engine returns better gas mileage to boot. Initially, only SEL models will have the new engine as standard, but as the 2014 model year progresses, you can expect to see the 1.8T on all VW Passats. Still, if you’re really serious about fuel economy, the extra cost of the diesel engine on the TDI models will probably be worth it to you.

Passat 1.8T a bit quicker than the TDI models. The turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel has lively low power and returns truly extraordinary fuel economy and fuel range. For those who care more about power than mpg, the 3.6-liter V6 engine delivers much more enthusiastic acceleration.
