2019 Volkswagen Passat in Black on the RoadThe 2019 Volkswagen Passat is offered in two trims: Wolfsburg and SE R-Line. Both trims are powered by a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine and earn EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway* ratings. This makes the VW Passat more efficient on the highways than competitors like the 2018 Mazda6. Whether you’re running errands around Chicago or hitting the highways for a road trip across IL, the new Passat allows you to cruise longer on less fuel. Read on to learn more about the powertrain features that make the Volkswagen Passat mpg ratings possible!

Volkswagen Passat Engine

Under the hood of the VW Passat, you’ll find a 2.0L TSI®, 16-valve, DOHC, in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with an intercooler and direct fuel injection. This engine produces 174 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, offering a balance of power and fuel-efficiency. It’s equipped with an aluminum alloy cylinder head to help reduce weight. Engine power is harnessed by a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and sent to the front wheels. Because front-wheel drive systems are compact and light, FWD vehicles tend to be more efficient.

Other Performance Feature Highlights

In addition to its economical engine, the 2019 Volkswagen Passat offers the following features for smooth and sporty performance:

  • Sport Mode for the transmission
  • Electromechanical power steering with variable assistance
  • Independent front MacPherson struts and independent rear 4-link suspension
  • 19-inch twin 5-spoke alloy wheels (standard on SE R-Line)
  • Rear sport valance (standard on SE R-Line)
