The 2019 Passat features just two trims: the Wolfsburg and the SE R-Line, with no V6 option. These aren’t generally stocked in large numbers, so you may need to shop around to find the one you want to drive home.
Current offers are regional and good through October 31, 2019. Our examples are based on those for Western States.
Heads up: a redesign is expected for 2020 with styling akin to the Jetta.
Unadvertised dealer cash incentives in the amount of $3,000 are available to help dealers provide better prices. Dealers aren't obligated to pass those savings along, however, so be sure to shop around and drive a hard bargain.
There's also a $500 bonus available for qualified military and first responders, and new college graduates (i.e. graduated in the past 24 months) with proof of permanent, full-time income are eligible to receive a $500 credit on new financing or lease contracts signed with Volkswagen Credit.
Low APR financing:
Promotional finance rates start at 2.9% APR for 60 months.
The dealer cash discounts mentioned above aren’t available once you choose to finance. Nonetheless, there’s still room for negotiation because dealers get a $2,000 incentive for new Passat financing. Once again, be sure to negotiate to get the full value.
This month's lease:
Leasing a 2019 Passat 2.0T Wolfsburg with automatic this month starts at $249 per month for 39 (previously 36) months with $2,999 due at signing. This offer includes a 10,000-mile-per-year allowance but is not a great value.
