Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Volkswagen Passat: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Matthew Keegan

Model Preview

The midsize Volkswagen Passat sedan is in its fourth generation, with the current model introduced nearly a decade ago. It is the first model Volkswagen began building at its Chattanooga, Tennessee, factory, but soon it will no longer be made. Indeed, Volkswagen recently confirmed that the Passat will soon be discontinued, although the similar-sized Volkswagen Arteon may live on.

For its final year, the Passat will offer a Limited Edition model that the automaker will build just 1,973 examples of. The number represents the first year the Passat was sold in Germany. Unique color combinations like Racing Green Metallic with a Mauro Brown interior, 15-spoke 18-inch wheels, black folding mirrors, LED headlights, and more will distinguish this final edition.

Since debuting, the Passat has represented a midsize, front-wheel-drive four-door sedan with room for five. This model features a wide grille with horizontal slats, large LED lighting elements, and a ribbed hood. Its profile is much tamer than most competitors with its even beltline, gentle character lines, and limited body sculpting. From the rear, narrow wraparound taillamps, a trunk lip spoiler, and dual exhaust ports mark the fascia.


Volkswagen Passat

Inside, the Passat has one of the roomiest rear passenger areas in this class. Two 6-foot tall adults sitting behind two 6-foot adults, fit with ease; a fifth passenger is possible. The trunk is a roomy 15.9 cubic feet, which is slightly above average for the segment.

VW dresses the Passat in cloth seats with genuine leather available. A minimalist cabin features hard plastics and imitation wood, but the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift column ease that plain look somewhat.

The Passat comes with a 6.3-inch touchscreen, one of the smallest in the segment. A USB port, CD player, Bluetooth, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone compatibility are among the infotainment features of note. A Fender audio system is also available.

Volkswagen equips every Passat model with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 174 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque. This engine works with a 6-speed automatic transmission to shuttle power to the front wheels. This sedan makes an EPA-estimated 24/36/28 mpg city/highway combined, which is average for the segment.

On the safety front, Volkswagen equips the Passat with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control. It is also equipped with an after-crash braking system that stabilizes the car. We haven’t seen new crash test scores from the IIHS in several years, but the Passat does hold a 5-star rating from the NHTSA.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect the 2022 Passat to go on sale sometime this fall. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

VW hasn't announced full 2022 Passat pricing just yet. However, the new Passat Limited Edition has an MSRP of $31,290 including destination. The model's current price range is between $24,990 to $30,990.

Among the Passat’s competitors are the Mazda Mazda6, Honda Accord, Kia K5, Subaru Legacy, Hyundai Sonata, and the Nissan Altima.
