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.

2021 Volkswagen Passat Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - February 17, 2021

What's New

The 2021 Volkswagen Passat receives additional standard equipment following last year's total redesign. All models now come with adaptive cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The mid-level SE gains a sunroof and 18-inch wheels, while the sporty R-Line gets adaptive front lighting with automatic high beams. The leather-appointed SEL model departs.

Choosing your Volkswagen Passat

Volkswagen offers the Passat in three trims: S, SE, and R-Line. Pricing starts at $24,990 including destination and tops out at $31,385 for the R-Line.

Engine Choices

Every Passat carries a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 174 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to front wheels.

This setup is EPA-rated at 23 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 27 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Passat is a midsize sedan with plenty of room for five. At 15.9 cubic feet, trunk space ranks near the top of this class.

Safety Features

The Passat comes with standard adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and front collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection.

Moving up to the SE brings active lane-keeping assist, and the R-Line adds adaptive headlights with automatic high beams.

Connectivity

The standard infotainment system features a 6.3-inch touchscreen, six speakers, satellite radio, a USB port, an SD card reader, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The SE adds two rear USB ports.

The R-Line gets a nine-speaker Fender sound system with HD radio, navigation, and an 8-inch touchscreen.

Wireless device charging isn't available on the Passat.

S — From $24,990

The S offers cloth upholstery, manual seats and climate control, heated side mirrors with memory, LED headlights and taillights, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The interior looks more polished this year thanks to the addition of leather trim on the steering wheel, shift knob, and brake handle.

SE — From $27,990

The SE gets a leatherette interior with automatic dual-zone climate control, a power driver seat, and heated front seats. Other upgrades include remote start, a sunroof, and 18-inch wheels.

R-Line — From $31,385

The R-Line takes on a sportier look with a unique front bumper, a rear sport valance, special badging, and 19-inch two-tone wheels. Buyers also get automatic wipers, ambient interior lighting, and the upgraded infotainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat SE provides popular family car features at a friendly price. That makes it our pick unless you can't live without the
R-Line's navigation and larger touchscreen.
