What's New For the 2019 Volkswagen Passat?

The 2019 Volkswagen Passat will see a reduction in the number of trims from seven to two: the Wolfsburg Edition and the SE R-Line But with the volume of standard and optional features available, the eliminated trims won't be missed. This year, the Passat features a generous dose of amenities such as a standard 6.3-inch touchscreen, heated leather seats, and automatic LED headlights. In both editions, you'll have an array of options for customizing your Passat and making it even more luxurious with amenities like a sunroof and custom wheels.

What are the 2019 Passat Trims & Features?

The SE-R Line is a combination of two previous trims offered in 2018 called the SE and the R-Line. As you might have guessed, the SE-R Line merges the most salient features of those two earlier models. Even the Wolfsburg Edition, which is technically the base model of the two trims, comes loaded with an impressive array of features, and without a sky-high price tag that you might expect as result. In the Wolfsburg Edition you'll find blind-spot monitoring, leatherette seats and a premier infotainment system with a voice-controlled 6.3-inch touchscreen display that has app connectivity and satellite radio. Heated side mirrors are a convenient feature for winter driving, and as are standard heated front seats. The backup camera system, a standard safety feature, allows you to reverse safely and confidently. Seventeen-inch wheels are standard, but an available package lets you upgrade to larger wheels if you choose. You can also add a sunroof. If you choose the SE R-Line instead, you'll get signature R-Line touches along the exterior, including custom R-Line side skirts and bumpers. The infotainment and sound system features higher-end touches including a premier Fender audio system and a media center with integrated navigation. Other standard features include parking distance control, an easy-open trunk, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control is also a standard component on the SE R-Line. With the SE R-Line, you'll also get a power-operated sunroof, power-operated outer mirrors, and LED front and rear lights. Nineteen-inch alloy wheels are standard on this trim level. Another standard feature on this trim level is ambient interior lighting, which gives the trim a limousine-like look that will surely impress your passengers.

What's New for 2019 with Passat Performance?

2019 Volkswagen Passat Front GrilleIn 2019, both versions of the Passat share the same engine. Both are powered by a 2.0L, four-cylinder, turbo-charged engine that produces up to 174 HP and up to 184 LB-FT of torque. The engine features 16-valve technology, as well as direct fuel injection and an intercooling system that prevents it from getting overheated. The Passat this year also has an independent front suspension system. In both trim levels, it is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission system that comes with a special Sport mode to give the Passat a zippier feel as you're cruising down the highway or taking turns.

Volkswagen Passat Safety

2019 Volkswagen Passat Rear ViewWith a number of active and passive safety features, both versions of the Passat are designed to keep you and passengers protected in case of an accident, and also avoid accidents if possible in the first place. Some of the standard safety equipment you'll find on this year's Passat includes parking distance control, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. In 2019, you'll also find safety features on the Passat that were previously only available on higher-end 2018 models, including rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning, and automatic emergency braking, which detects when a front-end collision is unavoidable and applies the brakes to help you stop in time.
