2016 VW Passat

 

If you want your sedan to convey sophistication, you’ll be happy to know that in the 2016 Passat, refinement comes standard. Quality German engineering can be found in every detail, and with a powerful 1.8 TSI® engine or available 3.6 VR6 engine, you know you’ll be finding performance too. Add in interior features like leather seating surfaces, and our available Golden Oak interior, and you’ll be certain you’re getting the whole polished package. Whether it’s business outings or family vacations, you’ll have a sensible, sophisticated ride that’ll get you where you’re going – and look good doing it

What’s New in the 2016 Passat?

 

The refresh for the 2016 Passat includes a significant exterior update and big changes to the car’s multimedia system. While the exterior changes appear subtle, only the roof, doors and body side are carryovers from the 2015 model. Everything else – hood, grille, front fenders, front and rear bumpers, trunklid, rims – has been updated. Edges that were once round have been squared off and chiseled by the car’s designers, and the sedan’s body and underside have been made more aerodynamically fit. The hood, in particular, stands out with its sculpted lines. The Passat was already a handsome, if understated, car. This new iteration has more presence, and now looks more upscale and elegant for less money.

 

The biggest change, however, is found inside with the addition of Volkswagen’s new second-gen MIB II infotainment system, a major upgrade from the old RNS 510 system. Standard on all five trimlines (Trendline, Trendline+, Comfortline, Highline and Execline) is a 6.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display that allows for swiping and pinch-zooming, a USB port, and the much-heralded App-Connect feature. This technology allows integration with three major smartphone platforms – Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. Connecting your iPhone with Apple CarPlay, for instance, mirrors your phone’s interface onto the car’s 6.3-inch screen, allowing you to open the iPhone’s map app, play music or activate Siri, all without fiddling with your smartphone. It’s definitely a helpful feature that cuts down on distractions by projecting a familiar environment (your phone) onto the car’s screen. And it’s really a cinch to use. Simply hook up your phone with the provided USB cable and the car instantly recognizes it and does the rest (granted, only if your phone is an iPhone or Android). If you’d still prefer your car to come with built-in navigation, the Highline and Execline come with it standard, and it’s an available option in the Comfortline.

 

In contrast, things haven’t changed as much under the Passat’s sculpted new hood. Standard on all but the top-end Execline trim is Volkswagen’s 1.8-litre four-cylinder TSI engine. The turbocharged, direct-injection engine makes 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The more powerful 3.6-litre VR6 engine, which makes 280 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, is, sadly, only available on the fully-loaded Execline trim.

 

Also available for the first time in the Passat is an R Line package that spices things up considerably with the addition of unique rocker panels, a stylized front bumper with contrasting black accents, LED headlights and taillights (which are also available in the Execline trim), paddle shifters, a modified rear diffuser, sport seats and 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

2016 Passat Key Features:

 

App-Connect†

Think smart, with App-Connect, using either Android Auto™ from Google® , CarPlay™ from Apple® , or MirrorLink™. Its intuitive interface and powerful voice command actions let you easily search for anything online from songs to directions, so you’ll keep your eyes on the road, and not on your screen.

Available Discover Media infotainment system†

The new Discover Media infotainment system combines next-generation navigation features with in-car media entertainment and App-Connect functionality, all controlled from an easy-to-use 6.33″ touchscreen colour display.

KESSY – keyless access with push-start button

It’s easy to lose your keys at the bottom of your purse, or not have a hand free to reach the keys in your pocket. But with KESSY keyless access, you can lock or unlock your doors and start your Volkswagen without having to search for your keys. You don’t even have to know what pocket they’re in.

Available Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert*††

Check your surroundings safely and easily. Whether you’re changing lanes or in reverse, your Jetta is always looking out for you.

Standard rearview camera††

We concealed a tiny camera on the back of the car, to help you see things that are hidden behind you. Like, for instance, someone who can’t stop staring at your Jetta

Available Lane Assist*†

Whenever the camera recognizes that the vehicle threatens to leave the predicted lane, Lane Assist provides a haptic warning by vibrating the steering wheel.

Available Adaptive Cruise Control*

Adaptive Cruise Control is genius. It uses sensors to detect the distance to the vehicle ahead, and then automatically adjusts your speed to always keep you at a safe distance without ever needing to adjust the gas or brake pedals – even in stop-and-go traffic.
