2020 Volkswagen Passat Trims & Specs

Powered by a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, the Volkswagen Passat is available in four distinct trim levels: S, SE, R-Line, and SEL. A six-speed automatic gearbox rows the gears for the sedan, directing the 174 hp and 206 lb-ft to the front wheels only.

Even the entry-level model comes well-equipped with a variety of features. Riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, the body is outfitted with a full array of LED lighting elements - headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights. The interior comes upholstered in cloth with only six-way manual front seats, but it gets the same standard infotainment suite consisting of a 6.3-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD Radio, SiriusXM, and a six-speaker sound system. It also gets forward collision avoidance, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.

Move through the trim levels, and you will see larger wheels, leatherette or leather upholstery, and eight-way power front seats added. Heated front and rear seats are also available, along with lane keeping assist features, a power sunroof, and a premium Fender sound system.
