2010 Volkswagen Passat Sedan Pros

The Passat got stripped down to basics for 2009, so a few things were added for 2010 to fill out the package. The automatic transmission has been replaced with Volkswagen's 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic shifting. The steering wheel got a major upgrade to being leather-wrapped and multi-functional and Bluetooth is now standard. New 17-inch wheels are standard, too, with optional 18-inch wheels and sport suspension available this year.

2010 Volkswagen Passat Sedan Model Highlights

There are two versions of the Passat, a wagon and a sedan, that are nearly identical but for the back half of the car. They both have an inline 4-cylinder engine with 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Though it's disguised as a sensible family car, the Passat reaches 60 mph from a stop in 7.4 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. It uses a 6-speed DSG transmission with TipTronic for manual shifting.

The Passat uses the latest technology for performance and safety. Anti-slip regulation, electronic stabilization, engine braking assist, hydraulic brake assist are all standard. The brakes are equipped with ABS and keep themselves dry: the system automatically taps the brakes a little. Six airbags and TPMS are also standard equipment, with rear side air bags available.

There are a few standard interior features that aren't even found on more expensive vehicles, such as the 12-way power driver's seat and a power glass sunroof. More common standard features include a trip computer, air conditioning, heated seats, cruise control and an auxiliary input jack for an MP3 player. The sound system is a touch-screen Premium VIII with a 6-disc CD changer, eight speakers and Sirius satellite radio capability.

With so much included with the Passat right off the bat, there are few options. But you can swap out the stereo for a navigation and entertainment system with a 6.5-inch color touch screen, a slot for an SD car full of music files or pre-stored destinations, and a 30Gb hard drive. The only package offered is the Budapest Alloy Wheel package, which includes snazzy 18-inch wheels with all-season tires and a sport suspension.

2010 Volkswagen Passat Sedan Model News

For being in the same category as Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the Passat offers many upscale features standard, such as heated windshield washer nozzles. It's also got plenty of space inside for people and gear in either sedan or wagon form, with a reasonably powerful turbocharged engine to haul it all around. The Passat may not have the fuel sipping TDI clean diesel engine as an option, but even-so, it turns in a respectable 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
