2012 Volkswagen Passat SEL Premium Review

Posted: 27 Feb 2013 12:34 PM PST

American spec Passat is considerably higher than any of his predecessors lower than if the delay ultra-luxury sedan Phaeton. A stretch of about four inches in wheelbase means that back seat room ranges from good to excellent. Duration is up to three inches and a half, so squeezing into tight parking space would not be much more complicated. The range of models is different from other mid-size sedans – there is no four-cylinder base engine is VW 2.5-liter, 170-horsepower five-cylinder. V6 option is also unique VW, the latest iteration of the compact, narrow-angle VR6, 3.6-liter displacement and 280 horsepower. Want exemplary fuel economy with your space Passat? That would be TDI, with a 2.0 liter, 140 hp (and 236 lb-ft of torque) turbocharged diesel and capable of 40 mpg on the highway. With a tank of 18.5 liters, it is slightly more than 700 miles.

APPEARANCE:

If you like Volkswagen Jetta, Passat you like her. There is a definite family resemblance. Although the Passat has the same basic “new face of Volkswagen” design as the smaller Jetta, its proportions are a little different, more broadly proportionally smaller. It is beaten in a conservative manner should wear well with a mix of strong character lines integrated defined and rounded.

SAFETY:

Passat cabin is surrounded by a safety cage reinforced side beams strengthened by burglar in forged steel doors and B-pillars. Four-wheel antilock disc brakes with hydraulic brake assist get and ESC electronic stability control is standard on all models. A tire pressure monitor is also standard, and the Intelligent Crash Response automatically opens doors, turns off fuel pump, and turns on hazard warning lights in case of an accident. Front, front side and full-length side curtain airbags are standard.

PERFORMANCE:

With its possibilities of three engines, there is a desire for every Passat. Most people will find the 2.5-liter; 170-horsepower five-cylinder will be fine. Highway fuel economy rivals some hybrids, there is a 2.0-liter TDI turbodiesel, and 40 mpg is not easily reached if my VW diesel is any indication. And there will be life banda slow either. Those seeking more power can reach VR6, an innovative and compact powerplant that gets 280 hp (at 6,200 rpm) and 258 lb-ft of torque (at a low 2500 rpm) from its 3.6-liter displacement. A double overhead cam, 24-valve design with variable phasing for both intake and exhaust camshafts, fit VW DSG dual-clutch automated manual transmission driving the front wheels. DSG is as good as any traditional automatic torque converter automatic, and efficient. And abundant torque VR6, automatic works very well with manual there when he wanted never really necessary. Fuel economy is listed at 20 mpg city, 28 highways EPA (as good as or better than the old Beetle had years ago and this result in the hills and has a real heater). With a mix of highways, city traffic, and back roads generally have 24mpg, not bad at all for a car of this size. Merging and passing will present no difficulty, as the engine has only 12.3 kg Passat to move for each horsepower.

The front seat is comfortable, with good lateral support. These seats are manually adjusted, but they are relatively easy to adjust to a comfortable position. They also heat in cold weather, which proved to be valuable.

The rear seats have good legroom and decent side support themselves. Of course, the rear seat backrest is folded, to significantly increase the cargo capacity. This ruled out the center of the passengers in the rear with a high center hump.

The quality of the drive to improve the tool is very easy to read and the audio system, easy to operate, the HVAC system can provide heat (or cold), and you want it with the minimum of fuss. The HVAC system having three knobs, one for the temperature, fan speed, and a means for controlling air flow. Heated seat button located inside and outside the two knobs. The audio system is also easy to operate, and have an interesting read out.
