What makes it move?
Volkswagen offers two powertrains for the 2016 Passat. The base engine is a 1.8-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 184 ft-lbs of torque. Happily, the engine runs on regular gasoline. VW teams this engine with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. If you’re looking for considerably more go, consider the 280-horsepower 3.6-liter narrow-angle VR6. Torque output is 258 ft-lbs, and the transmission of choice is a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual. Premium fuel is preferred, though it will run on regular as well.
