2017 Volkswagen Passat near Los Angeles CA

Clearly, the engineers behind Volkswagen and Ford’s flagship models knew what they were doing. You’ll achieve stellar gas mileage, efficient power, and smooth shifting throughout your drive with both cars, and for a price that can’t be beat by most mid-size cars on the road today. However, a closer look reveals that Volkswagen and the 2017 Passat are more in-tune to what you’re concerned with as a sedan driver. Look no further than the VW Car-Net interface (an infotainment system superior to Ford’s SYNC-3 tech) as proof of the manufacturer’s commitment to your comfort and connection to an ever-shrinking world. Also, you can relax in comfort on the stitched leather seating thanks to the Passat’s 5-star NHTSA safety rating. This comes because of a ton of safety features that all provide added benefits and security to your drive. Some of these include:

  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rearview Camera System
  • Front Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Lane Assist
  • Park Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Park Pilot
  • Many more!
