A black spoiler and double exhaust pipes bring up the rear of the vehicle. On the inside, the new Passat GT has carbon fiber-optic décor, black leatherette seating surfaces, aluminum GT-badged sills, and a piano black center console. Notable standard amenities on the new Passat GT include dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control and Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®.

The engine is then mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and paddle shifters.
