With its powerful engine choices, the 2017 Passat delivers impressive performance. It's available in a 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four cylinder and a 3.6-liter VR6 engine, which delivers a magnificent 280 horsepower — one of the highest outputs in the midsize sedan class. In addition, the 2017 Passat 1.8T has a fuel-sipping EPA estimated highway gas mileage of 34 mpg with the automatic transmission. Giving the Passat dynamic handling and precise steering is a front suspension that features damper struts with robust lower control arms, coil springs and an anti-roll bar. At the rear, there’s a sophisticated four-link independent layout with telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar. The electro-mechanical power steering is weighted to provide a balance between precision at highway speeds and lower steering weight at parking speeds. Swinging into a tight parking spot is easy, thanks to the Passat’s 36.4-foot turning radius and just three turns from lock-to-lock.
