2016 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T SE: Sporty And Comfortable
The 2016 Volkswagen Passat receives a subtle redesign and some new upgrades in the form of the Passat 1.8T SE. The car embodies the term “sports sedan,” combining all the space of a comfortable passenger car with the impressive performance delivered by the turbocharged engine, precise electro-mechanical power steering, and road-hugging suspension.
Wide-opening doors add to the spacious feeling of the Passat 1.8T SE. Split-folding rear seats provide additional cargo space if you max out the 15.9 cubic feet of space in the trunk. If you’re traveling without a middle passenger, a pull-down center armrest with dual cupholders folds down in the back—a welcome feature for rear passengers during long trips. But that’s only the icing on the cake. Rear passengers truly travel in style thanks to ample legroom that provides more than enough space to stretch out for even the tallest riders.
Up front, drivers are treated to a new dashboard and center console integrated with two-tone décor panels. A new flat-bottomed steering wheel adds to the sporty feel of the car, while a new frameless rearview mirror adds “an understated touch of elegance” according to Volkswagen, a notion we agree with here at Bill Jacobs Volkswagen. Standard features include a power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming, and USB and auxiliary inputs, giving drivers a capable cockpit to steer from. Chrome trim around the air vents, upper door trim, cupholders, and shift lever also help to boost the premium feel of the new Passat 1.8T SE.
