Car shoppers in the Torrance-area have many choices for midsize sedans, but a model that stands out from the competition is the refined and sophisticated 2018 Volkswagen Passat. There's much to like about the new Passat, including its impressive performance, comfortable and spacious interior, state-of-the-art technologies and generous warranty coverage. Here at Pacific Volkswagen, we invite midsize sedan shoppers in the South Bay of Los Angeles to check out the outstanding 2018 VW Passat!
While midsize sedans have a reputation for conservative styling, the 2018 Passat defies expectations with its beautiful design. Exterior highlights include the muscular hood, sleek headlights and chrome grille. The new Passat also offers the option for energy-efficient LED headlights and taillights. If you desire a sporty look, you can get the Passat GT, with 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, red brake calipers and darkened side window trim. The premium look of the Passat continues to the interior, with high-quality seating materials and chrome trim. The new Jetta offers plenty of space for five passengers, and the trunk has a capacity of 15.9 cu-ft, giving you the ability to load up many items — whether it be for grocery store visits or lengthy Southern California excursions.
The 2018 Passat has an abundance of advanced technologies. All Passat trims come standard with the MIB II infotainment system, which offers a multitude of features, entertainment options, smartphone compatibility and access to vehicle services. With Car-Net Security and Service, you can do such things as access the vehicle remotely and find your parking spot, while Car-Net Guide & Inform enables you to navigate to your destination with ease. Also, whether you're listening to some pulsating music or your favorite talk radio show, the available Fender Premium Audio will provide an exquisite sound experience.
With the 2018 Passat, you have a choice of two advanced engines. The base 2.0L TSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 174-hp and gets up to an estimated highway fuel economy of 36 mpg, while the robust 3.6-liter VR6 engine delivers 280-hp and gets up to an estimated highway fuel economy of 28 mpg. The performance of the 2018 Passat is further aided by its sporty suspension and electro-mechanical power steering. The new Passat also offers many advanced safety technologies, including the standard Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, Intelligent Crash Response System and a rearview camera.
