The 2016 Volkswagen Passat vs the 2016 Honda Accord
Chic, stylish, and boasting the best in Volkswagen engineering, the 2016 Volkswagen Passat proudly leads its class in quality design. Its exterior catches the eye, but its comfortable ride, commitment to fuel economy, and unbeatable performance sets it apart from its peers in the Manhattan Beach area. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison with the 2016 Honda Accord, and see for yourself why the Passat is so impressive.
Comparing Sedan Performance
The new Volkswagen Passat produces at least 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque with its 1.8L 16-valve turbocharged DI engine. It handles intuitively, and it accelerates with effortless grace. There are, however, more powerful engine options available, and the Passat achieves a maximum available horsepower of 280 hp. The Passat's front-wheel drivetrain ensures an assured and confident ride, and its 110.4-inch wheelbase balances tight turning with comfort and stability. And with an available fuel economy of 25 mpg city*/38 mpg highway*, the Passat promises you more time on the road and less time at the pump.
The 2016 Honda Accord competes fiercely with its inline 4-cylinder engine and standard 185 horsepower. The Accord's maximum of 278 horsepower, however, comes in right under the Passat's available 280. Similarly, the Accord's available 37 mpg highway lags behind the economy of the Passat. Its narrower wheelbase also translates to a less elegant ride, and the unit-body of the Accord can often translate into less responsive handling.
When it comes to available features, the new Passat lives up to the Volkswagen name. It gifts drivers an impressive suite of comfort, entertainment, and security features to help them enjoy and stay safe on their Long Beach commute. Check out some of the Passat's safety features below:
- Front assist
- Blind spot monitor
