2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2019 Volkswagen Passat

2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2019 Volkswagen Passat

There was a lot of loud rejoicing going on around here at Pohanka Volkswagen of Salisbury on the Delmarva Peninsula when the 2019 Volkswagen Passat lineup was released. And it’s not hard to see why, considering the 2019 VW Passat lineup includes all the features and capabilities needed to be a standout sedan.

But then the 2020 Volkswagen Passage was revealed, and our rejoicing got even louder. That’s because the 2020 VW Passat takes everything you loved about the 2019 Passat and improved upon it in every way that’s important to sedan customers. That’s why we decided to put together this 2020 Volkswagen Passat versus 2019 Volkswagen Passat head-to-head model comparison – so you can see just how much the 2020 Passat has improved upon its predecessors.

Listing the Ways the 2020 VW Passat Lineup Improves Upon the 2019 VW Passat Lineup at Pohanka Volkswagen of Salisbury on the Eastern Shore of Maryland

We spent our introduction telling you all about how much the 2020 Volkswagen Passat lineup has improved upon the 2019 Volkswagen Passat lineup, but now we’re going to show you exactly what those enhancements mean for you – and it all starts under the hood.

As you can see in our comparison table above, the both VW Passat lineups feature the same engine and the same maximum horsepower rating. The difference – and it’s a big one – comes in terms of torque. See, the 2020 Passat lineup features a new torque converter and new software that enable it to reach all-new torque levels.

One thing that didn’t need to be improved for the new Passat lineup is the warranty that comes with it. But when you’re already America’s Best Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, there’s not much you can do to get better.
