Read our most comprehensive review of the 2018 VW Passat standard features, trim levels, and available options. Additional new features for the 2018 VW Passat include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2018 VW Passat is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

  • Many trims to choose from
  • Fuel efficient hybrid variant
  • Active safety features come standard


  • Choppy ride in SE trim
  • Some cheap hard plastic interior components
  • Sloppy handling and steering

In a 2017 comparison test that included the car, the 2018 VW Passat placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2018 VW Passat weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2018 VW Passat, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2018 VW Passat doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity. A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2018 VW Passat trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.
