How well does the new 2019 Volkswagen Passat perform?

Performance Features and Fuel Economy Rating of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat

The Volkswagen model line is an iconic representation of German engineering and ingenuity, as it produces vehicles that are class leaders in both efficiency and high performance. One of the best examples of this is the 2019 Passat, a mid-size sedan with a larger-than-life personality. We want to give you an inside look at its full capacities today, so come with Janesville VW and see the Performance Features and Fuel Economy Rating of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat – you’re sure to love what it can do!

2019 VW Passat engine specs and drivetrain capability

For the new 2019 model year, the Passat line has done away with its 3.6-liter V6 engine option, focusing entirely on a 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged Inline 4. Don’t assume that the Passat doesn’t still have plenty of punch, however – it can produce up to 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, more than enough adrenaline to satisfy you on the daily journey.

In addition to its maximum power ratings, the 2019 Passat is able to put more control of it in your hands. This is thanks to a 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, which adds Sport mode into the equation as well. This transforms the Passat into an active and athletic example of what the VW model line is most notable for.

2019 VW Passat gas mileage and driving range

Of course, due to its mid-size sedan designation, the 2019 Passat is also trusted to give you more time on the road and less time at the pump. It’s able to achieve up to 25 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway – combined with an 18.5-gallon tank, this means that theoretically, you could travel over 650 miles between fill-ups!
