The 2019 Passat sedan’s advantage over the Fusion in terms of economy and power is well-documented, but it’s also highly capable of giving you a stellar, entertaining experience behind the wheel. It offers  a 400-watt Fender® Premium Audio System not seen on the Fusion, as well as some of the best security and navigation features in the business thanks to VW Car-Net. All the while, the Passat works hard to keep you safe in ways that a Ford just can’t match. This is due to the following safety features:  

Adaptive Cruise Control 

Blind Spot Monitor 

Lane Assist 

Front Assist 

Rear Traffic Alert 

Many more!
