When I learned I’d review the 2020 Volkswagen Passat my first thought was that it may be a manually driven, diesel gas vehicle – however the 2020 Volkswagen Passat was not that! This model features 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic®, (Tiptronic transmission is an automatic gearbox with the ability to change gears manually. It allows greater control when changing gears, ideal for going up a hill or for better control when overtaking on the highway), Electronic stability control (ESC), TSI® 2.0-liter Inline Four-Cylinder Turbocharged Engine w/Torque Converter, 174 horsepower… surprisingly quick and easy to drive.
The maximum torque on this baby is 207 lbs/ft.
What is the “2.0 TSI” engine? An updated version of the benchmark EA888 four-cylinder, turbocharged and direct-injection engine uses an innovative modification to the conventional four-stroke cycle to offer an improved combination of power, efficiency and responsiveness. It is this TSI engine which enables exceptional fuel economy.
This leads me to my next powerful revelation:
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is by far, the best car on gas I have ever had the pleasure of driving. I spent two days driving in “stop and go” traffic around the city, on major highways and logged around 4 hours of time behind the wheel.
Care to guess how much the gas bill was?
Yes, I only spent $7.00 in regular unleaded fuel, per approximately 100 KM.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is already an outstanding win, but there’s more!
