In short: A high-quality wagon alternative to an SUV.

Volkswagen’s Passat Wagon 2.0 combines the storage space of an SUV with the driving characteristics and fuel economy of a sedan. This sportily designed and family-friendly five-passenger vehicle exhibits a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and is well-equipped with the extras that make driving fun.
