The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 Volkswagen Passat handles family business, performing with more grace than most mid-size models, with an understated stylishness shining through. If you seek proof that Detroit in general, and Ford in particular, can build a comfortable, high-quality, fine-driving, and hyper-efficient sedan that is more than competitive, look to the 2010 Ford Fusion.
