Volkswagen’s mid-size sedan received a complete makeover for the 2006 model year; changes for 2007 include the introduction of a wagon version and the availability of Adaptive Cruise Control, a system that automatically adjusts vehicle speed to compensate for changing traffic flow. The ’07 Passat has 2.4 inches more rear-seat legroom than the previous generation Passat as well as an available 280-horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 and optional 4Motion all-wheel drive. The standard Passat engine is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder developing 200 horsepower. It can be teamed with either a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic with Tiptronic manual-shift capability. The V-6 comes only with the six-speed automatic but is about a second faster to 60 mph than the four-cylinder/manual transmission version of the Passat, which gets there in about 7.6 seconds. High-tech features abound on the Passat, including electro-assisted power steering, adaptive high-intensity xenon lighting, and active head restraints to limit the potential for whiplash injury. Available equipment includes a premium Dynaudio sound system sourced from the Danish audiophile company of the same name, custom designed for the Passat. Front side and full-length head/curtain airbags are standard; side airbags for back seat passengers are optional. The Passat is a great choice in the entry-luxury/sport segment, especially when ordered with the optional 3.2-liter V-6 engine.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
