 The 2010 Volkswagen Passat Wagon is mechanically the same as the 2010 Volkswagen Passat Sedan, and like the Sedan is now only offered in a single Komfort trim, with a 200-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. That's fine, as the engine provides good performance and impressive economy with the six-speed automatic transmission

From the outside, we think the 2010 Volkswagen Passat Wagon’s design is more cohesive and attractive than the sedan, with better proportions. A power liftgate is standard on all wagons—either a welcome convenience or unnecessary complexity, depending on your demands. The Passat Wagon has impressive backseat space that rivals some of the roomiest sedans in the mid-size class; it’s especially leg-friendly for lanky adult passengers. Rear seatbacks fold forward neatly to expand the cargo floor, which is very convenient with its low lift-in height, and altogether the 2010 VW Passat Wagon makes a great SUV alternative. Overall, the quality of the materials in the Volkswagen Passat Wagon and Sedan is quite impressive, and the interior layout feels both luxurious and practical.

For extensive coverage of both of these mid-size models, visit our 2010 VW Passat Sedan review, which also includes pictures, specs, videos, and more.
