Everything You Need to Know Volkswagen Passat 2020

As automakers continue to kill off sedans in favor of adding more SUVs to their lineups, the Volkswagen Passat’s competition is dwindling — but that didn’t stop the automaker from revising it for model-year 2020. VW lightly updated its sedan for the new decade, and the biggest things that stand out are the model’s more coupelike styling as well as its redesigned cockpit and new instrument panel.

Under the hood, the car remains largely the same: Like the previous model, the only powertrain is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Horsepower remains at 174, but torque has been increased to 206 pounds-feet from 184.
