2018 Volkswagen Passat GT Review: Built For America, Obviously
American cars of the late 1990s and early 2000s had a lot of things in common. They were spacious on the inside, had huge trunks, and, in their best trims, sporty looks, a relaxed suspension tune, and a potent V6 engine. The Volkswagen Passat GT is all of those things roughly two decades late.
Priced at just under $30,000, the Passat GT is a reminder of what family cars used to be. But it’s also a reminder of just how far the mid-size sedan segment has come. To customers that miss the good ole days, the Passat GT is a dream, but it’s not as sharp, pleasant to drive, or well equipped as a modern Honda Accord, Mazda6, or Toyota Camry.
