The 2017 VW Passat remains largely unchanged from the 2016 model. Changes include a new sheet metal, some interior changes, and some great tech news. There are also some changes in the trim structure. There are now more driver assistance and tech features that come standard in the lower trim levels. A quiet cabin, spacious back seats, and a smooth ride are all hallmarks of the 2017 Volkswagen Passat.
Volkswagen is known for its focus on safety and the 2017 VW Passat has earned the top 5-Star safety designation from the NHTSA. Now, a lot of those safety features will be available at the entry level SE model. For example, SE now comes standard with keyless entry, Rear Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring.
There is also a tech trim available for the SE trim level. It is available with two different engines, the 1.8T or the V6. The SEL is also available with the V6. The tech trim model has remote start, Park Pilot and LED head and taillights.
Another change in the trim level is the R-line, the Passat’s sporty offering. The R-line now includes USB connectivity as well as a lighting package that features LED headlamps and taillights. The R-line now has a number of additional safety features and also has Car-Net App-connect.
