2018 Passat

Who says a family car has to be stodgy? The 2018 Passat proves domestic bliss and premium aesthetics can happily coexist. Fun, fuel-efficient, and full of space for everyone’s gear. Stylishly sophisticated, inside and out. And packed with the latest technology and safety systems. It’s the family vehicle engineered for miles of smiles.



App-Connect. Get select apps right on your dash and control music, mapping, messaging, and more hands-free using voice commands. Just plug your compatible smartphone into App-Connect. Simple and easy to use, with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ or MirrorLink™.

Climatronic Dual-Zone Climate Control

Climatronic® dual-zone electronic climate control. No more fighting over the heat or A/C. Both the driver and front passenger can choose their own individual comfort levels. There’s also a built-in dehumidifying feature to reduce interior fogging, and a pollen filter to help keep the air clean.

Easy Open Trunk

Available Easy Open trunk. Whether it’s bags of groceries or sports gear, you’re bound to have your hands full. As long as you have your keys on you, just swipe your foot under the rear bumper and the available hands-free Easy Open trunk unlocks and opens.

Remote Start

Available remote start. Start the ignition, and let your Passat acclimate to your last used climate control settings before you even get in. With remote start, simply press the button from a distance and comfort awaits.

3.6L VR6 Engine

3.6L VR6 280 HP, 6-speed automatic DSG with Tiptronic®. Muscle up, with a more powerful V6 engine and still enjoy impressive fuel economy. And kick the fun into high gear, with a 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox with Tiptronic®, offering automatic convenience, with the option to shift up or down like a stick.

Chrome Accents

The 2018 Passat is adorned with polished chrome on the exterior window surrounds, as well as side, and rear bumper accents, for a sleeker, more sophisticated look. We told you it wasn’t your average family sedan.

Power Sunroof

Available Power Sunroof. You can make your cabin feel even more spacious and airy, with a power sunroof. Take in a little or a lot of the skies above, either partially, or fully open with a simple turn of the dial. There’s even a small screen that pop ups up to keep the bugs out.

Heated Seats

Heated front and available heated rear seats. In the 2018 Passat, comfort taking a back seat is a good thing. In addition to heated front seats as standard equipment, available heated rear seats let your rear passengers choose their own comfort level.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Available Adaptive Cruise Control. You can choose to cruise, and let this system maintain consistent speed and distance from vehicles ahead, without having to touch the brake or gas pedals. Brakes are automatically applied when traffic slows, and your set speed resumes when traffic starts moving again.

Park Assist

Available Park Assist with Park Distance Control. Using ultrasonic sensors, Park Distance Control automatically engages when you’re in reverse, alerting you with audible signals when there’s something behind you up to 1.6 metres away.

Blind Spot Detection

Available Blind spot Detection with rear traffic alert. Changing lanes and backing up made easier – and safer. Radar and sonar detect vehicles and other obstacles, triggering driver alerts, automatically applying the brakes to help avoid potentially hazardous driving situations.

Front Assist

Available Front Assist with Autonomous Emergency Braking. Gaining on the vehicle in front of you too quickly? A built-in traffic monitor helps reduce your stopping distance, and can automatically apply the brakes at speeds less than 30 km/h.

Post Collision System

Automatic Post Collision Braking System. No one expects to get in an accident. But the 2018 Passat can help minimize the damage. If the system senses an impact, the brakes are automatically applied to help prevent another collision.

Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2018 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2018 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. The navigation system depends upon signals from the GPS network and is designed to provide you with suggested routes only. Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of Volkswagen Canada. Please rely on your individual judgment in determining whether or not to follow a suggested navigation route.
