In a head-to-head comparison, the 2015 Volkswagen Passat is a clear choice for an excellent mid-sized sedan, offering more standard and available features than the Nissan Altima, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry LE.

The new 2015 Passat comes with features that expensive imports from Japan and Germany do not. From the Daytime Running Lights to the climate control system with rear passenger ventilation, the 2015 Passat offers more features than the competition.

Powered by a 1.8L inline four-cylinder turbo that makes 170hp, the 2015 Passat from Chapman VW of Tucson gets an estimated 24mpg in the city and 36mpg on the highway. The infotainment system features a 5.0″ touchscreen, HD Radio and MP3 and WMA-compatible CD player with the available Technology Package. LED taillights, a self-dimming rearview mirror, and safety features such as Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution, Engine Braking Assist and Anti-slip Regulation are standard safety features, to keep you and your precious cargo safe.

Tiny fingers pinched in the window are a thing of the past with the Passat’s power windows with pinch protection, and the Side Curtain Protection head airbags are included for both the front and rear. LATCH anchors easily secure child safety seats, while the airbags feature Passenger Occupant Detection. The 2015 Volkswagen Passat is clearly a leader in safety and innovation, making it the perfect choice over the 2015 Altima S, 2015 Honda Accord and the 2014.5 Toyota Camry LE.

Here is a rundown of all the 2015 Volkswagen Passat has to offer:

Technology

The 2015 Passat makes technology intuitive and convenient. Bluetooth with audio streaming connects you to your family, friends, and your own music effortlessly. The available touchscreen navigation system can help you find where soccer practice is or it can direct you to the newest restaurant in town. And of course, you’ll feel connected in all the most important ways with available Volkswagen Car-Net connected car features.

Interior Room

In a world that keeps getting smaller, the interior of the Passat stays nice and roomy. The cabin seats five adults comfortably with best-in-class rear legroom that inspires envy in other midsize sedans. It also has cargo space that can handle strollers, enough luggage for a family vacation, or the odd-size new addition to the family room. Roomy enough everyone and their stuff. That’s the 2015 Passat.

Carefree Maintenance Program

When you purchase a 2015 Volkswagen Passat, you’ll receive one year/10,000 mile (whichever comes first) of no-charge scheduled maintenance. You’ll receive service from factory-trained VW technicians who only use Genuine Volkswagen parts on your vehicle. Quality you can trust. It must be a Volkswagen.

Travel Tech

Hitting the road has never been more enjoyable than in the 2015 Volkswagen Passat. Take hold of the leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel, which features controls for the audio and vehicle information systems, as well as cruise control settings. The RNS 510 Premium Navigation System with touchscreen helps you find points of interest, motels and gas stations, while the Fender Premium Audio System, boasting 400 watts, nine speakers and a subwoofer, creates a rock and roll experience like no other audio system can. No matter where you go, traveling from point A to B is more enjoyable than ever.

Adaptive Safety Technology

In addition to seven active stability systems, the 2015 VW Passat includes adaptive safety technology such as the Intelligent Crash Response System, which automatically unlocks doors, turns off the fuel pump and turns on the hazard lights when the airbags deploy in the passenger cabin. Adaptive air bags detect if the front passenger is heavy enough to withstand airbag deployment; and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System lets you know when air is needed in your tires, to help avoid uneven tread wear and other tire inflation-related problems.

Performance

When we set out to redefine the midsize sedan, power was a strong place to start. And the Passat has that in spades. From turbocharged engines to increased horsepower and impressive driving dynamics, you’ll feel German-engineered performance every time you get behind the wheel. It’s the kind of driving experience that might make you go in search of curvier roads or at least consider taking the long way home.

Car-Net

Volkswagen Car-Net provides a seamless link between your car and your iPhone®, Android® device, or computer, so you can stay synced and supported on the go. VW Car-Net keeps you connected with your VW even when you’re apart.

Safe and Secure

The Safe and Secure feature offers that extra dose of security by supporting you every step of the way. With Automatic Crash Notification, Roadside Assistance, and Manual Emergency Call, now your car always has your back.

Family Guardian

The Family Guardian features include Boundary Alerts and Speed Alerts. You can keep track of how family members are driving your VW so you can have some predictability in an unpredictable world
