The new 2016 Volkswagen Passat recently took home top honors in Cars.com’s Midsize Sedan Challenge! The Passat won judges’ hearts with its spaciousness, safety features, available VW Car-Net® App-Connect technology, and most of all, its fun-to-drive nature.
To be considered for the Best Midsize Sedan Award, the 2016 Passat was put to the test against eight of the most popular 2016 models. Vehicles were evaluated by a panel of expert judges and a couple looking for their next new car. The judges test-drove the vehicles on a 220-mile road course and rated the overall ride, acceleration, handling, braking, features, cargo space, and technology of the vehicle.
“The Passat came in first place with both our expert judges and in-market shoppers,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s editor-in-chief. “This midsize sedan is a refreshed version of the Passat that won Cars.com’s Best of 2012 award; it’s still tremendously roomy and for 2016 got a ton of tech upgrades like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. In addition to the roominess, tech and safety, the standout feature of the Passat is its driving ability. Everyone who drove it unanimously agreed, the Passat is plain old fun to drive.”
