The 2018 Volkswagen Passat keeps true to the look that it has seen in its current generation, with only a few notable changes for the new model year. A new GT trim is now available with 19-inch alloy wheels, 2-tone leatherette seats, R-Line front and rear bumpers, grille accents, GT badging and a 280 horsepower V6 engine. Also for 2018, the 1.8L engine is replaced with a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder as its base model engine. The warranty has been lengthened to 6-years or 72,000 miles.
