2017 Volkswagen Passat Oneonta NY
How do you improve a vehicle that’s already so close to perfection? That was the issue facing the 2017 Volkswagen Passat. The Passat was completely redesigned for the 2016 model year with fresh sheetmetal, a revised interior and new connectivity and driver assistance features. That means there wasn’t much need for improvements in the 2017 model year. But that’s not stopping select 2017 Volkswagen Passat models from getting new standard features that raise the bar even higher.
Those new standard features are the biggest story concerning the 2017 VW Passat. Improvements like advanced driver assistance systems, along with other safety, connectivity and entertainment features, are now standard on lower trim Passat models. That means you don’t have to pay more to get the features you really want in your midsize sedan. It’s just one more way Volkswagen is making the best more affordable than the rest.
