The newest version of the Volkswagen Passat comes with a sleek new look that calls to mind an air of sophistication.  A bold grille sets the stage for the Torpedo-shaped body line.  The rear quarter-panel and trunk lid show off sharp creases for an aerodynamic ride.  Slimmer LED head and taillights and a new wheel design present an imposing figure on the darkened streets of Orange Park.  For good measure, the 2020 Passat includes distinctive badging to set it apart from every other car on the road.

Now you move inside, where you'll find even more updates, like a glass-covered touchscreen for the infotainment system.  Drivers now have a choice of luscious Nappa leather upholstery and heated seats for your rear passengers.
