Where Does the Volkswagen Passat Stack Up Against its Top Competitors? Tom Bush Volkswagen is Here to Answer!

When it comes to your next sedan, you need something with a lot more to offer than just good looks. There are plenty of luxury sedans out there, but they often fall short when it comes to practicality, fuel efficiency, and long-term resilience. As with other Volkswagen models, the new Passat gives you more practicality as a safe and useful sedan that you will be able to enjoy for many years to come. However, smart shoppers like you rightfully need a little more proof than that, which is why we here at Tom Bush Volkswagen went ahead and did some research to see how this excellent sedan stacks up against another worthy competitor in its class of mid-sized sedans: the Honda Accord. Once we show you all of the best features of the Volkswagen Passat, you will be able to make an informed decision as to whether or not this mid-sized sedan is right for you. Our Volkswagen dealership is located here in Jacksonville, FL and we are proudly serving the Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida as well.


The Volkswagen Passat is more than just a good-looking and stylish sedan, it also has a great deal of capability and fuel efficiency to offer over other sedans of its class, like the Honda Accord. The Passat holds 18.5 gallons of fuel over the 14.8-gallon fuel capacity of the Honda Accord, which provides a noticeable difference in fuel efficiency when commuting to and from Saint Augustine. The Volkswagen Passat also has a total cargo payload capacity of 1,014 pounds and can tow up to 1,000 pounds, which can come in handy when you need to bring small U-Haul trailers or collapsible mobile tents with you to Orange Park. The payload capability for the Honda Accord is unlisted and this mid-sized sedan is not recommended for towing.

Not only does the Volkswagen Passat start out at the more affordable price, the warranties provided by the Volkswagen brand keep your investment protected for much longer, giving you access to a great deal of maintenance solutions when you need them the most, such as oil changes and tune-ups.
