Vehicle highlight for 2015 Volkswagen Passat.

Back up camera, Bluetooth, automatic locks, great sound, good on gas, roomy back seats, great cup holders, big trunk, many cup holder in door. Smooth drive, gas tracker, sport drive option acceleration and handling are 2015 Passat strong suits with good power for passing and merging in all engines and a well-tuned chassis that nicely balances a smooth ride and good handling. V-6-equipped sedans, in particular, possess impressive acceleration, which make it one of the quickest family sedans on the market.

Love the steering lights!

It can be a little bit pricey when it comes to maintenance but it is been a very great vehicle overall. The gas mileage is reliable, there's a spacious cabin & trunk, big windows with clear views all around! The backup camera also comes in handy a lot of times when parking in the city. There's also this really nice feature on the headlights that steer the light towards where you steer your wheels at nighttime! Helpful little tool!

- Vee L

Great gas mileage. Drove to Florida and back with 2 full tanks of gas.

Is a great vehicle. No problems so far. It is really good on gas mileage. Drove from Nashville Tennessee to Destin Florida on a whole tank with a stop at Prattville Alabama. I love this car. I would 100% recommend the Volkswagen Passat 2015 limited edition to anyone looking for a good reliable car. I got mine at cool springs hallmark Volkswagen in franklin Tennessee.
