Reviews for 2012 Volkswagen Passat

Overall Rating

4.3 out of 5 (20 reviews)

Basic styling and no frills, but drives well and gets great gas mileage.

So many other cars on the market with better value and more stylish.


  • Fuel Economy: Have been getting around 31mpg average with mix of city/highway
  • Dashboard: Very sleek and not cheap looking.

2012 VW Passat

Its a larger sedan with just as many features as our BMW for about $30k less. Good gas mileage, nice style, lots of space in the interior and trunk. I LOVE the touch screen GPS/Stereo which our BMW of the same year doesn't have.


  • Interior Space: lots of leg and headroom. someone 6'5" or taller can fit comfortably in the front seat
  • Value: GREAT cost vs quality value when compared with our other car (a new BMW 5-series) that has similar features
  • Cargo Space: awesome trunk space. I can fit anything in there.


  • Cabin Noise: tiny bit noisier than i like

As a single father of two, I wanted a nice car that got good gas mileage without being cramped. The Passat has a great look with a powerful engine, my version has great techie tools with Bluetooth and a cool sound system. The controls are intuitive and just overall it's a smooth, easy ride. Great car! No complaints.


  • Styling: The look of this car is sharp and eye catching.
  • Fuel Economy: I'm always amazed at how many miles I get per tank. In the 30s on the highway.
  • Power: When I push the gas pedal, it goes and goes fast.
