The 2017 Volkswagen Passat combines the best in simple, standard, and safety technology. Combine that with its exemplary crash test scores and it’s hard to resist a used model of this sedan.
This Volkswagen comes with some pretty impressive standard features, such as a rearview camera and a cornucopia of airbags. Also included is the advanced post-collision system, which automatically applies the brakes to prevent a secondary accident.
According to The Car Connection, visibility is actually one of this VW’s strongest safety attributes. Extra slim roof pillars, fold-down rear headrests, and expansive glass windows grant the driver a nearly perfect 360 view of his or her surroundings.
But this sedan doesn’t just talk the talk. The folks at the NHTSA praised the 2017 model, giving it a five-star rating for overall protection. More noteworthy is the Top Safety Pick award from the perfectionists at the IIHS. This discerning panel of judges also gave the Passat an “Advanced” score for optional front-crash avoidance technology.
