The Style of the Volkswagen Passat Stands Out from the Sedan Crowd

The sedan category of vehicles has remained one of the most popular among drivers from Grand Rapids to Holland, MI and beyond for many years because few classes can match the convenience, efficiency, and style that they offer. However, it has gotten harder to tell the various models apart as everything from the features to the driving feel to the exterior styling seems oddly similar among competitors.

A sharp design for the outside and interior help the Passat stand out on any street while you and your passengers enjoy the thoughtful features and immaculate engineering of this sedan that is unlike any others. To show off what exactly makes it different, we've highlighted some of the aspects that puts the Volkswagen Passat ahead of sedan competitors like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Sonata, which you'll see below!


Volkswagen Passat vs. Toyota Camry

  • The Volkswagen Passat is the taller of the two models, which means you won't have to bend down as much when getting in, but it has similar length and width as the Toyota Camry. However, the cabin of the Passat has more cubic feet of passenger room, which shows in its advantage in leg and shoulder room for each row, and it has a larger trunk than the Camry.
  • Kentwood value shoppers will find that the Volkswagen Passat has a lower starting price and comes with a warranty that has you covered for more miles than the Toyota Camry, and the base model offers features like blind spot monitoring that the Camry's base model doesn't.
  • For passenger entertainment, the Volkswagen Passat offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, to make accessing mobile apps when on the road easier, and a premium audio system from Fender®, none of which the Toyota Camry is available with.

Volkswagen Passat vs. Honda Accord

  • All it takes is one test drive to see that the driving feel of the Volkswagen Passat is miles ahead of the Honda Accord: literally. Wyoming, MI drivers will find that the Passat's V6 engine has much more horsepower than any Accord engine while the dual-clutch automatic delivers a much smoother ride.
  • Many drivers love advanced safety features like forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, but we know they're not for everyone. That's why they remain an option on the base model of the Passat, but car shoppers can't remove them from the Honda Accord.
  • With available two-tone leatherette seats, interior ambient lighting, and an overall better design, the cabin of the Volkswagen Passat feels of higher quality than that of the Accord.


Volkswagen Passat vs. Hyundai Sonata

  • Again, if you want performance out of your daily driver, the Volkswagen Passat with a V6 engine and dual-clutch transmission delivers a more powerful, graceful ride than any Hyundai Sonata.
  • Rear seat passengers will thank Allendale, MI drivers for buying the Passat as it has available heated seats for the rear and more leg and shoulder room than the Hyundai Sonata, which only offers heated seats for the front.
  • The safety packages of the two are similar with both offering blind spot monitoring, parking aids, and lane departure warning features, but only the Passat has a crash response system that helps drivers in the event of an accident, which may prevent further harm to passengers.
