2020 Passat a class apart


Volkswagen’s new 2020 Passat comes with three offerings of different variants and prices to suit a wide range of customers.

The impressive and bold new redesign offers an impactful sedan.

Over eight years ago, Volkswagen completely overhauled the midsize sedan to include more interior space and modern comforts, combined with the company’s signature fun-to-drive nature.

Building on this success, the new Passat of today offers more of what matters to the modern customer – a bold design, upgraded technology and enhanced access to convenience and driver-assistance features.

“The sedan market plays an important role in this region,” said Volkswagen Bahrain general manager Felix Miranda.

“Last year, the previous Passat model made up over 25 per cent of Volkswagen Bahrain’s total sales, highlighting both the importance of sedans in our market and that this model in particular is a popular choice for customers and businesses alike.

“We are delighted to welcome a new and upgraded Passat – one of Volkswagen’s key iconic vehicles,” he added.

“A model which has long resonated with buyers for its combination of comfort, reliability and driving dynamics, and which allows our customers to drive a premium German-engineered car at an affordable price.

“This new model has stepped up the style factor and upgraded the technology to make it even more attractive.

“In addition, Volkswagen has made desirable convenience and driver-assistance features more accessible.”


While the 2020 Passat retains the underpinnings of the previous model, it has been completely restyled.

A dynamic coupe-like roofline, dramatic ‘tornado’ line, and dominant grille give the Passat a bold new look – at once, elegant and sporty.

Standard slim LED headlights and taillights, along with more prominent Passat badging that runs the width of the rear boot, gives the car a more premium look.

The 2020 Passat will be offered in a range of variants starting from the classic trend-line model which has been upgraded to include features such as eco-LED headlights and LED taillights as standard, to the comfort-line model with 17-inch alloy wheels and leather steering wheel, up to the high-line which comes with 18-inch alloy wheels and leather seats as standard.

Inside, the Passat combines a sophisticated new design and upgraded technology with a spacious cabin that made the outgoing model popular. The cockpit features a horizontal design, incorporating air vents that flow across the dash in a style reminiscent of premium models.

A new, more contemporary instrument panel has been fitted, along with a new glass-covered infotainment touchscreen.

Complementing the new interior design are new colours and premium materials.

Every Passat also comes with standard Volkswagen car-net app-connect technology, which integrates compatible smartphones with the three major platforms – Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink – making select apps accessible from the infotainment screen.
