2018 Volkswagen Passat GT
After years of tinkering, engineers have given the 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT some real guts.
Based on the R-Line trim, it adds 20 plus sporty accents from front to back and inside. But the GT goes a step further, crouching 0.6-inch lower and equipped with a sport-tuned suspension… for a more solid feel. Steering is light and quick. The eager 280-horsepower 3.6-liter VR6 makes the GT something of a bargain while the 6-speed Tiptronic with steering wheel- mounted paddle shifters never misses a beat. A throaty exhaust caps off the sporting flare.
On sale now, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT starts under $30,000.
