With features like push-button start, heated front seats, best-in-class rear legroom and more, the all-new 2012 Passat is better than ever with a starting MSRP of only $19,995. Cars.com called the car "cavernous" and "comfy." The new Passat was built in America, for Americans, at the new Volkswagen facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. With its more competitive pricing, the Passat beats the competition with longer no-cost maintenance, a bigger wheel base and more.
On top of all that, people can't stop saying nice things about the 2012 Passat: First, the IIHS named it a 2011 Top Safety Pick; and most recently, Motor Trend named it their 2012 Car of the Year!
