For the 2009 Passat lineup, the Komfort trim remains for both the sedan and wagon. Gone are the Turbo, Lux, VR6, and VR6 4Motion trim levels. The Komfort Passats are powered by VW's 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder. New exterior colors for 2009 include Island Gray Metallic, Cobalt Blue Metallic, and White Gold Metallic. Adaptive front lighting has been dropped. Volkswagen's electronic stabilization program (ESP) is now standard.
Class-leading performance; extensive safety features including rear side-impact airbags; the four-cylinder model's fuel efficiency; the wagon's cargo space.
The 2009 Volkswagen Passat's standard turbocharged 4-cylinder engine gives it acceleration on par with many V6 mid-sized models, while it also delivers impressive fuel efficiency of 32 mpg on the highway. Rear side air bags, a feature not widely available on mid-sized sedans, are available as an option. And for those seeking more cargo space, the wagon, with its stellar mileage and cargo-hauling ability, is a great alternative to sport-utility vehicles.
