Enjoy the available Climatronic® dual-zone climate control, so all passengers can experience the perfect temperature. Available V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces not only look great, but they are also simple to maintain.


Engineers of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat recognized the fact that staying connected behind the wheel is important for many drivers. That is why you will find that the Passat is packed with innovative tech features to improve your daily drives around Marina del Rey.

  • 6.3″ touchscreen sound system: Play your favorite tunes with ease. There is also voice control capability.
  • Remote start: Opt for this available feature, and you can ensure your vehicle is at the perfect temperature before stepping inside the cabin.
  • Apple CarPlay: Your iPhone can connect to your Passat for access to Apple Maps, Siri, iTunes, and so much more.
  • Android Auto: If you have a compatible Android phone, you can easily access Google Maps, send a text using voice control, or listen to your favorite podcasts.


Safety is a top concern for many Santa Monica drivers, and the 2020 Volkswagen Passat definitely delivers. The Passat was designed with a rigid safety cage to keep passengers protected in the event of a collision. To help prevent collisions from occurring, the Passat features a rearview camera and an Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.
