The 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT boasts a sporty design, a powerful engine, superb driving dynamics, and many exclusive features. The new Passat GT is also a great choice for commuting to work, with it recently earning the CarGurus’® Top Cars For Your Commute honor.
2018 VW Passat GT and CarGurus’® Top Cars For Your Commute Award
In naming the 2018 Passat GT to their Top Cars For Your Commute list, CarGurus highlighted its powerful engine and high fuel economy. The editors at CarGurus considered multiple factors for the list, including vehicle efficiency, horsepower, comfort and alternative-fuel options.
“The GT represents the best of what Passat has to offer. Its V6 engine is powerful, yet efficient, it sits low for better driving dynamics and the interior and exterior styling is amped up for a sportier look. We think it’s a great choice for a daily driver and are honored that CarGurus agrees.” – Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and After Sales for Volkswagen of America
