How’s the Drive?

Easily weave your way through the Downtown Los Angeles streets with the right systems under the hood:

  • Fusion Power and Mileage: The Fusion gives you a few engines to choose from but you’ll likely find yourself choosing between mileage and power. You can expect up to 34 mpg on the highway if you don’t mind staying at the lower end of the power options.

  • Passat Power and Mileage: The 2017 Passat makes things easier with two optimal engines. The 1.8L turbocharged engine gives you 170 hp and 34 mpg on the highway**. The V6 option gives you 280 hp and 28 mpg on the highway**.

Mobile Entertainment

Stay connected and entertained no matter how long your Los Angeles commute is with the best mobile entertainment systems:

  • Fusion SYNC 3: The SYNC 3 system gives you a central touchscreen so you can control your cabin systems and entertainment. Some trims have SYNC Connect as an add-on so you can connect your mobile device.
  • Passat Compatibility and Fender Sound: Connect your mobile device with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and control your favorite apps from the central touchscreen. Plus, Fender Premium Speakers help you hear everything with 400 watts of power.

Safety Features

Keep your peace of mind on the West Hollywood streets with the optimal combination of advanced safety technologies:
