Model Highlights

Passat models were completely redesigned in 2006, with more power across the line. The engine for the base and 2.0T models is a 200-horsepower, turbocharged, direct-injected 2.0L four-cylinder. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, with a six-speed automatic available. With the manual, the Passat can dash to 60 mph in only 6.9 seconds and has EPA fuel economy ratings of 23 city, 32 highway. 3.6L models come with a 280-horsepower, 3.6L narrow-angle V6 engine and a six-speed automatic and are capable of hitting 60 mph in only 6.6 seconds.

The Passat has an electromechanical power steering system that can compensate for crosswinds, while its standard anti-lock brakes with brake assist, have an automatic brake-wiping feature to help keep brakes performing at their best in rain or snow. The Passat also has an electronic push-button-activated parking brake which, on manual-transmission models, comes with a "hill-hold" feature. Automatic models come with steering-wheel paddle shifters for sporty driving. Stability control and an electronic differential locking system are standard on all models, while a 4Motion all-wheel drive system is available on 3.6L models.

All Passats also have a folding rear seatback with ski pass-through. There are several storage trays built into the instrument panel, and an umbrella holder in the driver's door. Wagon models have a large, open 21.3-cubic-foot cargo area that can increase to 61.1 cubic feet with the seats folded forward.

The base model comes with popular equipment like air conditioning, keyless entry, a trip computer, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. The 2.0T adds alloy wheels, a power driver's seat, and a split-folding back seat. The 3.6L includes 17-inch styled alloys, a sunroof, and a six-disc CD changer. There's also a Wolfsburg Edition sedan that brings most of the 3.6L standard equipment to the 2.0T.

Other options include a high-end, Danish-built Dynaudio sound system with eight speakers and six-disc in-dash changer, or a DVD-based navigation system. Larger, 18-inch alloy wheels, rear and side sunshades, or real walnut wood dash trim are also optional. A Sport Leather Package brings leather seats, power-adjustable front seats with memory, and a multi-function steering wheel with Tiptronic controls.

LED taillights are standard on the Passat, while bi-xenon headlamps are available, along with an adaptive front lighting system that can swivel the headlamps into a turn up to 15 degrees. It's supplemented by a cornering light that illuminated up to 35 degrees to the side.

Six air bags are standard on the Passat, including side-impact front-seat air bags and side-curtain air bags for front and rear outboard occupants. Rear-seat side air bags are optional.


Model News

Volkswagen introduced the completely redesigned Passat sedans for 2006, with improved interior space, a more powerful and more economical lineup of engines, and new six-speed transmissions. For 2007, new wagon variants, equipped much like the sedans, join the Passat line.

Twelve-way power seats are offered for the first time for 2007; sound systems now include an auxiliary power input, and an iPod adaptor is options.


Value Writeup

Volkswagen's 2007 Passat stands out in its segment as having a much more powerful standard four-cylinder engine than midsize rivals like the Accord and Camry, while its optional V6 rivals the most powerful engines offered by those competitors.

The wagon offers an especially roomy interior and cargo arrangement, and has few competitors in its midsize class.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
