At first glance, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT looks like a souped-up Passat SEL, but added features such as the R-Line® bumper, honeycomb grille, GT badging, and red accent lines take it from sophisticated to sport. Work your way around the new Passat GT and you will find a black roof that is complemented by black mirror caps, black window trim, and door trim. Other notable exterior features include two-tone 19-inch “Tornado” wheels, red-painted brake calipers, and a black spoiler. For added interior design, you will also find piano black trimming and carbon fiber-optic décor.

So, besides its design, what makes the new Passat GT different from the rest? For starters, it comes standard with a 3.6-liter VR6® engine that has a horsepower rating of 280 and a torque rating of 258 lb-ft. The engine is then mated to a six-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and paddle shifters. To handle the extra power, this sedan is outfitted with a sport suspension system to give it a more planted stance. Finally, even with all that power, the new Passat GT is able to get up to 28 miles per gallon of gas on the highway.
