In 2012, the Passat was named the Motor Trend Car of the year, coming out on top during one of the automotive industry’s strongest years.

During that year, the Passat broke the Guinness World Record for the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid car, demonstrating the incredible fuel efficiency of the Passat. Today, the Passat continued to dazzle experts and drivers alike with a highway fuel economy of up to 38 mpg!
This year, the Passat went on to receive numerous awards. Chief among them is the title of European Car of the Year. This award highlighted the Passat’s lightweight frame, it’s wealth of powertrain options (including plug-in and high-performance models) and its interior space.
