4 Things to Know About the 2020 Passat Including Top Notch Safety features

SPONSORED

If you're considering trading in your old ride, or are in the market for your first vehicle, take a look at the new 2020 Passat from Volkswagen.  This well-styled vehicle offers a wide variety of thoughtful, high-tech features that appeal to drivers of all ages. Here are 4 things to know about the new 2020 Passat:

1.  The 2020 Passat comes in four styles:  the S, the SE, the R-Line Sport version, and the top-of-the-line SEL.  Each level comes with standard features, and with certain options available on each model.  It's easy to pick your starting price point and add upgrades, if desired, as your budget allows.

2.  There are an incredible number of options available to customize your new Passat to meet your needs.  Dual-zone climate control, two rear USB charging ports, heated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and keyless access, among other options, are available for creating the car of your dreams.  A 6.3" touchscreen sound system offers voice control and lets you personalize your music experience.

3.  The safety features are awesome.  Passat's safety cage construction lets front and rear crumple zones absorb energy in case of a crash, and the rigid safety cage distributes forces away from passengers.  The Intelligent Crash Response System turns off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and activates the hazard lights in the event of a collision that deploys the airbags.  Additional available driver assistance features include Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Assist, Front Assist, Rear Traffic Alert, Park Assist, and Electronic Stability Control. All of these features combined make it one of the safest vehicles on the road for you, your teenager or other family members states Damian Gabrus, Manager of Hawk Volkswagen in Joliet.

4.  Long road trips will be a breeze.  The available Adaptive Cruise Control helps the car maintain a preset speed and distance from the vehicle in front of you.  If the car in front speeds up or slows down, the sensors detect the change and your car adapts to the speed.
