The Passat delivers excellent safety features, sporty performance and an upscale interior for its class, but spotty reliability history is a concern.
The 2007 Volkswagen Passat is described as a competent road performer with excellent safety features, a streamlined exterior and upscale interior styling. “Entertaining to drive, boasting a beautifully trimmed cabin and equipped with upscale features, the 2007 Volkswagen Passat is one of our favorite choices for a midsize sedan or wagon,” says Edmunds. Another reviewer feels the Passat falls short of the mark. “You have to get the balance of performance, comfort and price just right to win a spot in the narrow space between family sedan and luxury car,” says the. “The Passat misses due to a combination of price, ergonomics and rather bland looks and performance.”
Overall, reviewers are impressed with the Passat’s interior and exterior styling. “The Passat is one of the best-looking Volkswagens in a long time, and the interior has a high level of refinement,” says MSN. However, many reviewers question the price and reliability of the vehicle. “If its driving dynamics or design distinctions don’t make an impression on you, there’s little reason to choose the Passat over benchmarks like the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry,”.
