    2016 VW Passat SE 1.8L TSI with the 6-speed AT - $27,100 to start including $820 D&H provides owners a 25/38 mpg city/highway rating.

    VWs refreshed 2016 Passat with the 1.8L TSI took top honors in’s Midsize Sedan Challenge. Up against eight of the most popular 2016 midsized sedans available in North America, the Passat won with its spacious comfort, safety, available VW Car-Net App-Connect technology, and most of all, its best-in-class fun-to-drive nature.

    To make it into the 2016 Midsize Sedan Challenge, each vehicle had to have an AT, an EPA estimate of at least 28 mpg combined and have an MSRP of less than $28,000. Vehicles were evaluated by a panel of expert judges and an Atlanta couple in the market for a new sedan on a 220-mile road course looking at overall ride, acceleration, handling, braking, features, cargo space, technology and more.


    The tests resulted in the following ranking:
    1. 2016 Volkswagen Passat
    2. 2016 Kia Optima
    3. 2016 Chevrolet Malibu
    4. 2016 Hyundai Sonata
    5. 2016 Honda Accord
    6. 2016 Subaru Legacy
    7. 2016 Toyota Camry
    8. 2016 Mazda6
    9. 2016 Nissan Altima
