The 2017 Volkswagen Passat is Here!

The wait is over! At long last, the first of the 2017 Volkswagen models has arrived here at Tom Wood Volkswagen, your trusted VW dealership in Indianapolis, IN. The 2017 Volkswagen Passat has the honor of being the first 2017 Volkswagen model to make its way onto our lot, and our customers are already excited about this new vehicle. We recently profiled the excellent 2016 Volkswagen Passat here on our blog, so keep reading to learn about what’s new for the 2017 model!

The 2017 Volkswagen Passat is available in four different trim levels, and two engines are available. The first is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for more power, go with the available 3.6-liter V6 engine, which is good for 280 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Compared to last year, you’ll notice some changes to both the inside and outside, with revised headlight styling and an updated center console.

Just like last year, the 2017 Volkswagen Passat has a perfect five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But what’s new for 2017 is the fact that a forward collision warning system is now standard across all models. This system alerts you with sound and light when it senses that you might be heading towards a collision, and will even automatically apply the brakes in the event that a collision is imminent! All of us here at Tom Wood Volkswagen are happy to see that Volkswagen took their commitment to driver safety up a notch this year.  

If the 2017 Volkswagen Passat is any indication, this is going to be an awesome year for Volkswagen. Stop by today to check it out!
