VW Passat B6 is a front-wheel drive 5-seater car after facelift, a representative of the sixth generation. It is available in sedan and wagon body styles.

The design has not changed much, and the advantages include a wide range of powerful powertrains, a spacious interior and high-quality interior materials. The car is available with all-wheel drive and balanced steering. The disadvantages include insufficient noise insulation.

The main competitors of the popular sedan are Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Mazda 6, and Toyota Camry.

Previously, the trims were distinguished by the characteristics of the power units. In 2008, the approach was changed and the models were renamed accordingly: Comfort line, Trendline, Highline, Blue Motion, R36, Sportline and R-Line Edition.
