2018 Volkswagen Passat GT in a warehouse

Based on the R-Line® trim, the brand-new 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT is the fast and furious Passat that you have been waiting for. Not only does it feature Volkswagen’s special 3.6-liter VR6® engine, it also comes completely decked out from head to toe with performance-inspired exterior and interior design elements. A lowered sport suspension system gives it a more secure stance and cements the aggressive look, while a standard six-speed DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters give you smooth shifting and more control over your drive. Take a look below as we explore the exterior and interior enhancements on the 2018 Passat GT!

Being featured in either Pure White, Reflex Silver, Platinum Grey, or Deep Black, the new Passat GT is what happens when you add as many sporty features and accent to the standard Passat as possible. For example, every Passat GT comes with standard LED headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights, and blackened LED taillights. Work your way around the vehicle and you will see a honeycomb grille, a black roof, black mirror caps and black trim. Take a glance below and you'll see two-tone 19-inch “Tornado” wheels that are accentuated with red-painted brake calipers. The look is finished off with GT badging and a black rear spoiler.

Inside the cabin, the sporty trend continues with a piano black center console and carbon fiber optic décor. Aluminum GT-badged sills and a black headliner make you feel like you are in a racecar, while black leatherette seating surfaces with Moonrock Gray inserts and contrast stitching hug you in all the right places. Other notable features include an 8-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control, and a 6.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®.
