2017 Volkswagen Passat in Little Rock AR

The Passat and Fusion form very fair competition with each other, as they are similar in engine size, efficiency and safety ratings. However, where the Passat really shines is in its power and available technology. Under the hood, the Passat offers up to 184 lb-ft of torque from its base engine, and inside it wraps you in leather-stitched comfort. If you want to listen to your favorite songs, you can do so through premium quality Fender® speakers that the Fusion can’t match. The Passat is also Apple CarPlay compatible, and the Car-Net interface allows you to navigate, media stream and communicate hands-free. All this, combined with a 5-star NHTSA crash test rating, gives the 2017 Volkswagen Passat in Little Rock AR the upper hand in most any duel.
