Volkswagen Unveils Sporty New Passat GT

March 15th, 2018 by

2018 VW Passat GT

Our VW dealer serving Benton is excited to announce the near arrival of the Volkswagen Passat GT, which is the sleeker, faster, and more powerful cousin of the fan-favorite and family-friendly VW Passat. With more than 20 different enhancements to both the interior and exterior, VW drivers are sure to go crazy over this attractive new option.

Performance To Excite Benton Area Drivers

The GT trim will be powered by Volkswagen’s 3.6-liter VR6® engine, making this a monster under the hood. Clocking in at 280 horsepower at 6,200 rpm, it makes your ride power-driven while still maintaining the luxury comfort that VW has become so widely known for. Don’t sleep on its fuel economy either–at 19 city and 28 highway miles per gallon, this is an impressively efficient sports car that won’t cost you an arm and a leg to drive.

The powerful engine is mated to a six-speed automatic DSG® transmission with Tiptronic®, which gives drivers the ability to take the ride into their own hands with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters so you can unleash the beast.

Don’t forget to check out our new VW specials for Benton area shoppers so you can take full advantage of the raw power VW has to offer.

Exterior Features

Just taking a glance at the Passat GT gives you an idea of the aggressive new style that it brings to VW’s lineup. It starts with a great first impression, making LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights standard. The honeycomb grille, GT badge, and red accent line coupled with the sports suspension that brings it lower to the ground makes it look eager to go at all times.

The GT has a side profile to die for, sporting a black roof with black mirror caps and black window and door trim. The wheels are two-tone 19” “Tornado” wheels, overlaying a red brake caliper that is a callback to Volkswagen’s performance heritage.

Around the back of the sporty sedan are more black-accented parts with the spoiler and blackened LED taillights. A black bumper trim with a double sports exhaust is the last thing anyone will see before they’re left in the dust.

Interior Features

VW combined sporty interior trim with high-tech features that are sure to please even the most earnest thrill seekers. The piano black center console and vent trim sits in the middle of the carbon fiber optic decor, giving the cabin a futuristic look.

Driver comfort and convenience comes first in the GT, with standard black leatherette seats and Moonrock Gray inserts to make the interior pop and other standard features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, dual-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control, and heated side mirrors.

Sitting in front of the driver is the 6.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display, controlling the Bluetooth® streaming, Voice Control, and the VW Car-Net® App-Connect technology that offers compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ so your phone can be displayed in front of your eyes.
