2008 Volkswagen Passat

After its heralded return in 2007, the VW Passat didn't change too much for 2008 besides a new interior for the Turbo and a more upscale design.  This full-size sedan comes in 5 trims.  In addition, the '08 Passat has 4 doors and seats 5.  

The Turbo trim comes with a 2.0 L, 200 hp I4 engine while the VR6 4Motion gives you the most bang for your buck with a 3.6 L, 280 hp V6 engine.  As for transmission, you'll have your pick between 6 speed manual and 6 speed automatic.  All Passats feature a leather steering and side shades.

Overall, reviewers like the low price for a sedan that resembles the Mercedes CLS.  The powertrain selection looks solid, although you'd expect a full fleet of V6's in a competitive sedan.  In any case, look for the 2008 VW Passat to make waves with sedan fans looking for a little extra flair.
