Overview of 2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI SEL Premium By Eric Tallberg
As the crème-de-la-crème of Volkswagen’s reworked Passat lineup, the 2012 Passat TDI SEL Premium pretty much has it all. Longer, leaner and, with the new sport-tuned suspension, a bit more agile, this 5-passenger, family-oriented midsize sedan loads up the exterior with 18-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof and heated power-adjustable outside mirrors. Inside, leather upholstery and a leather and wood steering wheel, as well as simulated woodgrain accents give an obligatory nod toward posh. Then there are the standard heated, power-adjustable front seats, remote power door locks, power windows, universal remote garage door opener, dual-zone climate control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering with steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. Memory for three drivers' settings is also standard, as are remote engine start, Bluetooth hands-free technology and a hard-drive-based navigation system. The highly touted Fender premium audio system, with an MP3-capable single-CD player and 9 speakers, complemented by satellite radio and a memory card slot, is also delivered with this likeable VW sedan. Exterior options include a unique Passat lip spoiler, while a number of cargo organizers are also available.
A brand-new, direct-injected 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) turbodiesel engine powers the Passat TDI SEL Premium for 2012. Managed by the standard 6-speed auto-manual transmission with selectable sport mode, this four-banger lays down 236 lb-ft of torque and is estimated at 30 mpg city/40 highway, very respectable numbers for its class.
Standard safety equipment in the 2012 Passat TDI SEL Premium includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), front head-restraint whiplash protection, front and rear head airbags and front side-mounted airbags. Additional protection is afforded by standard daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, turn-signal-integrated mirrors, a remote antitheft alarm and a post-collision safety system.
This overview covers the TDI SEL Premium trim only.
