1995 Volkswagen Passat Overview

The Volkswagen Passat got a sporty new look for 1995, with an integrated rear spoiler and a refashioned front grille. It was available in two trim packages. The GLX, available for the entire model year, came in sedan and wagon versions, both driven by a 2.8-liter, 172-hp V6 engine. Later in the year, the entry-level Passat GLS was introduced. Available only as a sedan, it came with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that generated 115 hp.

A five-speed manual overdrive transmission was standard on both the GLX and GLS versions. A four-speed automatic was available as an option.

As befitting its position as the high-end model, the GLX came with a complete package of standard features. Dual airbags and manual three-point seatbelts were new for '95. Other features included power brakes, power windows, power steering, power door locks, power heated mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning with a dust and pollen filter, a multifunction trip computer, 15-inch wheels, anti-lock brakes, and an anti-theft alarm system.

Though the GLS was stripped down a bit, it still came with air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, airbags, and an AM/FM/cassette audio system.

Overall, drivers' reactions to the 1995 Volkswagen Passat were positive, though frequent minor problems were reported. The car's handling, roominess, sporty new look (even for the wagon), and gas mileage were reported as positive points. Other drivers noted that some interior parts tended to break too quickly, and cited expensive repairs as among the negatives.
