Handling Ranked 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL worse.
"Because Im used to it, the Passat feels nimble to me. The Altima reminded me of my old Geo Prizm and was not quite as engaging."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL worse.
"The standard technology in the SE is sufficient, and with the tech package, outstanding. Ride is firmer and simply more fun in the Passat than the Altima."

2015 Volkswagen Passat Reviews

Love This Car... By dpkdo731

I like the fuel efficiency, cost and stylishness of the vehicle. It is sporty, but does not lose its ability to be professional and classy. The 45-50MPG is fantastic and the Diesel TDI will go fore... Read More

Made For America With German Engineering. By Pal_venkat

This Is A Surprisingly Good Ride. By BobSteveVA

I've been a BMW driver for about 12 years and loved the 5 series I drove. After not being able to get a manual transmission and reaching my max to spend for a set of wheels, I decided to stay German b... Read More

Best Diesel Car/sedan For Your Money. Period. By 5DDFL

Everything about it is fantastic! Owning this has sold me on the TDI brand for life. Having the Diesel engine is a bit more expensive so I wouldn't suggest buying a new one unless you plan on drivin... Read More

A Fuel-sipping Champion. By Beta_400

This is a terrific all around family car. The seating is huge, it is fuel efficient, and handles well. The design is spartan and timeless. The only thing I've noticed over time is that the paint doesn... Read More

Solid Family Car By ElephantMovers

I loved the style and handling, I was worried about the breaking system and reports about the car being slow to stop, but have had no problems so far. The back seat area is great for our kids. The hea... Read More

Love It By JS1828

One of the best vehicles I've driven. The antenna system seems to act up during cold weather as the receiver has to warm up before the signal goes to 100% during warm up it only receives at about 65% ... Read More

3d Passat And No Wonder! By nedm

This 2010 is truly the last of the good performance Passats. VW blew it with the underpowered 2012+. It is simply a blast to drive. The 2.0L turbo w/ 200 hp is amazingly responsive and FAST! No wonder... Read More
