The 2016 Passat was redesigned to give it a more bold and aggressive look, with a new hood, front fenders, grille, front and rear bumpers, trunklid and available LED headlights and taillights. Additionally, a new chrome strip on the trunk makes the rear lights appear lower, enhancing the grounded appearance, while chrome on the window surrounds, bumpers, and door trim adds to the premium nature of the design.
The 2016 Passat possesses excellent safety features, including the Intelligent Crash Response System, Electronic Stability Control and advanced safety cage. Additionally, the new Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps reduce accident damage by applying the brakes after a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping to reduce residual kinetic energy.
The new MIB II infotainment system in the 2016 Passat utilizes a capacitive touch sensor that gesture controls like swiping and pinch-zooming rather than the resistive touchscreens that require pressure and have slightly longer response times. And the innovative App-Connect technology features the three major smartphone integration platforms—Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
