2021 vs 2022 Volkswagen Passat Sedans in Colorado

2022 Volkswagen Passat Sedan

2022 VW Passat vs. 2021 VW Passat

A mainstay of the Volkswagen line-up, the 2022 Volkswagen Passat enters its final model year of production. As such, the brand has made the newest version of the sedan as dynamic as possible to wrap up its storied vehicle. To celebrate the final iteration of the Passat, there is a special Limited Edition version of the sedan. Built to pay homage to the plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee where the Passat has been manufactured for the past decade, Passat models with the Limited Edition package will be coveted by discerning northern Colorado Volkswagen fans. Everything else that made the 2021 version of the Passat a top sedan option finds its way back into the 2022 model year as well.  


Making its return to the 2022 Volkswagen Passat is the vibrant 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the 2021 model year. Generating 174 horsepower and funneling it through an automatic six-speed transmission, the ride of the 2022 Passat is refined and impactful. FWD handling remains the standard for the 2022 Passat like its 2021 counterpart. With 24 MPG city fuel economy estimates from the EPA, the 2022 version of the deluxe sedan sees an increase in efficiency compared to the 2021 Passat.  

Exterior & Interior Features

The final nod to a classic VW member, the Limited Edition trim option for the 2022 Volkswagen Passat is simply great. The exclusivity of the sedan starts with the fact that only a small number of the Limited Edition trims will be available in a metallic Racing Green paint scheme for another layer of boldness while out and about. Couple this with the 15-inch wheels that are also only available on the Limited Edition trim, and there are many reasons why the trim is a top choice for customers who like to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.  

Limited Edition interior amenities and elements are also fascinating additions to the 2022 Passat. Superior leather seat upholstery adds both visual and comfort to the interior of the sedan. All seats in the Limited Edition trim are also heated for optimal all-year-round comfort in northern Colorado. Premium amenities such as integrated navigation and a deluxe Premium Sound System designed by Fender are what make the Limited Edition trim of the 2022 Passat a special option for today’s Boulder community.  

Safety Features

With the same comprehensive suite of driver-assistance technology standard on the 2022 Passat as it was in the 2021 version of the Volkswagen, there is plenty of reason to feel confident in any northern Colorado driving venture. The blend of Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning work together to provide superior protection for the vehicle from the front. With additional Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring standard as well, similar protection is found on the back of the sedan. Drivers who like the have a hassle-free time on the highway will adore the available Adaptive Cruise Control feature.
