The 2018 Volkswagen Passat is a good midsize car that'll handle your commute or next road trip without a problem. But VW Passat shoppers in Middletown, Odessa and Dover have another decision to make: which 2018 Volkswagen Passat trim level is the best fit for you?

Our team at Winner Volkswagen can help you with that. We've assembled this guide to the new model's trims, so you can see all the options side by side for your convenience. We want to help you find a sedan that you can drive away happy in-and stay that way for years to come!

Your Standard VW Passat

The base 2018 Volkswagen Passat S has the features you need for a powerful, efficient, convenient ride. It's 2.0L turbocharged engine produces 174 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, for quick acceleration up to highway speeds. Fuel-wise, it delivers an impressive EPA-estimated 25 city and 36 highway mpg1.

With the Volkswagen Passat S, you'll get standard automatic headlights, forever erasing the worries that you might've left your lights on. A rear-view camera system helps you avoid back-over collisions, and the model's 16 wheels are easy to steer and control.

Volkswagen Passat R-Line

The 2018 Volkswagen Passat R-Line makes a few major steps up from the base trim. It adds 19 wheels for improved grip and handling, as well as stylish new R-Line front and rear bumpers.

This trim also comes equipped with VW Car-Net App-Connect, a big deal for those looking for high-tech infotainment. This feature lets you connect a compatible smartphone with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and stream music or use other select mobile apps on your R-Line's touchscreen.  

VW Passat SE (and SE with Technology)

The Volkswagen Passat SE adds several high-tech features for a more convenient and comfortable ride. You'll get keyless access and push-button start, so you don't have to worry about fumbling with keys if you're in a hurry. A power-tilting and -sliding sunroof will lighten up your ride and let the fresh air in.

If you like the Volkswagen Passat SE push-button start, you'll love the SE with Technology's remote start feature-you can get the car running before you step inside. During cold Delaware winters, it's a great way to get the oil moving a few seconds before you get behind the wheel, so you'll start warming up as soon as you're driving. 

SEL Premium

The SEL Premium upgrades to a Fender® premium audio system with 400 watts of power, to give your tunes a clear, concert-quality ring to them. It also adds stylish leather seating as well as LED headlights for a more energy-efficient, longer-lasting look at what's headed your way.

There's also an SEL Premium trim with a powerful 3.6L V6 engine. Its 280 horses will boost acceleration and help you power your way up steep climbs. This trim also adds a lane assist active safety feature, all the better to keep you from drifting as you approach those top highway speeds.
