2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Secure Handling

July 9, 2013

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

Great fuel economy is why you buy a 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI. But if you happen to find yourself on a curvy two-lane road, the handling capabilities of this fuel miser are still on par for a family sedan.

It feels secure when driving around turns, not floppy or loose. At least that's my opinion after driving our long-term car on about 20 miles of road like the one pictured above. The steering doesn't convey much information to the driver, but few family sedans these days really do anyway.
