2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Compact Console

July 22, 2013

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

You can fit the starting midfield for the German national soccer team in the 2013 Volkswagen Passat's rear-seat, yet the center console is this skinny, inefficient space. I think even the Focus ST's is larger. Lame.

Look, no one's gonna mistake the Passat for a driver's car. It's a nice, big utility sedan with a premium sheen. As such, give me big bins and compartments where I can throw keys, phone, wallet, sunglasses, gate opener, a compact camera sometimes, access cards to the office and garage, and other junk that attaches itself throughout the day.

In the Passat, you get the glovebox, low side-door pockets and this console. Armrest is nice, though.
