2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: Seat Comfort

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

Not only do I find the sport seats in our 2013 VW Passat TDI SEL Premium super comfortable, I also really like the quality of the materials.

The leather feels nice and soft, but it's the soft inserts I appreciate most. Not sure if they're real suede, and Volkswagen doesn't call them out in its press material. But real or faux, they've got my vote.
