2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI: What Companies Should Give Their Travelling Sales Reps

July 18, 2013

2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI

If I were a sales rep who had to do a lot of driving, I would love to have our 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI as my company car. (And yes, I'll have to assume here that I'd be good enough of a sales rep to get a company car.)

The Passat TDI is ideal for a lot of highway driving. The seats are comfortable for multi-hour trips, the suspension provides a very nice highway ride quality, fuel economy is very impressive and the fuel range is just bonkers. There are other nice qualities as well, including useful cupholders and a solid-sounding Fender-branded audio system (with the SEL Premium trim level).

Plus, I think the Passat looks pretty sharp on the outside, helping me to impress my clients.
