Used 2012 Volkswagen Passat Sedan

More about the 2012 Volkswagen Passat
More About This Model

The Volkswagen Passat has traditionally been on the fringe of the midsize sedan class. It competes with the Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys of the world, but in the past, its pricing began where its rivals were topping out. On the one hand, this made for an amazingly refined midsize sedan, with an interior quality and driving feel like that of an Audi, but this came at the cost of an uncompetitive price when compared to the competition.

The 2012 Volkswagen Passat has had its price slashed by $7,000 compared to the previous-generation Passat, so now it's on equal footing with its competition. To achieve this more attractive price point, a few items have been left behind in the redesign, however. These include the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive, bi-xenon headlights, and even rear-seat ventilation outlets to name a few.

At the same time, we've found that the price cut and shorter list of standard and optional equipment don't mean that corners have been cut in the redesign of the Passat's basic package. In fact, Volkswagen has managed to maintain the premium feel of the Passat's predecessor while significantly reducing the price tag.

There is no shortage of good cars to choose from when it comes to midsize sedans, and the differences among them are slight. The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu has been significantly redesigned, yet lacks the interior space of the Passat. The 2012 Honda Accord is a solid contender, but in the lower trims, it doesn't offer as many standard features as its competition. And finally, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata has the most power, offers Bluetooth as standard equipment and has a lower price point.

Should I lease or buy a 2012 Volkswagen Passat?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
