2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Fuel Economy Update for February
March 3, 2014
With nearly 5,000 miles on the clock, our gas-powered 2014 VW Passat TSI is starting to hit its stride when it comes to mileage. A long highway stretch netted 33 miles per gallon, easily its best showing yet. Overall mileage improved to 27.1 mpg which moves it closer to its combined rating of 28 mpg.
The power of the turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder continues to impress as well. It's smooth, responsive and it pulls all the way to its redline. If it wasn't for the mileage hit, the gas engine would be an easy choice over the diesel version.
