2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Poor Man's Audi?
October 15, 2014
Styling is subjective, I know that. But still, I'm struck by how handsome our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI is. To my eyes, it embodies a clean, neatly-tailored design reminiscent of its upscale Audi cousins. No exaggerated swoops along the body sides, no bulging headlights, no discordant taillights.
The Passat's spacious cabin is similarly gimmick-free and along with this car's comfy seats, peppy performance and impressive fuel economy have made it one of my favorite sedans in a segment that's chock full of good choices.
