The Volkswagen Passat has existed for decades—since 1973. Today, the Passat line is in its eighth generation. It has evolved from a simple two-door sedan to a four-door sedan with an extended top to provide additional interior room for its five occupants. There are two trim levels with intriguing interior design differences.

Volkswagen used interesting names for its two trim levels of the 2019 Passat, 2.0T Wolfsburg Edition and 2.0T SE R-Line. Both trims come standard with the same engine, a 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Inline-four-Cylinder that produces 174-horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque while maintaining 25 mpg in Salem, OR and 36 mpg on the highway.

Make sure to include viewing and test driving both trim levels of the Volkswagen Passat when you visit Volkswagen of Salem. The principal differences between the two trims are in the interior where the R-Line quickly outdistances the Wolfsburg trim, though the Wolfsburg beats most competitors.
