What Are Some Features of the Volkswagen Passat B6?


Automatic headlights, a rearview camera, touchscreen sound system, heated front seats and a keyless entry system with a push button start are some of the standard features of the Volkswagen Passat B6 for 2015. Some additional features include corner-illuminating fog lights, 17-inch Sonoma wheels, Sirius XM satellite radio, V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces and an eight-way adjustable driver's seat.

All Passats also have a standard 170-horsepower four-cylinder 1.8-liter TSI engine with a six-speed automatic transmission equipped with both Sport and Tiptronic modes. The automatic headlights function while driving, and the corner-illuminating fog lights give the driver a better view of the road ahead.

The rear-view parking camera helps avoid any unseen hazards while backing up. The Passat's touchscreen sound system has a high-definition radio and is linked to the MP3- and WMA-compatible compact disc player as well as streaming music, news, talk and sports from Sirius XM with a complimentary three-month subscription.

An owner of a 2015 Passat B6 only needs to press a button to enter the car and then depress the brake pedal and hit the start button to go. Three heat settings keep the Passat's driver warm, while the power-adjustable backrest and lumbar support settings adjust the driver's seat.
