If you’re looking into Volkswagen for the first time, or if you’ve long been a fan of the brand, and you find yourself researching the next Passat, welcome. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat hits the road in the new decade with plenty of updates to its design, but the engine does not change from the 2019 edition of the vehicle. Read on to learn more about the engine in the Passat and why Volkswagen made a turbo engine standard.

Engine Options

Even if there is only this one engine available on the Passat for the 2020 model year, it’s more than enough. The Passat is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged TSI® engine. Even with the 2020 model year expanding the trim level options to 4, there is no way to buy a Passat brand-new with anything more powerful.

Engine Specs

The engine is not underpowered, however. For a common sedan, the engine in the Passat produces 174 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. It’s no sports car, but the turbo gets the acceleration to make highway merging a breeze. Thanks to this engine, the Passat is a fun little car that still manages to be kind when it comes to fueling up. An EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg means the Passat is greater for commuting, but it can push beyond the bounds of boring.
