2012 Passat at 2012 Volkswagen Passat U.S. Price and Specs

The latest generation VW Passat , made famous by the little Darth Vader commercial, is now on sale in America starting at $19,995.

Considering the fact that the Passat is a well-built, well-equipped refined and cool German saloon, that price makes it good value. But you better wait a couple of month for Consumer Reports verdict on it. Passat’s little brother Jetta also had the same qualities, but CR named it a great disappointment after they tested it. So be careful.

On the paper every thing looks good about the new Passat. It comes with premium features, class-leading room inside the cabin and luggage space, and a range of four and six cylinder engines including the 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel model that averages 43 mpg and has a range of 800 miles on one tank.
