Comparison Analysis

If you’re interested in a midsize sedan, odds are that the most important features for you have to do with safety, comfort, and maybe some extra engine power at least. Budget buyers will find the larger turbo in the base model Passat more to their liking, especially since it has a shiftable automatic transmission for the best combination of ease of use and a sporty driving experience.

When it comes to sound systems, the comparison is a little like comparing apples to oranges since Honda doesn’t usually use branded audio systems. But if you know the name Fender®, you know the Passat has clear, powerful speakers that can deliver concert-like sound that you won’t forget. Even with two fewer speakers, the Passat has the perfect sound system setup and plenty of connectivity for an increasingly tech-hungry generation.
