Performance

  • Four-corner independent suspension

    Some suspensions are linked, which means when your left wheel reacts to a pothole, your right wheel makes a similar motion. With the four-corner independent suspension, all those little inconsistencies in the road will have less of an impact on you, your passengers, and the way your Passat handles. That’s engineering that focuses on the road, so you can focus on enjoying the drive.
