Volkswagen Passat 2017
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time: The Wolfsburg pack adds a good deal of kit for its $5400 (extra) ask, including adaptive dampers, better headlights and taillights and the quite brilliant Active Dash Display, which wouldn't look out of place in a $250,000 supercar.You can read the full review here.

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Passat 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
How do I fold in the wing mirrors on my 2017 Volkswagen Passat?
From what I can gather, the 2017 Passat in its Australian-delivered configuration doesn’t include the ability to automatically fold its mirrors in when you lock the doors. Certainly, you can do this manually for when you tackle an automatic car-wash, but that becomes tedious if you want the mirrors folded every time you lock and leave the car.
But what’s interesting is that the car in other markets does, in fact, incorporate this feature, so it’s entirely possible, since your car already has the hardware) that the function is buried away deep, deep inside the set-up menus with a series of incomprehensible steps required to enable the function. Modern cars are subject to numerous hacks like this one, and a VW dealer might be able to point you in the right direction. It’s a handy feature and one that is valued highly by those who park on narrow streets each night. Actually, that’s why European versions of the Passat have the function in the first place, but it seems a bit mean that VW would drop it for our market.Show more
What cars are similar to the Volkswagen Passat?
That’s the problem with VWs, you can get six good ones in a row, but the next one could be a lemon. Rather than a wagon you’re probably looking at an SUV. I would suggest a Kia Sorento, Subaru Outback, or Toyota RAV4.Show more
