A reliable and budget-friendly car for sale in Sharjah, Volkswagen Passat gets a slight revamp for 2020. With minor tweaks as well as technology upgrades, it is now available for sale in the UAE. CarSwitch.com digs into the details.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat sports a dominant grille, coupe-like roofline, and thin LED headlamps which make it look bolder. Passat is available in three trims: Comfortline, Trendline and Highline. Moreover, LED headlights on the front and rear come as standard as well as prominent Passat badges along the rear. It gets 17-inch tires for its base model and 18-inch for its top-spec trim, Highline.
Passat has always proven itself to be one of the most comfortable cars to buy and hence focuses on providing a cozy interior. However, technology updates for this car are noteworthy too. Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect technology will come as standard in the new Passat. This allows smartphone to connect through three platforms – Apple Carplay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
Things remain pretty much the same under the hood which might be disappointing for those looking for an upgrade. It comes with the usual 2.5L 5-cylinder engine with 170 hp and 200 Nm torque with 6-speed auto transmission.
Victor Dalmau, Managing Director for Volkswagen Middle East said “Last year, the previous Passat model made us nearly 20 percent of sales of Volkswagen Middle East total sales, highlighting the importance of sedan in this region. So we are delighted to welcome a new and upgraded Passat – one of the Volkswagen’s key iconic vehicles. It allows our customers to drive a premium German- engineered car at an affordable price.”
This seems like a fair enough explanation for Volkswagen to continue Passat. However, a few more tweaks and changes could’ve been a good idea for this new car for sale in Sharjah. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is available at a starting price of AED 95,407 and above. If you are looking to buy a used car in Sharjah, you can do so through CarSwitch.com!
