2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2019 Ford Fusion

2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2019 Ford Fusion

In line with the massive redesign of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is now on its way with a brand-new stylish look and a handful of upgrades. Although not as extensive as the Jetta redesign of the previous year, this new Passat still adds plenty of positives to an already solid VW model. As we’ve now covered the 2020 VW Passat on its own, it’s time we found out how it compares to other midsize sedans on the market.

On previous comparisons of the Volkswagen Passat, we’ve trended towards comparing against Japanese automotive brands, which tend to have a bit more focus on sedan builds compared to American-based car companies. However, with the debut of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat redesign, we wanted to bring in something new on the competitor side as well. That’s why, today, we’ve chosen the 2019 Ford Fusion to compare the redesigned Passat against. It’s the 2020 Volkswagen Passat vs the 2019 Ford Fusion!

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat just slightly beats out the 2019 Ford Fusion in terms of horsepower but has a huge advantage with its torque output. Additionally, as the 2020 VW Passat has a smaller yet turbocharged engine, it should also have a superior fuel economy when compared to the 2019 Fusion, although that data has not yet been released.

As for additional features, the 2020 Volkswagen Passat has many highlights, including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Climatronic® Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is set to release in the summer of 2019. Pricing, trim levels, and fuel economy information will be released in the coming months. However, despite its redesign, the pricing of the 2020 VW Passat is not expected to differ greatly when compared to its previous model. That would be the 2019 VW Passat which has a starting MSRP of $25,295.
