2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2020 Hyundai Sonata

2020 Volkswagen Passat vs 2020 Hyundai Sonata

With the 2020 Volkswagen Passat nearing its upcoming release date, both in the USA and worldwide, it’s time to see how it fares against other, all-new 2020 model year sedans. From that lot, we’ve chosen the similarly redesigned Hyundai Sonata sedan as a competitor.

While functionally quite identical, which we’ll examine in a brief moment, the differences in style between the new Passat and Sonata designs are incredibly distinct. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat gives off a solid, sophisticated, and composed image, whereas the 2020 Hyundai Sonata offers a far more sharp and sleek visage.

Beyond style, let’s take a look at specs and features. It’s the 2020 Volkswagen Passat vs the 2020 Hyundai Sonata!

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat sedan is set to release in the early portion of the 4th quarter of 2019. Presumably, that means an expected release of around September or October 2019.
