2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI Review: Introduction
There's a lot to be said for sticking to the plan, even when everyone around you is striking out in a new direction. Of course, that's assuming that your plan was solid to begin with. The 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI proves that there are some aspects of building a family sedan that never go out of style, and the German brand's most appealing four-door cruiser flies in the face of current design and technology trends to deliver one of the most satisfying driving experiences available in an affordable commuter car. All of this is on top of the incredible real-world fuel efficiency offered by its turbodiesel engine, a unit which compares well against competitors like Ford's EcoBoosted Fusion, the redesigned Mazda MAZDA6, and even the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
