The Volkswagen Passat: The Safe Choice

October 24th, 2018 by

When someone says they made the safe choice, we often think of it as a negative thing; we think that they didn’t take risks or they took the boring option over something more adventurous. However, doesn’t the safe choice sound like the smarter move?

Volkswagen has never necessarily been one to play it safe, in the boring sense of the word. They brought you “the people’s car” back in the 1930’s when most manufacturers were focused on high-cost luxury cars. They brought the world unique concept vehicles like the beloved VW Beetle (a.k.a. Bug) and the VW Van, now synonymous with hippies and the turbulent ‘60’s where people risked it all to make changes in the world around them.

You grew up. So did they. In 1973, they brought you the sedan version of the people’s car, the Passat. It was a family car. It was a car designed to keep your family safe. After all, why take risks when your family is involved? It was your priority. As a result, safety became Volkswagen’s top priority too.

In 2018, the new VW Passat model earned a NHTSA 5-Star Safety Rating. The reasons for the award include a safety cage designed to keep occupants safe in the event of a collision. The car features an Intelligent Crash Response System as well. There’s also the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, ensuring that a vehicle involved in an impact comes to a complete stop, avoiding further crashing damage. There’s also Lane Assist technology, alerting you if you start to zone out and allow your vehicle to drift.

Your new VW Passat also features a blind spot monitor so you can be assured that Volkswagen is looking out for danger even when you can’t see it. Multiple air bags and child safety locks are included to keep all of your passengers safe, and daytime running lights make sure other drivers know you’re coming, too.

So, the all-new Volkswagen Passat is truly the safe choice, and that happens to be a very, very good thing: a choice you’ll never regret making.
