This is the midsize car that costs the least over 5 years


The 2021 VW Passat

Passat has earned the title of Best Midsize Car in the 2021 KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.

An impressive performance. But calling this front-wheel-drive VW a midsize car borders on the misleading because the Passat is an exceptionally roomy 5-passenger sedan. Its back seat is huge, and its trunk, at nearly 16 cubic feet, is positively cavernous.

A few words from KBB’s Expert Review: “Giving the Passat a leg up on its competitors is VW’s 2-year free-maintenance plan, in addition to its competitive 4-year/50,000-mile warranty. While not as powerful as a Kia

Maxima, the Passat’s turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is a strong performer that gets 36 mpg on the highway.”

That proven engine sends 174 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. While we wouldn’t describe the Passat chassis as agile, it’s tuned for ride comfort while maintaining some semblance of sportiness.

CarPlay and Android Auto. The base car, which starts at $23,995, gets important standard safety features like automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor, and a rear cross-traffic alert. The flagship Passat, the $29,995 R-Line, sports 19-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters, Fender audio system, navigation, and gloss-black exterior trim.

With a simplified trim structure (S, SE, R-Line), the attractively priced Passat flies under the radar as the top midsize sedan in the 2021 KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.
