Fairly soon, the current generation Volkswagen Passat will have to purchase another trophy case if it hasn’t already. To add to its numerous accolades, the experts at AutoPacific and Autobytel recently named the sedan the top-rated mid-size car for this year’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. If that wasn’t enough, the Passat also took home the title of the Most Ideal premium mid-size. Needless to say, Volkswagen knows how to build a proper four door.
To complement the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards, the Ideal Vehicle Awards (IVA) trophies are given out in a different manner from most rewards. While both are customer based surveys, the IVAs ask owners what they would change on their cars or trucks. When a vehicle receives the least amount of requests, it is given the top spot. “The IVAs are awarded to those vehicles whose owners like them just the way they are,” said George Peterson, President of AutoPacific.
“We are very excited by this latest recognition for the Passat and Golf models. This is a testament to the commitment by the Passat and Golf vehicle teams to bring to market affordable German engineered vehicles that not only meet the needs of the customer, but exceed them,” said Jonathan Browning, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America.
