Family Car Means it's the Safest Car Possible

Remember what we said about the new 2018 Volkswagen Passat being a family vehicle first and formost? Well, we meant it. The new 2018 Passat recently received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Association (NHTSA). Think of it this way: That's one star for every member of your family that the new Volkswagen Passat can carry. Additionally, the new 2018 Volkswagen Passat features an advanced safety cage and front and rear crumple zones. In case of an accident, the front and rear crumple zones absorb crash energy, while the rigid safety cage deflects this energy away from you and your passengers.
