Passat vs Honda Accord


The Volkswagen Passat vs. the Honda Accord

If you are in search of a great, family-friendly Sedan with America’s best bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the Volkswagen Passat is the car for you. This spacious sedan offers 25 miles-per-gallon for city driving and 36 for highway driving as well as the People First Warranty: 6 years or 72,000 miles. Those intrigued by the Passat may find in their search that the Honda Accord is comparable, below is a breakdown on how the two models stack up.

Safety Features

The Passat has earned a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A few of the safety features that this car is equipped with include safety cages to help absorb potential crash energy and deflect away from the driver and any passengers, as well as an intelligent crash response system that can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors and activate hazard lights in the event of airbag deployment. The Accord stacks up similarly with Honda’s proprietary Sensing technology. This includes Road and Lane Departure Mitigation Systems and Traffic Sign Recognition, to name a few features.


The interior of the Passat will look similar to that of previous models, which is because it has been mostly unchanged over the last few years. This style is enjoyed by Volkswagen owners and is both clean and handsome. The Accord’s newly updated interior is in its first iteration while the Passat’s interior has proven tried and true over numerous years. Both options offer integration with Apple’s CarPlay technology for easy and safe iPhone integration, as well as Android Auto for Android users.


The Passat offers seven stability-enhancing systems, including Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution to help maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard break and Electronic Stability Control to adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to specific wheels as needed. The Accord has an adaptive damper system to control suspension action and wheel resonators that work to minimize road noise.


Not many car models can compete with Volkswagen’s 6 year/72,000 mile warranty. For contrast, the Accord is covered by a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty but also boasts powertrain, federal emissions, and seat belt warranties, among other applicable warranties.
The Volkswagen Passat’s proven interior design, reputable safety features, numerous stability improvement options, and extended warranty coverage are just some of the reasons that upgrading to this model will lend peace of mind and confidence to drivers.
