Convenient Exterior Features of the 2017 Volkswagen Passat
Besides the obvious bold lines of the 2017 Passat, the aggressive grille, and the available LED headlights, there are a few features that are not quite so obvious. Take the Easy Open trunk, for instance. When your key is in your hand, pocket, or purse, just pass your foot beneath the rear bumper to unlock and open the trunk. The chrome tailpipe endcap not only looks great but also helps keep the tailpipe end from rusting out. The outside rearview mirrors have turn light indicators, which not only make your turning plans even more evident but also help you see when the turn lights are on when they shouldn’t be. Choose from eight exterior colors to personalize your Passat.
