The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle marked the end of a great icon, but it can leave auto enthusiasts a little lost. If Volkswagen can get rid of a much-beloved model, are any of the other ones safe? This can lead to shoppers asking if the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is going to be discontinued as well. We can’t give any definitive answers here at Ventura VW, but here’s what we think.

2020 Volkswagen Passat updates

Many auto enthusiasts, including the popular The Truth About Cars journal, have theorized that this may be the last time we see the VW Passat. After saying goodbye to the iconic VW Beetle, this may not come as such a huge blow, despite the Passat’s popularity. But, if this is the end, that could possibly create more room for different and new models, like the 2020 I.D. Or, perhaps they’ll be focusing more on the concept models like the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept.

While it does seem like the Passat will have a bit of a redesign for the exterior, including new LED headlights, there isn’t much going on inside. The Passat hasn’t been updated much since 2011, so it will largely be playing catch-up with some driver-assist features, especially since the 2019 model’s safety features were uninspiring.

In the end, however, we don’t have a definitive answer if Passat’s time is coming to a close. Who knows? This upgrade is both substantial and lackluster for 2020. Still, this may be in preparation for something amazing in 2021, or just the Passat settling in for a steady if subtle presence in the automotive industry. Still, if you are a Passat enthusiast, you may be inspired to take this model for a spin, as the exterior does look pretty sleek. As always, we expect this model to remain an affordable and comfortable vehicle that many families will be drawn to.
