Styling changes to the 2016 Passat are subtle, but they help freshen the look a bit. Less subtle are the added features; most of the newest high-tech items are offered, albeit some only on upper trim levels. Prices start at $23,260 and run up to $37,655 for the top V6 model.

At first I was worried.

When an invitation arrived to a preview for the “new” 2016 Volkswagen Passat, I grew concerned that one of my favorite midsize sedans was going to become … well … less of a favorite.

It happens. Sometimes, a vehicle hits a peak of sorts where everything just seems to fall into place, and then a redesigned model replaces it that suffers from the “Change for the sake of change” syndrome and loses something in the transition.

Although classified as a midsize sedan, Volkswagen’s Passat is as spacious as some full-size ones. Our very well equipped SEL Premium test car came to $31,715 including destination, but base models start at about $23,000.

In the hotly contested midsize-sedan market, Volkswagen’s Passat is an also-ran. Compared to the 408,000 unit sales of the Toyota Camry and 367,000 of the Honda Accord, Passat’s 110,000 barely makes a blip.

Passat TSI

Our test Passat TSI listed for $31,715 in SEL trim, and averaged an impressive 28.5 mpg in an even balance of city and highway driving.

CrossBlue Concept

Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept

Volkswagen gave attendees of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show a look at two concept cars that might very well see production in the near future.

Headlining its press conference was the CrossBlue SUV concept. If it were to see production (which we think is highly likely at this point), it would rival the GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot, and Mazda CX-9 among 3-row, 7-passenger “large-midsize” crossovers. Though physically larger than the premium-midsize Volkswagen Touareg, a vehicle based on the CrossBlue would be less expensive.
