Fuel efficiency ratings and full highway driving range of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat

You can’t go wrong with a high-quality and well-built Volkswagen model in your driveway, especially if said model is the all-new 2019 Passat. In the mid-size (venturing into full-size) sedan realm, the Passat is a real and true kingpin, able to stand against any competition in the factors that matter most to consumers. Excitement and adrenaline between trips to the pump is one such aspect, so today our VW Franklin team wants to show you the fuel efficiency ratings and full highway driving range of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat – you’re sure to love what it can do!

Engine specs and fuel economy of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat

There’s only one available engine for the 2019 Passat, but it’s a bright and punchy addition to an already legendary model. A 2.0-liter TSI® four-cylinder lies under the hood, which can manufacture up to 174 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, given the right motor revving.

No matter how you throttle the Passat model’s engine, however, you can still expect to achieve economy ratings of 25 city miles per gallon and 36 highway miles per gallon, placing it in the upper echelon of its class when it comes to gas mileage. And everything else, for that matter.

Highway driving distance and perspective of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat

Given all this, you’d be absolutely right in assuming that the 2019 Passat can take you great distances before you need to fill back up. Thanks to its 18.5-gallon tank, you could realistically drive up to 666 miles before refueling – we’ve listed some cities around that distance away from our Milwaukee-area lot, just for context:

  • Knoxville, Tennessee
  • Buffalo, New York
  • Grand Forks, North Dakota
  • Topeka, Kansas
