Let’s Take a Look Back at the History of the Volkswagen Passat

Reliving the History of the Volkswagen Passat through Pictures

Now that the Volkswagen Bus and Volkswagen Beetle have taken their final bows, which Volkswagen model currently on our Boucher VW of Franklin lot near Milwaukee, WI, is the longest-running VW lineup? Some might guess the Volkswagen Golf, but they’d be wrong. Others might guess the Volkswagen Jetta, but they’d also be wrong. In fact, it’s the Volkswagen Passat, which went on sale in Europe all the way back in 1973. And while the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is a true modern day marvel, let’s relive the history of the rest of the Volkswagen Passat lineups with these pictures.
