September 12th, 2018 by

We love recommending the VW Passat to people. This midsize car has plenty of interior room, tons of desirable features, and highly competitive fuel efficiency – all at a price that is just right. One of the most underrated characteristics about the Passat ties right into its efficiency rating – it’s driving range. Take a look below to learn how far you can drive the 2017 VW Passat on one tank of gas!

Driving Range for the 2017 VW Passat

The 2017 VW Passat comes standard with a 1.8L turbocharged I-4 that provides you with 170 horsepower and a 23 City/34 Highway MPG rating. While it falls short of the efficiency offered on the smaller Jetta, some may prefer the added convenience of getting to make fewer stops for gas, due to the large fuel tank in the VW Passat. The 2017 Passat comes with an 18.5-gallon fuel tank, which means that the 2017 VW Passat has a max highway driving range of about 629 miles. That’s a long time to go in between fill-ups at the gas station!

Even if you look solely at city driving, the 2017 VW Passat can still go more than 425 miles before having to stop for gas. The Passat has a combined MPG rating that results in a driving range estimation of right around 500 miles.
