Volkswagen has recently launched a new commercial for the 2012 Passat model, highlighting the fact that the sedan is an IIHS top safety pick.
As you can see from the video posted below this article, a crash Volkswagen Passat is playing the main role, along with its driver, a teenager, who is telling his friend that his dad is going to kill him for ruining his ride. This is where the ingenuity of Volkswagen comes in handy: “Your dad can only kill you if you are OK!”, which is politically correct, as some would say.
“The 2012 Passat is a true Volkswagen, offering German engineering class-leading standard features, and superior fuel economy, all for a remarkable value. Demonstrating our commitment to the American market, the car will be produced at one of the newest, most advanced, and environmentally responsible auto assembly plants in the world in Chattanooga, Tennessee”, said the company’s president and CEO for America, Jonathan Browning.
According to the car manufacturer, the entry-level version of the Passat starts at just under 20,000 USD and for the money, its owners can get the 2.5 liter engine with 170 HP, the same one used in the Jetta, mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The model is also getting features like dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth or steering wheel audio controls.
