The top speed of the sedan is an electronically regulated 155 mph. In terms of speed, the Passat R36 outstrips every other Volkswagen in accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h: the sedan reaches the 100 km/h mark in 5.6 seconds (5.8 seconds for the Variant).
The new Passat has a top speed of 147 MPH and can reach 60 MPH in 6 seconds. Not too shabby. This is an all new mid-sized SUV type car by Volkswagen, which hasn’t been built for speed so much as it has been built for picking the kids up from school.
And look what we’ve come across; a Volkswagen Passat R36, one of just 250 saloons made and the only example currently for sale in the PH classifieds.
3.6 litre VR6 Passat R36 The R36 uses a 3.6 litre VR6 engine rated 300 PS (221 kW; 296 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lbfft) of torque, which pushes the saloon and Variant (estate/wagon) to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.6 and 5.8 seconds respectively.
Some R36 owners complain of their seats wearing and collapsing at quite low kays, so have a close look at the seats and the trim. Overall though, the Passat is a generally reliable car and can be bought with good confidence.
Available as the R36 sedan and R36 Variant (that means wagon in VW speak), the R36 is to the Passat what the delicious R32 is to the Golf. In other words, it has a pumped-up V-6 engine (in this case, a 300-hp, 3.6-liter mill with direct injection) and 4MOTION all-wheel drive.
The tech-laden Passat GTE plug-in hybrid is the most advanced Passat ever sold. It mates a 1.4 TSI turbo petrol engine with a powerful electric motor and high-capacity plug-in batteries, for a system total power of 215bhp and system torque of 400Nm. This is good for 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 140mph.
R New Volkswagen Golf R New VW Golf R is the most powerful Golf ever made, trumping the outgoing model for pace and acceleration. 320 PS engine sends the R from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds. Go for the ‘R-Performance’ pack and you’ll get a special ‘Drift’ button as well as a drive mode specifically for the track.
On the other hand, the 280-hp GT is quick; it hit 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, tying a more loaded V-6-powered 2016-model-year Passat SEL we’ve tested. The 2018 Passat GT’s quarter-mile run of 14.4 seconds at 98.0 mph is almost identical to the 2016 SEL’s run of 14.3 seconds at 98.8 mph.
The Passat does very little wrong. It’s powered by a fairly peppy turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine making 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, mated to a smooth 6-speed automatic, with front-wheel drive.
The Volkswagen Passat (B8) is a mid-size car manufactured by Volkswagen that is available in a 4-door saloon and a 5-door estate body style sold as Variant in some markets.

Passat B7 Reliability Since the B7 is pretty much just a facelifted B6, the reliability is pretty much the same. There were minor improvements made to the interior and engines, so the already reliable B6 Passat, became more reliable for the B7. These can easily last over 100,000 miles with the proper maintenance.
The most powerful Volkswagen Passat ever has gone on sale. The Passat R36 is powered by a 294bhp 3.6-litre V6 engine with 258lb ft of pulling power. A semi-automatic six-speed gearbox and four-wheel-drive system come as standard.
Those 220kWs make the R36 VW’s most powerful passenger car (it’s only topped by the R50 SUV). … Volkswagen’s excellent DSG dual-clutch six-speed sequential manual with auto function is the sole gearbox option and downstream the R36 (like its R32 Golf stablemate) features VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system.
While the R36 has just hit U.K. dealerships, there are no current plans for Volkswagen to sell their souped-up sedan in North America.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance The Passat has a single powertrain option: a 174-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic transmission. In our testing, the engine was smooth and refined throughout its rev range and helped move the sedan with ease.
With 148 hp, the turbocharged 2 Liter 16v Inline 4 diesel engine accelerates this Passat 2.0 TDI 150 to 62 mph in 8.7 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 137 mph. Having a curb weight of 3252 lbs, it achieves 56.0 mpg on average and can travel 977 miles before requiring a refill of its 17.4 gallon capacity fuel tank.
That means, this special edition Golf GTI is the fastest model in the Golf line-up, with a top speed of 166mph. Like the Golf GTI Clubsport, the Clubsport 45 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 296bhp and 400Nm of torque.
Both the Passat and CC offers consumers an upscale car with luxurious features, but as for which one of these VW models is the most luxurious, the CC certainly comes out on top. If you’d like to take either of these models for a test drive, then be sure to get in touch with us at Carter Volkswagen.
Performance and Economy Volkswagen claims the Golf R can get to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds, but they’re fibbing. It’s faster than that. We tested it and managed to cover the 0-60mph sprint in a hair over 4.0 seconds.
