2017 Volkswagen Passat Vs. 2017 Kia Optima Staten Island, NY

Come by Island Volkswagen near Staten Island, NY to compare the all-new 2017 Volkswagen Passat versus the 2017 Kia Optima. The Passat is designed to be family-friendly, thanks to the Rear View Camera System, available Blind Spot Monitor, and available VW Car-Net that lets you connect with your car. VW Car-Net App-Connect allows you to connect your compatible smartphone with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or MirrorLink to access select apps on the touchscreen display. From streaming music to mobile apps, it can be accessed on the touchscreen. With 400 watts of power, every pulsating beat that pumps out of the available Fender Premium Audio System will get clear, concert-quality sound to make sure you can rock while you roll. The sensors on the available Blind Spot Monitor are able to help sense what you might miss. When driving, if you attempt to change lanes, the Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to cars that may be in your blind spot. Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. When activated, if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car follows suit.

The Passat now comes with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, making it easy to move at the speed of family. The available DSG automatic transmission offers seamless acceleration and fast gear changes. Or shift manually in Tiptronic and even switch into Sport mode. It’s the best of both worlds. The turbo technology in the TSI engine forces cooled air straight into the engine, helping give you impressive performance, horsepower, and torque. These available track-inspired paddle shifters, located near your fingers on the steering wheel, can let you quickly shift without taking your hands off the wheel. Take the wheel and take control. With the turbocharged 2.0L TSI engine, performance comes standard along with practicality. It’s quick. It’s fun. And it can get an EPA-estimated 36 hwy mpg. In short, it’s a turbocharged win-win.

When compared to the 2017 Volkswagen Passat, the 2017 Kia Optima falls a little short. Optima’s emotionally charged exterior is punctuated at every corner with striking, front and rear fascia, complementing Kia’s signature Tiger nose grille. The iconic Optima is undeniable style that commands attention and the road. Open the door and you’ll find a spacious, modern interior enhanced with bold accents, soft-touch surfaces and fine, premium stitching, all of which come together to create a sanctuary of quiet comfort and craftsmanship for you and your passengers. The Optima uses more than 50% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS). A ring-shaped section, defining the boot opening behind the rear seats below the shelf, substantially increases body rigidity. And hot-stamping of components in 16 core stress areas boosts the body structure for better driving dynamics and a quieter ride.
