INTERIOR

When you are driving through Chicagoland, you want to make sure you are riding in style and comfort. The brand new Passat's interior offers you just that. The GT's interior is just as sporty and stylish as its exterior body design. The interior includes sports seats up front that pack a lot of comfort to get you through long drives. The seats are two-toned and manufactured from high-quality materials. There is carbon fiber trim lining the doors, a black center console, and a black headliner that manage to give the vehicle a sporty look with a luxurious feel. The control knobs are well-designed and intuitively placed along the dash, and there are enough storage bins and compartments located throughout the cabin in which you and your passengers can stash your items. The cabin itself seems well-insulated, so you will not have to worry about engine and road noise drowning out the music coming from your stereo system.
