Volkswagen takes safety seriously, and this couldn't be more evident than in the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. This compact sedan was recently awarded a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and it's easy to see why. From its available driver assistance technologies to its special engineering, this sedan is set to give you confidence out on the road.

Standard Safety.

Every Passat model comes standard with a Rear View Camera System, allowing you to see behind you with ease as you reverse. VW also has made other driver assistance technologies available at an affordable price.

What makes the 2018 Passat even safer is that these standard available driver assistance features only build on the vehicle's structure, which was engineered to protect its passengers. Combining front and rear crumple zones and a rigid safety cage, the Passat helps deflect crash energy away from its driver and passengers.

It also has seven stability-enhancing systems, including Electronic Brake-Pressure Distribution and Electronic Stability Control, which are set to help you maintain control in the event of sudden braking. The Passat even has an automatic-locking feature, which will lock the doors of the vehicle as soon as it reaches 8 mph.

R-Line Trim Safety.

On the R-Line trim, you can receive top-notch tech such as Adaptive Cruise Control, which monitors the distance between your sedan and the car in front of you while in cruise control; Forward Collision Warning, which lets you know if a collision is imminent to help you prevent serious injury; and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist), which will brake if a forward collision is detected at low speeds.

This trim even has Blind Spot Monitor so you're always aware of obstacles in your blind spot, and Rear Traffic Alert makes you more aware as you're backing up. On the SEL Premium models, you will also find Lane Departure Warning.
