The 2019 Volkswagen Passat Tdi has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Volkswagen Passat Tdi include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Volkswagen Passat Tdi is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Volkswagen Passat Tdi doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
