Passat Named Top Family Car by ‘Parents’


2012 passat

Parents magazine and the vehicle research resource have joined forces to zero in on their 2012 list of the 15 best family cars – and of course, the 2012 Passat takes home yet another win for the VW team.

According to Parent, The selection process looks at hundreds of vehicles primarily focusing on safety and reliability. The judges also took into account, the interior and exterior, the vehicle performance, as well as features specifically for making the vehicle family-freindly.

Each vehicle that was featured on the prestigious list has electronic stability control, antilock brakes, and at least 6 airbags.  14 of them were named “Top Safety Picks” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)

It’s no wonder the 2012 Passat took home the #1 spot for the sedan category- it encompasses all these traits in one neat little package. Everything a family could want… and more 🙂
