For the Dare to Compare Challenge, the 2017 Passat R-Line is compared with similarly priced competitors, including the Accord Sport, Camry SE and Fusion SE. The biggest advantage of the Passat R-Line is its abundance of standard features. This includes driver assistance technology like Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert with Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. The Passat R-Line also comes standard with dual-zone climate control, 19″ alloy wheels, satellite radio and floor mats. Also, the Passat R-Line offers available LED headlights, which is not available with the other three models.

Making the 2017 Passat R-Line even more appealing is its excellent performance. It comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four cylinder engine, which delivers an excellent balance of power and efficiency, generating 170 horsepower and a highway fuel economy of 34 mpg. Giving the Passat dynamic handling and precise steering is a front suspension that features damper struts with robust lower control arms, coil springs and an anti-roll bar. Also, swinging into a tight parking spot is easy, thanks to the Passat's R-Line's 36.4-foot turning radius and just three turns from lock-to-lock.
