    VW Passat Rental: Specs, Dimensions & Luggage Capacity

    Volkswagen Passat RentalA VW Passat rental is a great rental choice for travelers in need of some extra space on their trip to Europe. Intermediate or mid-size cars are a step up from compact cars, offering more space and comfort for passengers and their luggage. The VW Passat seats 5 adults comfortably, making it a perfect car to rent for families and small groups traveling through Europe. With 586 liters of storage space in the trunk area--enough for 5 large suitcases--the Passat is at the top of its class in terms of luggage capacity. If that's not enough space, the rear seats fold down, more than doubling the original capacity. Fuel economy in the VW Passat is among the best, averaging between 48 and 57 miles per gallon, depending on the type of engine. It drives smoothly and handles well in the country as well as the city, so trips to Paris and the English Cotswolds are equally doable. The Passat doesn't skimp on power, either.

If that's not enough space, the rear seats fold down, nearly tripling the amount of space available for luggage. Additionally, the rear seat folds at a 60/40 split, allowing travelers to store longer items without compromising the entire back seat. The glove compartment is great for storing valuables and important travels documents that need to be kept out of sight.
