V6 Performance

Both the Passat and the Accord Sedan can be equipped with available V6 engines. They’re a great choice for drivers who want a little extra power to get up to speed on highways around Cathedral City. However, the Passat is able to deliver higher performance numbers:

  • With an available 3.5L V6 engine, the Accord Sedan supplies 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Passat, with its 3.6L V6 engine, puts out 280 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

As you can see, the Passat has the upper hand when it comes to V6 power.

Standard Active Safety

These days, more and more vehicles include high tech active safety features. These systems can alert you if a potentially dangerous situation is detected and, in certain instances, it can prevent a collision from occurring. This gives families in Palm Springs extra piece of mind while driving, and that’s why Volkswagen has included a forward collision prevention system in every Passat model. If the car ahead of you brakes suddenly, it will sound an alarm to let you know to brake. If you don’t activate the brakes, it can do so on your behalf. Looking for this feature on the Accord? You’re out of luck. You’ll need to add a costly options package.
