Additional Vehicle Information

Buying a new car can be a time-consuming process. With so many makes and models to choose from, shopping can become overwhelming—but have no fear! We at Pohanka Volkswagen of Capitol Heights have created a side-by-side comparison of two midsize sedans, the 2017 VW Passat vs 2017 Honda Accord near Washington, DC, to help make the experience a little easier.

If you’re looking for a car that is great for your commute to Georgetown University, the VW Passat takes the win. Although the Fusion features a standard 2.5L inline-4 powertrain, it only gets 21/32 MPG city/hwy1, while the Passat sports a 1.8L inline-4 engine and achieves an impressive 23/34 MPG city/hwy2. Although the Fusion reaches a higher speed of 175-hp, compared to the Passat's 170-hp, it greatly lacks in terms of torque. Producing only 175 lb.-ft. of torque, the Passat reigns supreme with its 184 lb.-ft. of power. Enjoy your weekends cruising around in the Passat to National Geographic Museum and beyond and worry less about stopping at the pump.

The VW Passat embodies a family-sedan exterior. With fine lines throughout the domed hood, the 4-bar grille with chrome accents, and the unmistakable Volkswagen emblem that bring it all together, this vehicle is sure to impress. The Fusion, with a wide front fascia and a shell-like hood, doesn’t look quite as classic and tidy as the Passat. Setting these sedans apart in terms of exterior features is the all-season tires standard on the Passat, but you’ll have to opt for those when you choose the Fusion, as they are only offered as avalialbe.

When it comes to cabin and cargo space, the 2017 Passat vs 2017 Fusion come in close. With 44.3 inches of front legroom in the Fusion and 42.4 inches in the Passat, both allow for plenty of space for you and your copilot to stretch out. The Passat does allow for slightly more legroom in the rear, coming in at 39.1 inches and the Fusion at 38.3 inches. Your larger passengers will appreciate the extra space in the Passat, offering 58.5 inches of shoulder room in the rear, along with 58.5 inches of headroom. The competitor comes in short with only 56.9 inches of rear shoulder room and 58.2 inches of headroom, so taller riders may not feel as comfortable in the Fusion as they would in the Passat.

Now that you’ve finished reading this head-to-head comparison of the 2017 VW Passat vs 2017 Ford Fusion near Washington, DC, it’s clear to see taht the Passat takes the win. Stop in at Pohanka Volkswagen of Capitol Heights to test drive the 2017 Passat and get on the road as soon as today. We are conveniently located at 1720 Ritchie Station Court in Capitol Heights, MD. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Amazing service. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Victoria and her management helped me get into an awesome car. I got a really great price point for a top of the line vehicle. This is honestly the first time I didn't feel rushed and swindled into buying a car. Buy here-- trust me when I tell you that you will be glad you did.

Pretty good service. I took my car here to get a tire replaced under my Fidelity warranty which is unfortunately something that I've had to do every year elsewhere in the DMV. Service was local, quick and easy. It was done to my satisfaction within a day because I needed a new wheel as well. Thanks again!

5 stars for Josue Febres, my Sales Consultant, and Jay Adelson, Director of Finance, for making the car shopping and buying experience informative, thorough, fun, super friendly, and with zero pressure. Everything was transparent, Josue was super patient with me asking 1000 questions, taking my time to make any decisions, and looking at other options, both new and pre-owned. He asked the right questions and listened to understand what it is that I was looking for, needed vs. wanted, he did not waste my time with suggestions that were off the mark or too expensive. They certainly have customer service in the bag. I purchased a 2019 e-Golf SE after they worked with me and gave me several discounts. I can't speak to the other Sales Consultants, but I highly recommend Josue no matter what you are looking for. He will do his best to find you something that you like. It's a big dealership with a huge lot, 3 showrooms, and tons of inventory.
