I sat in a Jetta, then I sat in the Pasat, I was blown away. I just loved the styling it is basically a copy of an Audi's interior. + its nicer !

The two cars (the Jetta and Passat) are both copies of Audis. Also, the interior in the Audi would be better. I still would have gotten a smaller car.

The Jetta is much lighter than the Passat. And no, the V6 Passat (AWD or FWD) isnt really fast at all. It's a little bit slower than a I4 Camry or Accord. Just take a look at the JEtta vs. Passat (2004, 2005).

4motion GLX V6 Passat
3725lbs/190hp = 19.6 lbs/hp (ouch)

VR6 Jetta GLI
3175lbs/200hp = 15.9lbs/hp

As you can see the Passat is a pretty hefty load to be carrying around. Not a very quick car. I'll show you some other vehicles power/weight ratio to show you how your Passat compares to other cars.

(All are 2005's)

Accord EX V6 Sedan
3375lbs/240hp = 14.1lbs/hp

Accord EX I4 Sedan
3150lbs/170hp = 18.5lbs/hp

Impala SS V6 S/C'ed
3600lbs/240hp = 15lbs/hp

Maxima SE V6
3425lbs/265hp = 12.9lbs/hp

Civic EX Sedan
2600lbs/127hp = 20.5lbs/hp

(All 2005's)

Corolla LE 1.8 I4 Sedan
2550lbs/130hp = 19.6lbs/hp

This means you should have acceleration on right on par with that of a Corolla with the low output 1.8.

Corolla XRS 1.8 I4 Sedan
2675lbs/170hp = 15.7lbs/hp
