2018 Volkswagen Passat vs 2018 Ford Fusion

Split screen images of the 2018 Volkswagen Passat and the 2018 Ford Fusion

The 2018 Volkswagen Passat and the 2018 Ford Fusion are helping to prove that bigger is not always better. These midsize sedans provide plenty of space for up to five passengers (even adults) and a generous mix of trim levels that allow customers to find a model that offers just the right mix of value and amenities for their lifestyle.

While both sedan models have a lot to bring to the table, one provides a little bit more bang for car shoppers buck with a standard warranty that can't be beat. Find out which model we think should be first on your list to visit at the dealership below.

The Volkswagen People First Warranty

As you can see from the specs above, the 2018 Volkswagen Passat and the 2018 Ford Fusion are pretty evenly matched in starting MSRP, base power, and cargo space. Though, the 2018 Passat does have a leg up on fuel economy which could be important to drivers who have a long commute or plan to put a lot of miles under their tire.

We believe the main thing that sets these sedans apart this year, aside from sedan shoppers personal preference on design and interior layout, is the Volkswagen People First Warranty that comes standard with every 2018 Passat purchase.

The Volkswagen People First Warranty is a limited and transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers drivers for 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. This means that not only do customers who purchase the 2018 Passat drive off the lot with the added assurance that their investment will hold up, but the warranty will remain valid after a vehicle sale (for the period of the original warranty) if for some reason you decide to upgrade your vehicle in a few years. The Volkswagen warranty can't be matched by the 2018 Ford Fusion and makes the 2018 Passat our pick for the sedan option bringing the most value to the table.
