When it comes to finding a midsize sedan that is sporty and fun to drive, we found two popular options to compare. In this model comparison, we looked at the 2018 Volkswagen Passat and the 2018 Chevy Cruze. Both four-door sedans have a handful of impressive features to offer but we found that the Passat is a better option for drivers looking for more power and a longer warranty. The 2018 Passat is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine compared to the Cruze's 1.4-liter.
Volkswagen also offers the best Bumper-to-Bumper warranty on their vehicles. This warranty is good for 6 years or the first 72,000 miles which is considerably better that the Bumper-to-Bumper warranty offered on the 2018 Chevy Cruze. Continue reading below to see the comparison of the two vehicles and learn more about the Driver Assistance features on the 2018 Passat.

Volkswagen wants you to feel confident when you are driving. They took the time to make sure this happens by installing Driver Assistance features in a lot of their vehicles including the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. These Driver Assistance features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Assist, Park Assist, Park Distance Control, Front Assist and Rear Traffic Alert.
Adaptive Cruise Control will help drivers to maintain a preset distance from the vehicle in front of them while the car speeds up or slows down. Lane Assist will sense if the driver starts to drift into another lane by mistake and can help correct it. Park Distance Control is helpful to drivers when they are pulling into or backing out of a parking space by displaying how much space they have behind or in front of the vehicle. Drivers who want more help with parking will find the Park Assist feature helpful. Park Assist determines if a space is big enough for your vehicle and then will help to steer you into the space while the driver operates the foot pedals.
