The Passat is a midsize sedan with a trunk size of 15.9 cubic feet, which is above average in its class. The trunk can hold a significant amount of luggage or other items.
In terms of capacity, the Passat’s trunk can fit two large check-in bags, typically larger than carry-on bags, and used for air travel. It can also hold three carry-on bags, which are smaller bags allowed on board a plane and stored in the overhead compartment. Additionally, there is still some space left for smaller items such as a backpack or a purse.
The rear seat can be folded down in a 60/40 split for even more storage space. This means the middle can be divided into two parts, with one side folding down and the other remaining upright. This can be useful for carrying more oversized items that do not fit in the trunk, such as a bike or a large piece of furniture.
Inside the cabin, the Passat has several bins and cubbies for storing small items such as wallets, phones, and other personal belongings. There is also a standard glovebox for storing documents or other small items. The door pockets are decent and can hold water bottles or similar things.
