There are two sides to every story. In this case, power and efficiency. And with a turbocharged engine, you can get both. That’s why we made the 1.8L TSI engine standard in the Passat. When you’re cruising around town or on the highway, it minimizes how much fuel is used.¹ But if you need more power, like when passing another car or merging onto the freeway, the turbocharger kicks in for a quick boost to inject some fun into your drive.² It looks like both sides to this story have a happy ending.
