Our Volkswagen Passat Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2017, 2019 & 2016 Volkswagen Passat model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 63% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 Passat. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 12.02 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2019 & 2016 Passat model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
