2019 Volkswagen California for adventure in the nature, video review



A Weekend Adventure in a 2019 Volkswagen Passat SEL

Quick review of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat SEL

Will make you feel:As if you should road trip every weekend.

Ease of parking (from 1 to impossible):The Passat is no Smart Car, but I had no trouble parallel parking or swinging the Passat into a small driveway.

Gas sipper or guzzler:We drove more than 200 miles, including a voyage up a small mountain, on a half-tank of gas.

Who should be behind the wheel?Those who want to feel sporty-slash-classy

Dashboard intimidation factor:Low to medium, thanks to the faux wood grain console and comforting analog clock.

Space for:Four adults comfortably.

Best for:Couples, small families (well behaved children only—the leather seats!)

This fall, my girlfriend and I headed upstate from our apartment in Brooklyn to celebrate my birthday (21 and holding!). On the agenda: Hiking and exploring Westchester and Ulster counties. What should have been on the agenda: More driving!

We don't own a car, so it's possible that merely being in an enclosed space on four wheels with complete control of our own speed and temperature is unnaturally thrilling to us. But I can honestly say that driving the 60-odd miles to our Airbnb in Peekskill was one of the most pleasant 90 minutes I've spent behind the wheel.

Interior of the 2019 Volkswagen Passat SEL

As I drove, I constantly discovered new features of the 2019 Passat SEL. The touchscreen radio with USB connectivity allowed me to easily toggle through the zillion channels available through SiriusXM or switch to listening to my favorite podcast through my phone. The speaker system, powered by Pioneer, could probably send me into next week on full blast. The side mirrors were equipped with Blind Spot monitor which illuminated an indicator light when a fellow traveler had ventured into an unseen area. And the Lane Departure Warning system actively steered the car back into my lane if I distractedly drifted off course.

Rarely have I felt a pang of excitement when opening a car trunk, but with my hands full after grocery shopping one evening of our trip, I merely waved my foot under the car's bumper and the trunk popped open. Brilliant!

Overall, our experience in the Passat SEL exceeded expectations. It sat patiently in traffic, advised me of my surroundings (thanks, rear camera), warmed my bum in the cold weather, and fit in as well at the trailhead as it did at the fancy restaurant.
