Get a sneak peek at some of the practical tech features you'll enjoy with the upcoming 2020 VW Passat

Well, we've finally got our first look at the upcoming 2020 VW Passat, and it's everything we've hoped it would be. This stunning and iconic midsize sedan has been a recurring favorite for Austin drivers for years now, and the 2020 model doesn't lose an ounce of its appeal, but still brings a lot of new features and tech to the table.

But while we could gush over the more aggressive exterior styling of this midsize sedan or explore the finer points of its standard Forward Collision Warning System with Autonomous Emergency Braking, we'd like to talk about one of its more practical features that we think you'll find a lot of use for while traveling around Austin: VW Car-Net® Security & Service technology.

Now, one of the best things about the 2020 VW Passat is how easily it pairs with most compatible mobile phones via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, one of the coolest things about the 2020 Volkswagen Passat is how it VW Car-Net® Security & Service technology allows you to use your phone to stay connected to your car even when you're not behind the wheel.

Picture this: You've just gone out to run some errands at the mall, and just when you get to where you're going, you realize you've left your trunk unlocked. With the 2020 VW Passat and VW Car-Net® Security & Service Technology, there's no worries. You can simply open the app and lock your doors remotely.

But that's not all it can do! Say you've been cruising around all day with the sunroof open and forget to close it when you get home. Well, the VW Car-Net® Security & Service technology is always tracking the weather, so it can give you a push notification on your phone if there's rain on the way and allow you to remotely close the sunroof so that pesky precipitation doesn't get a chance to soak the interior of your VW Passat.

VW Car-Net® Security & Service is just one of many outstanding innovations that Volkswagen has integrated with the new 2020 Passat. And if you're interested in learning more about this upcoming Volkswagen model, or want a crack at leasing a new 2019 Volkswagen Passat at our Austin, TX dealership before they're all gone, stop by our showroom at Charles Maund Volkswagen today.
