If you’re already driving a Volkswagen Passat GT, you already know that an awesome commute is possible.

“With 280 horsepower, its powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine has enough power to keep commuters going on their daily drive,” says Matt Smith, Senior Editor at CarGurus.

To determine the cars worthy of their Top Cars for Your Commute list, the editors at CarGurus examined vehicular attributes including mileage variation, commuting efficiency, comfort, vehicle efficiency, alternative-fuel choices, and horsepower.

“The GT represents the best of what Passat has to offer,” says Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and After Sales for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Its V6 engine is powerful, yet efficient, it sits low for better driving dynamics and the interior and exterior styling is amped up for a sportier look. We think it’s a great choice for a daily driver and are honored that CarGurus agrees.”
