Your car has an awesome interior. I always loved how those looked. The Subaru won't be up to par with that, but it'll still have a decent one. If your car is a stick, then I'm sure you love that tranny. It shifts like butter. The Subaru will be a bit rougher, but still very good. The power of the Subaru is going to blow away your Passat. The handling is better too, plus you'll have AWD.
All in all, not a bad switch.
