Yep they're both built on the B5 chassis with the same engine.

A4 handles quite a bit better. I drove a B5 Passat right before I drove my car for the first time, and it's a night and day difference with the sport suspension.

Is the passat not an extended version of the B5 chassis? I don't thing the "stock" suspension setup is the same, and I'm not referring to the springs. Also, what about quattro? What about the better quality intereior? What about the fact that some VWs are made in Mexico while A4s are made in Germany?
