The Passat is a quality saloon with low running costs and lots of space and equipment. It's well built and offers families an ideal vehicle.
Being a Volkswagen the Passat has some very impressive engines to choose from including a petrol electric hybrid version which has a claimed economy of 177 mpg and emissions of 38g/km - excellent results from a great performing car. There's also a 1.6litre BlueMotion diesel unit which returns 76 mpg with emissions of 95g/km. The 2.0 litre diesel engine will return around 71 mpg and all the engines are coupled to a manual gearbox while the firm's DSG automatic transmission will affect fuel economy slightly.
The Passat makes for an excellent motorway cruiser and is incredibly quiet to drive and its suspension is designed to absorb bumps on rough roads; it also offers a responsive drive around towns and on winding country roads. The list of standard equipment is impressive with air con, alloy wheels and USB connectivity. Go up the range and the higher spec levels include touchscreen satnav, dual zone climate control, cruise control and Bluetooth connectivity. Optional extras for the Passat include a lane change system, drowsiness detector and a device that detects whether a collision is imminent and will apply the brakes if so.
The Volkswagen Passat is a practical car that will carry five adults in comfort with the boot space being a decent 565 litres. The cabin is top quality and well designed to make the VW Passat a strong contender in its segment.
