Versatile and rather good-looking, the Passat Estate offers even more space than its sedan sibling. This sophisticated family car also comes with plenty of standard equipment and is very cost-effective to run.
The five-door Passat Estate features a number of attractive features as standard, including, 16-inch alloy wheels, a black front grille – with chrome-trimmed louvres – and black roof rails. Complementing the vehicle’s standard Urano Grey paint scheme are body-coloured elements that include bumpers, door handles and door mirrors. Exterior lighting comprises, among other things, separate daytime running lights, a high-level brake light and an LED-lit rear number plate.
A spacious and extremely comfortable five-person cabin provides height-adjustable and lumbar-supporting seats for front-row occupants, and the driver can find his or her ideal position with a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel. The latter is multifunctional and leather-trimmed for optimal convenience and comfort. Other standard features include speed-sensitive power steering, an auto-hold electronic parking brake, front and rear electric windows, air conditioning, a heated rear windscreen and a 12-volt socket. A 650-litre boot should be big enough for most purposes but with rear seats folded, there are 1,780 litres of cargo space to make use of.
A 1.6-litre 88kW petrol engine is fitted as standard, delivering up to 4.1 l/100km and a 110g/km CO2 emissions figure. A 1.6-litre diesel option is even more fuel-efficient, returning as much as 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 104g/km. All models come with regenerative braking and start/stop system.
An eight-speaker sound system (with a CD player and DAB radio) provides audio entertainment. A 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and SD and AUX inputs are included as standard too.
The vehicle comes with a five-star safety rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. Driver aids such as Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control and tyre pressure sensors are standard with all models. ISOFIX preparation, three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders and multiple airbags are among a range of passive safety elements included. The car is secured with an engine immobiliser, alarm and remote central locking.
