The Volkswagen Passat is extremely well-built and features a spacious and rather sumptuous cabin. This stylish and practical vehicle is an ideal family car or executive saloon and comes with efficient and cost-effective engine options.
The sleek Passat sports a number of eye-catching features, such as 16-inch alloy wheels and colour-keyed fixtures that include bumpers, door handles and power-adjustable and heated door mirrors. The latter come with integrated indicators, while further illumination includes daytime running lights, rear number plate LED lighting and a high-mounted brake light. A Urano Grey paint scheme comes as standard, while a range of optional colours are also available, including Pure White, Night Blue and Crimson Red.
A roomy and extremely comfortable five-person cabin provides adjustable and lumbar-supporting front seats. The vehicle’s steering wheel and gearshift knob are trimmed with soft leather, and the eye is also drawn to brushed chrome inlays on doors, dashboard and centre console. Other standard features include electro-mechanical speed-sensitive power steering, front and rear electric windows, air conditioning, a 12-volt power point, cup holders, large door compartments and an illuminated, lockable and cooling glovebox. The Passat possesses a minimum-capacity 586-litre boot.
A 1.6-litre 88kW diesel engine, paired with six-speed manual transmission, is fitted as standard. This produces as much as 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 105g/km. For optimal performance, a 2.0-litre 110kW petrol unit delivers 0-100km/h in a little over nine seconds (0-80km/h in roughly 7.2 seconds), while still managing to return up to 4.2 l/100km. Start/stop system and regenerative braking are included as standard.
An eight-speaker sound system (with a CD player and DAB radio) can be operated using steering wheel-mounted controls. Also included as standard are a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen and Bluetooth, SD and AUX connectivity.
The Passat comes with Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star rating, and driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and tyre pressure monitors. Among the vehicle’s passive safety features are three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags. Security is maintained with the inclusion of an electronic engine immobiliser, an alarm and remote central locking.
