The VW Passat GTE is spacious and refined and has a 31-mile electric-only range. It's a great option for company car users.read the full model review
Includes air-con, 16in alloy wheels, a multi-function steering wheel, colour touch-screen, digital radio, Bluetooth and a USB input, but it’s still worth the extra needed to jump up to more lavishly equipped SE.
This engine is smooth and promises good fuel economy, but it has to be worked quite hard if you want decent pace because it’s a fairly low-powered engine in a big car. The optional seven-speed automatic 'box (a six-speed manual is standard) goes some way to concealing the relative shortage of power and actually reduces CO2 emissions, so could well be the better bet.
