Trim:

GT

A good option if you want lots of kit, but at this price the Passat Estate is straying into the same territory as some more upmarket (albeit smaller and less well equipped) rivals. It comes with 18in wheels, a digital instrument cluster, leather and Alcantara upholstery and a panoramic sunroof. The most powerful petrol and diesel versions also get adjustable dampers and trapezoid exhaust pipes.

Engine:

2.0 TDI

Our pick of the range in manual guise, this engine is punchy and flexible enough to offer easy overtaking when you want it, and is low-revving and quiet enough at a motorway cruise. Avoid the six-speed automatic gearbox if you can – it’s an older 'box than the seven-speed auto in other Passats and is a bit slow to respond at times and doesn’t help fuel economy. Also available in the jacked-up, four-wheel-drive Alltrack model, as a manual only; well worth considering given that it's remarkably capable off-road, while also being classier and bigger inside than most of the SUVs it competes with.
