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
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 SCR 190
Offers good performance, but the 2.0 TDI 150 feels almost as quick, and because this engine is available only on high-end trims, it makes the Passat Estate fairly expensive. It’s not really worth the extra. Also available on the jacked-up, four-wheel drive Alltrack model, albeit only as an automatic.
