Introduction

What Car? says...

More than 40 years – that’s how long the Volkswagen Passat Estate has been serving up its defining virtues of space and practicality, to families all over the British Isles and beyond.

Those early cars were basically Audi 80s underneath and, even today, the Passat Estate is very much a Volkswagen Group product at its core; it uses the same chassis, engines and gearboxes that underpin the current Audi A4 Avant, and that is no bad thing. It's a solid base from which to build a car that should ride and handle well, while providing a decent blend of power and fuel-efficiency.
