Which used Volkswagen Passat estate should I buy?
Avoid the 113bhp 1.6-litre FSI petrol. It's just about okay when there's only you in the car, but life becomes a struggle with a full load on board.
Our favourite engine is the 138bhp 2.0 TDI. It's not the most powerful in the range, but it offers more-than-adequate performance. There's another, more powerful 167bhp 2.0 TDI unit which gives a very nice drive, while the 104bhp 1.9 TDI offers reasonable performance thanks to strong pulling power.
