The Volkswagen Passat is classy, comfortable and roomy. True, it isn't much fun to drive, but it is surefooted and is worth the premium over many of its mainstream rivals, including the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia. The cheaper Skoda Superb is an even better buy, though, and if you're looking for the ultimate premium executive, the pricier BMW 3 Series is the class champion.

Trim:

S

Entry-level S trim is pretty sparsely equipped. It has air-con, 16in alloy wheels, but does feature an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone mirroring, digital radio and Bluetooth, but it’s well worth spending the extra on the more lavishly equipped SE Business version.

Engine:

1.6 TDI

The 1.6-litre diesel is what you might term adequate. It has enough guts to attain a motorway cruise or get you away from the lights effectively, but relatively steadily. You'll have to change down often and work it pretty hard to get up to speed with any great vigour, which is why we favour a bit more power.
