Review

Comfortable and pretty refined: the Passat is very recommendable if you're looking for a classy executive car with more interior space than the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 or Mercedes C-Class.

This is the top-spec for the hybrid models, and mirrors the R-Line Edition trim with a 9.2in infotainment system, adaptive suspension, a powered boot, keyless entry, matrix LED headlights, and 10.3in Active Info digital dials.

Combines brisk performance with low company car tax and an electric-only range of up to 36 miles. Well worth considering if you're a business user.
