Review

Classy, comfortable, refined: the Passat is very recommendable. A big selling point is space and practicality thanks to a practical boot and spacious rear seats, but here it is still pipped by the cheaper Skoda Superb. If you are looking for the ultimate premium executive, though, both the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series offer more, but carry a steeper price tag.

Trim: GT

A good option if you want lots of kit, but at this price the Passat 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.

Engine: 1.5 TSI EVO 150

If you prefer petrol power, there's only one choice: a 1.5-litre with 148bhp. In most circumstances it provides all the performance you might need, revving out keenly and feeling sprightly. However, if you find yourself trying to overtake on a steep hill or pulling a car full of people and paraphernalia, then you'll rue not having the extra mid-range slug of a diesel.
