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.

Gets everything that the regular SE trim does, but also adds sat-nav and an 8.0in touchscreen.

With 148bhp, this 1.5-litre petrol engine is the one we'd go for to get a mix of potent performance, low company car tax (after the plug-in hybrid GTE), refinement and decent fuel economy – up to an official combined 47.1mpg
