What Car? Target Price:£28,320

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.

SE Business is our favourite trim. You get LED headlights, comfort seats with greater adjustment, three-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding mirrors, tinted rear glass and in-built sat-nav.


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.
