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.

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.

The range-topping 236bhp twin-turbo 2.0 BiTDI diesel feels genuinely fast and, thanks its standard four-wheel drive’s added traction, even slippery surfaces don't curtail it greatly. it is pricey, though, and quite gruff under hard acceleration.
