The Volkswagen Passat is classy, comfortable and roomy. True, it isn't much fun to drive, but it is surefooted and is worth the premium over many of its mainstream rivals, including the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia. The cheaper Skoda Superb is an even better buy, though, and if you're looking for the ultimate premium executive, the pricier BMW 3 Series is the class champion.

Trim:

S

Entry-level S trim is pretty sparsely equipped. It has air-con, 16in alloy wheels, but does feature an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone mirroring, digital radio and Bluetooth, but it’s well worth spending the extra on the more lavishly equipped SE Business version.

Engine:

2.0 TDI

The gutsier 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel provides just what you need. It’s punchy enough to offer satisfying pace and easier overtaking, plus its willingness to pull from low revs makes it more relaxing to drive. So much so that, unless you're a real speed demon, it’s not worth paying the extra for the 188bhp version.
