Review

Classy, comfortable, refined: the Passat is very recommendable. It's not a handling masterpiece, but it is surefooted and, because the jump in price is justifiable next to mainstream rivals including the Vauxhall Insignia and Ford Mondeo, we'd rate it above both. Its big selling point is space and practicality - the rear seats and boot are huge - but here it is still pipped by the cheaper Skoda Superb, which is our favourite non-premium rival. And if you are looking for the ultimate premium executive, both the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series offer more: the A4 has an interior that feels genuinely a cut above, while the 3 Series is absolutely the keener driver's choice.

This mainly brings sportier styling inside and out.

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.
