Review

Comfortable and pretty refined: the VW 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.

Range-topping R-Line trim takes the Passat to the next level. It has R-Line specific styling tweaks inside and out, 18in alloy wheels, Nappa leather seats, three-zone climate control, keyless entry, lane assist and an additional USB-C charger in the rear. Due to the cost, we find it hard to recommend this trim level, though.

If you're after a diesel this would be our choice. It's smoother, more powerful and punchier than the 1.6 TDI 120, and even more efficient.
