Review

Classy, comfortable, refined: the Passat is very recommendable. 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.

Trim: GT

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.

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.
