One of the most affordable saloon cars on the market, the Passat is a credible alternative to similar vehicles produced by the likes of Audi and BMW. Possessing a high-quality cabin and range of great features, the Passat is available in S, SE, GT and R-Line trims.
The Passat’s impactful front-end is dominated by a black radiator grille adorned with chrome-trimmed louvers. This is positioned flush to stylish headlights and daytime running lights. Body-coloured elements such as bumpers, door handles and door mirrors further contribute to the vehicle’s subtle good looks. A smart profile is completed by the addition of 16-inch alloy wheels. GT grades feature a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch Oxford alloys.
A spacious five-seat cabin features brushed chrome highlights on its centre console, dashboard and door trim panels. An adjustable multifunction steering wheel and a gearshift knob are both leather-clad. Both front seats are adjustable and offer lumbar support. Other standard features include an electric auto-holding parking brake, electric windows, a heated rear windscreen and air conditioning. Storage spaces include an illuminated, cooling and lockable glovebox, expansive door compartments and drink holders. A 586-litre boot can be increased to a 1,152-litre capacity, simply by folding the rear seats. GT trims and above come with Alcantara-upholstered, ergonomically designed seats and three-zone climate control.
A range of engines are available with the entry-level S grade. The most efficient option is a 1.6-litre 118bhp unit that returns as much as 70.6mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 105g/km. A 2.0-litre diesel alternative offers higher performance levels: 148bhp, 340Nm of torque, 0-60mph in less than nine seconds and a top speed of 136mph.
An eight-speaker sound system includes DAB radio and a CD player, plus a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen interface. Bluetooth®, AUX and SD connectivity is also included. A wide range of driver aids include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and Driver Alert System. SE grades add Adaptive Cruise Control and City Emergency Braking. Passive safety features such as adjustable head restraints, seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags are standard inclusions.
