Review

Comfortable and pretty refined: the 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.

Trim: SE

Even entry-level SE trim provides plenty of kit, including a 6.5in touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, air-conditioning, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, front centre armrest, 17in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, lane assist, automatic emergency braking, e-call emergency response button, automatic lights and wipers. It is our pick, unless you want in-built navigation.

Engine: 1.6 TDI

With 118bhp it provides adequate performance but it's not that smooth and it's pricier on company car tax than the 1.5 TSI 150.
