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: SEL

SEL is worth considering because it adds privacy glass, heated front seats, leather seats and power-folding door mirrors to the SE Nav's spec list.

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.
