The Volkswagen Passat is an executive saloon that offers luxury at every turn – and yet it makes a practical choice for driving with the family. Looking for even lower running costs? Take a closer look at the cutting-edge hybrid option.
For business and growing families alike, the Volkswagen Passat makes an excellent choice. The silhouette is smooth and highly refined, with a sculpted bonnet and striking alloy wheels as standard. Choose a top-spec model to gain LED headlights and dynamic full-beam lights – these contemporary touches will bolster your on-road presence. At the rear, sharp tail lights flow seamlessly from the boot-lid for a smooth finish.
You can expect the same luxurious feel in the cabin. The S, SE Business and R-Line trims feature a suite of high-quality touches – from features such as an elegant analogue clock in the entry-level model to the supportive sports seats in the top-spec Passat.
The dashboard is neatly arranged across the line-up, with the 6.5-inch touchscreen at its core. Flashes of chrome around the air vents and steering wheel heighten the cabin’s ultra-refined look. Meanwhile, the rear seats provide plenty of space for adult passengers to ride in comfort – and the spacious boot offers a class-leading 586 litres of space.
A whole host of engines is on offer, with something to suit everyone. Take your pick from four diesel options – ranging from the highly frugal 148bhp 2.0-litre, to the most powerful 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel providing an impressive 237bhp. The latter is fitted with an outstanding DSG automatic gearbox – as is the petrol-electric hybrid GTE variant, the most economical choice. It boasts an electric-only range of up to 30 miles, plus a performance boost from a petrol engine.
Safety and Technology
Another benefit of the new Passat is that it comes with the highest, five-star crash safety rating from Euro NCAP. That means you’re in safe hands when you and your family hop on board.
Intelligent, safety-enhancing features include lane assist, predictive pedestrian protection and Emergency Assist – which brings the car to a halt automatically if the driver is injured. Smart driver aids prove particularly useful for urban driving – these include Traffic Jam Assist and Park Assist to reduce stress on busy streets.
As for technology, a generous suite of standard equipment includes DAB digital radio, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity. You can also add a 12.3-inch Active Info display if you want, which can transform into a large satellite navigation screen for your convenience.
