When it comes to desirability, the Volkswagen Passat has always been a little ‘Championship’ next to the ‘Premier League’ trio of executive saloons that is the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class. The Passat offers more space and comfort as well as a similar level of tech.
The Volkswagen Passat’s front seats are a very comfy place to kick back and while away the miles on a long drive. Space in the back isn’t quite as generous as in a Skoda Superb, but the VW’s softer central seat makes it better for carrying three adults side by side. Its 586-litre boot is far bigger than that of an A4, 3 Series or C-Class.
Its soft suspension makes it better suited to wafting down the motorway in comfort and quiet, something made even more relaxing by VW’s optional Travel Assist that at a press of a button will accelerate, brake and steer to keep you in your lane up to 130mph. It’s just as comfy and easy to drive in town, too, which all adds up to a thoroughly recommendable executive saloon.
