The Volkswagen Passat was first produced in 1973 and since then it has sold in huge quantities all around the world; in 2015, the vehicle entered its eighth generation. The Passat Estate expands on the not-inconsiderable practicality and capacity of its saloon counterpart, delivering a decidedly classy interior, huge boot and attractively restrained exterior style.
The Passat Estate comes with a number of eye-catching features as standard, such as lightweight 16-inch alloy wheels and a well-appointed, solidly built cabin. The latter includes a number of soft-touch plastic trims and facings, as well as intuitively organised, top-quality controls. The driver also benefits from a leather-clad multifunction steering wheel.
The vehicle comes with a minimum-size 6.1-inch touchscreen display which provides access to a range of features. These include MirrorLink, which pairs your compatible smartphone with the car’s own infotainment set-up, an eight-speaker sound system (with DAB radio) and Bluetooth connectivity.
One of the Passat Estate’s most noteworthy features is its class-competitive 650-litre boot space which, with 60/40 split-folding rear seats flipped, increases to a mighty 1,780 litres.
The majority of Passat Estate iterations are powered by a 1.4-litre 125bhp petrol engine, which delivers up to 53.3mpg and a 124g/km CO2 emission figure. It also produces 200Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 9.5 seconds. GTE variants, meanwhile, return as much as 166mpg and emissions as low as 40g/km, thanks to the inclusion of plug-in hybrid electric technology.
A five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP, means that the Passat Estate is an exceptionally safe car. An array of driver aids and passive protective elements are included, such as Post-collision Braking, which automatically applies braking pressure when airbags are activated.
