The Volkswagen Passat has been in continuous production for more than 40 years – a sure sign of its enduring popularity. The eighth-generation Passat was released in the UK in 2015 in both four-door saloon and estate form. The former, the Passat Sedan, is a decidedly roomy vehicle that offers low running costs, making it ideal for business users and families alike.
The good-looking Passat Sedan features a front fascia that is adorned with four-louver radiator grille, which extends seamlessly into attractive trapezoidal headlights. The vehicle rides on 16-inch alloy wheels as standard too. Inside, the vehicle’s upscale cabin is fashioned using high-quality plastics and brushed chrome. Plenty of head and legroom is provided for each traveller, and the driver also benefits from a multi-adjustable seat and steering wheel.
All models feature a minimum-size 6.5-inch touchscreen display, which allows control of an eight-speaker sound system (featuring DAB radio) and Bluetooth connectivity. This practical saloon also possesses a generously proportioned 586-litre boot space, with even more capacity available when the car’s rear seats are flipped.
Most entry-level Passat Sedan models are specified with a 1.4-litre 125bhp petrol engine. This manages up to 53.3mpg and a 123g/km CO2 emission figure, while delivering 0-60mph in approximately 9.5 seconds. Petrol-electric plug-in hybrid variants, meanwhile, return as much as 166mpg and produce emissions as low as 40g/km.
A five-star rating from Euro NCAP means that the Passat Sedan is a particularly safe car to travel in. The vehicle comes with an array of protective features, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, which monitors vehicles ahead and applies brake pressure automatically to help prevent collisions.
