On the market since 1973 and still a popular choice for families and businesses alike, the Volkswagen Passat is a smart, practical solution that comes in saloon and estate variants.
Aside from the sleek, sophisticated exterior design, one of the Passat’s main draws is its comfortable, elegant interior. Fitted with high-quality materials and plastics, and offering impressive space for both front and rear passengers, it provides a relaxing and refined driving environment. The front seats are adjustable for optimum comfort, and from SE Business trim upwards, you get an ergoComfort driver's seat with a multitude of adjustment possibilities including a cushion tilt adjustment function.
In newer iterations of the used Volkswagen Passat, you’ll benefit from the standard Composition Media infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen providing intuitive access to DAB radio, Bluetooth functions and more. Steering wheel-mounted controls allow you to operate it easily and safely while driving.
From SE Business trim up, you get the Discover Navigation satellite navigation system, which can be operated through voice control and can be connect to the brand’s Car-Net system for real-time traffic updates and other services. Choose a higher spec model for a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree camera, heated front seats and more.
There's a choice of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, which deliver a range of outputs to suit your needs. Opt for the 1.4-litre petrol for a punchy, engaging drive or the 2.0-litre diesel for plenty of pull at low revs and improved fuel economy on longer journeys. In addition to the conventional engines, there's also a GTE petrol-electric hybrid version, which can charge from a household socket in 4 hours 15 minutes, and provides a cleaner on-road experience.
The Alltrack off-road version, meanwhile, has four-wheel-drive, raised suspension, hill descent assist and silver roof rails to enhance practicality.
With safety at the heart of many models these days, it’s no surprise to see the used Volkswagen Passat stand out with a host of innovative measures. From ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, electronic stability control and traction control to systems such as automatic post-collision braking, which applies the brakes after a crash to try to avoid another collision, there’s plenty to keep you and your passengers protected.
