Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

Latest Passat models build on their reputation for high standards of quality, and still rank among the best choices in this class. Revised rather than completely re-designed, to keep it ahead of rivals such as Mondeo. Changes to the bodywork include new lights both front and rear, a larger corporate grille and flashings of chrome, while there is the choice of excellent petrol and diesel units.

This includes the satisfyingly swift TDI PD 130.

What owners say...

 The 1.9TDI PD Engine with the 130BHP very quick indeed pulls like a train even with the car full,car does not even struggle also the blue speedometer when lights are on looks very good.

 Decent size boot for a saloon, plenty of space in side, good fuel economy - around 48mpg.
