The Volkswagen Passat has been a big success for the German manufacturer with around 22 million units sold since it first entered production in 1973.
Now in its eighth generation, the latest model came to the UK late in 2014 and has been an instant hit. It also gets the full five star rating in our review.
A hugely popular company car here in the UK too, the Volkswagen Passat is a close rival to the likes of the Ford Mondeo, Vauxhall Insignia and Mazda6 and offers a cheaper, yet almost as refined alternative to premium models like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 series.
Although arguably not the most exciting car to either drive or look at, the Volkswagen Passat is flawless when it comes to driver comfort making it a perfect motorway car choice.
