Volkswagen Passat Estate rivals

Latest Passat models build on their reputation for high standards of quality, and still rank amongst 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.
