Pros & cons


Upmarket image, decent load carrier, excellent build quality, comfortable on the move


Other estates carry more, new price premium over larger alternatives

The estate version of the reliable Passat offers modest improvements in carrying capacity over its predecessor but brings with it the better quality and a more involving driving experience introduced by the Passat saloon. A roomier, more comfortable interior and handsome styling make the Passat estate a desirable large family car, while there are some options for the luggage area that help create a truly versatile load carrier.
