Volkswagen Passat Estate rivals

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.
