VW Passat Estate R-Line 2019

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

This is probably the best all round company car I've ever had. The spec is good, it drives well, is comfortable. Takes my tools and equipment with ease and so far, it's bullet-proof. The big glass roof is great in all weathers. I keep the blind open as it's a cheap and flimsy thing that spoils the look of an otherwise quality cabin. I commute regularly from the West Midlands to London and the South East for work and it eats up the miles. I'm 6'4" tall and never get uncomfortable, the heated seats make sure of that. I paid for the heated windscreen as an option and it really was money well spent. Again, there are other estate cars out there but I think for the money, this is a good bet.

How reliable do you find the car?

This is my 3rd Passat company car. I had a CC and a saloon before. Both were bullet-proof as is this. The only niggle was a software update that took ages to get sorted which affected the radio, sat-nav etc. That's been done and so far, so good.

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

For my job, this car is far and away the best option of all the vehicles available. Its roomy, comfortable and well equipped and isn't too bad looking for a boxy German estate car...
