There’s loads of space inside a Passat. Leg- and headroom in the back is plentiful, too.
The boot is huge, with 585 litres in the saloon, which is bigger than just about any rival. With 650 litres of capacity in the Estate model, it’s 2nd only to the Superb. Brilliantly, that space doesn’t decrease in the plug-in hybrid GTE. If you want petrol-electric power and boot space, the Passat GTE Estate is as good as it gets.
Fold down the rear seats and you’ll get 1,780 litres of space, which is verging on van-like. The saloon’s rear seats also fold down to give you 1,152 litres to play with.
There are cubbyholes galore to keep your odds and ends, from seatback pockets and deep door bins both front and back, to space under the centre armrest, a sunglasses holder in the roof and a big glovebox.
