A large family car that's been through six design generations since it arrived on the scene in 1973. Almost unrecognisable when compared to its original design, the Passat remains one of the best-selling vehicles in the world. In 2020, the saloon struggle is real with many manufacturers giving up their battle and switching to the all-popular SUV. But the Passat hopes to offer something firmly in the middle of the mid-size saloon class, offering a decent price with a quality interior.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat has some stiff competition in the midsize segment. Less than a new design and more of a refresh, is a new look enough to keep the Passat relevant in an SUV-dominated world?
Comfortable and pretty refined: the Passat is very recommendable if you're looking for a classy executive car with more interior space than the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 or Mercedes C-Class. If you are a buyer who puts interior feel and refinement at the top of your list of priorities, the big Volkswagen is as good a buy as you’ll find at this level.
“Combining intuitive technology, a spacious interior and dynamic styling with familiar convenience, reliability and comfort. Everything about the new Passat is designed to make your busy life easier.”
