The interiors are classy; something we have come to expect from cars wearing the VW badge. The amazing plastic quality, the damped feel of the switches and even the way bins open and shut smack of superb build. Cover the badge and you could be in an Audi.
There’s loads of space with ample head, leg and shoulder room and the large overhang creates a whopping 565 litres of luggage space.
The front seats are almost perfectly bolstered and very comfortable, the rear seats get the job done but legroom, obviously, is not as much as the Superb. VW has added a few features to the Passat, the most notable being the touch screen with multi-commands.
The Passat’s cool red-and-blue lighting exudes a soothing ambience at night and there are quality touches, like the finish of the glovebox.
