Volkswagen Passat Highline 1.8 TSI (DSG) Review

Introduction

Volkswagen's Passat has been around a long time, and has morphed from a tentative toe-in-the-water saloon alternative to the Golf back in 1973 into a very capable, very sophisticated product indeed. The fact this is the eighth generation with the same name and some 22-plus million in sales gives the idea VW are happy with the brand. And rightly so; as a five-seat saloon it has traditionally vied with cars like the Mondeo, Mazda 6, Camry, Accord and Hyundai i40. But VW has upped its game with this latest version. This car can take it to the BMW 3-series for refinement, spec, and quality; the Passat is a very pleasing product.
