Volkswagen Passat Variant 3.2 V6 4Motion Review: The BIG Shift

CK, our writer, recently moved into a new place. Instead of hiring a house mover, he did something else - he used the Volkswagen Passat Variant as his official mover.

Even with the LCD TV in place, there is still a fair amount of space left to transport several cartons, including a sizeable 33kg box containing my BOSE home entertainment system. Even the twin two- metre tall long flat packaging of the bookcases from Ikea fits nicely into the Passat Variant. All these without the need to fold down the front passenger seats…Simply amazing!

Probably the most useful feature (well, at least for me) on the Passat Variant is the electrically powered tailgate. This is especially useful when I’m carrying too many items - a simple press on the key fob, and the tailgate opens correspondingly. After loading the cargo into the car, a press of a button on the tailgate will let it close by itself.

Though we have to make no less than seven trips to transport all our belongings and new purchases from both our parents’ places to our new home, it was no hassle as the 3.2-litre V6 engine under the hood works brilliantly with the highly acclaimed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission and 4Motion four-wheel drive system. All this combination certainly provided both of us endless on-road entertainment! If only we do not have a full load behind our seats on each trip…

Till now, we are still slowly settling into our new place. Both the TV and the entertainment system are still waiting to be fixed up, while there are still cartons to be unpacked. The Passat Variant, on the other hand, has long settled in my mind as possibly one of the most capable load-luggers – impressively competent and entertaining too.

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
