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.

SwiftQuote helped me get the highest possible price for my car, when many dealers around were low-balling me. Very impressed with their response time and how fast I managed to sell my car. The dealer that bought my car was also very genuine and it was a fuss free process, 10/10 would recommend.
