There are sedans out there that drive well, and provide their owners with a luxurious experience. And then there are sedans that can do all of that, and much more. The term, ‘leaving an impression’ is one that has been as widely used, as it is widely understood. Many of us can also agree that first impressions do count; from that first moment you were to meet the future in-laws, to snagging that job that could change your life, or even to ink an important deal.

When it comes to choosing a family car, the buying journey can be done rather easily; that is if you are looking for something quite ordinary. But choosing one that provides excellent ride comfort for all its occupants, one that indulges you with features usually associated with more luxurious cars, and how about one that is entertaining from behind the wheel… The Volkswagen Passat is all of that, and more.

Styled to deliver presence wherever it goes, with its expressive contours and its sporty stance; the Volkswagen Passat is also a driver’s car no-less. The suspension is tuned to deliver both a pliant ride, and still excite around the bends.

Ease on the throttle, and its efficient two-litre turbocharged engine, responds with effortless vigour. A 7-speed DSG transmission not only shifts between gears quicker than you can blink your eyes, it does this smoothly, delivering a seamless driving experience.

Beyond delivering an exhilarating drive, the Passat also boasts a well equipped interior, where you can indulge yourself with its quality Nappa leather upholstery, paired to ventilated front ergoComfort seats… ideal, especially if you are one who spends lots of time on the road. A well-packaged interior translates to generous passenger room for both front and rear occupants. Those at the rear also benefit from an automatic sunshade and rear window shades, for a little more comfort and privacy. How about a panoramic sunroof for added light, or the added convenience of a handsfree boot?

Luxury does not just stop at how comfortable an interior can get, but also how seamlessly a car can connect you to the world while on the move. The intuitive Discover Pro infotainment system is designed to make life a little easier. Fronted by a generous 9.2-inch touch screen, the infotainment is easy to navigate, and even recognises left and right swiping gestures, making light work of finding your intended destination. Both Apple and Android devices are recognised, allowing you to connect selected apps and even your playlist to the audio system. A digital cockpit adds to even greater amounts of flexibility in how you can have your drive data displayed.

Helping you to get to your destination safely, is a priority with Volkswagen; and the Passat is equipped with a suite of active and passive safety equipment, designed to aid in keeping you safe. From monitoring with its Rest Assist Fatigue Detection System to ensure that you are alert enough to drive; to the radar sensors that line the rear, to keep an eye on your blindspots. In the event that an accident occurs, six airbags provide you with the assurance of all-round protection.

The German built Volkswagen Passat not only leaves more than just a great first impression to those around you. It also will leave a good impression the moment you get behind the wheel.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
