VW Passat 2015 review

Auto Express

07 January 2015

The new Passat feels built to last. It’s beautifully crafted with all the buttons and switchgear operating with suitable weight and precision. The ergoComfort driver’s seat is great over longer distances – but we think it’s worth speccing the leather if you plan on spending a lot of time behind the wheel. It adds an even greater touch of class to the cabin, and works well with the chrome flashes and aluminium inserts on the dashboard.

Our car came fitted with a host of options but most buyers shouldn’t feel the need to spec anything over and above the mid-range SE. Those cars improve on the already generous S specification by adding 17-inch wheels, adaptive cruise control and front and rear parking sensors. The SE also includes the Driver Profile Selection, the ergoComfort driver’s seat and dusk-sensing headlights. The SE Business tested here also adds sat-nav, front fog lights , tinted rear windows and electric-folding door mirrors for just £700 more.
