MPG

Mpg stands for miles per gallon, and is used to show how far your car is able to travel for every gallon (or 4.55 litres) of fuel it uses. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure provides a general overview of a car's fuel consumption over a variety of speeds and road types.

Insurance Group

Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.

Performance (BHP)

BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.

CO2 (g/km)

CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.

Number Of Seats

The total number of seats in the vehicle.

Road Tax

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Ten Second Review

The Volkswagen Passat Estate really brings the goods in its eighth-generation guise. It's slightly shorter, but the longer wheelbase means more space for passengers and cleverer packaging ups the luggage capacity from 603 to 650-litres with all the seats in place. UK buyers get a predominantly diesel line-up, with a 240PS all-wheel drive flagship.

Background

Utility is a surprisingly hard sell. Yes, we tend to aspire to the sort of utility we don't actually need, which is why we hanker after sports watches that can submerge to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, Arctic-spec down jackets to withstand a snow flurry in Surrey and, yes, sports utility vehicles that could cross the Darien Gap when all we really need them for is to bump over a parking kerb outside Starbucks. Genuine utility isn't quite so aspirational. Seats that you can clean a baby's worst efforts from, room in the back for a bookcase from IKEA, metronomic reliability; it's what people need but not what draws people into showrooms looking for a dotted line to sign. That's the size of the challenge facing Volkswagen's current generation Passat Estate, a car that does utility utterly brilliantly. Especially in this updated form.

Driving Experience

Under the bonnet, the key news for Passat buyers is the introduction of an extensively re-worked version of this model's volume 150PS diesel engine, now badged the 2.0 TDI EVO 150PS. As before, it can be had with a 7-speed DSG auto 'box and now features Active Cylinder Shutdown for greater efficiency, the first time that this feature has been fitted to a Volkswagen diesel engine. Diesel and 4MOTION 4WD feature as usual in the 'Alltrack' estate variant which gains a higher ride height for limited off road ability. For petrol people, there's the VW Group's familiar 150PS 1.5-litre TSI EVO unit, available with either manual or DSG auto transmission. Up to a quarter of Passat sales are expected to be taken by the Plug-in hybrid petrol/electric GTE version, which mates a 1.4 TSI petrol engine with an electric motor. This derivative now uses an upgraded lithium-ion battery which now enables a longer 36-mile WLTP-rated driving range. Across the line-up, there's a new 'Travel Assist' feature which allows the car to be driven at highway speeds in partly automated mode.

Design and Build

This eighth generation Passat Estate was shorter and lower than its predecessor but it was given a longer wheelbase, so there's slightly more room in size. The difficulty in attracting buyers away from the likes of BMW and Audi is that you need your product to offer all the attractions of a BMW and Audi but at a more competitive price. That includes looking as expensive as these brands, which is something the Passat Estate has often struggled to achieve. Not any more. At least not from the outside, where this facelifted model looks sleek, chiselled and polished with full-LED head and tail lights that emphasise the car's width. Inside, cabin quality is at least the equal of what you'd find in more expensive premium brand mid-sized saloon, especially if you're able to stretch to one of the higher trim levels. The interior features a big central 8-inch screen and a set of optional digital 'virtual' dials. The seats, as in most Volkswagens, initially feel unyielding but are supremely comfortable over longer distances. Three adults can fit in the back too - there's far more space than you'd get in a 3 Series, a C-Class or an A4. The boot measures an enormous 650-litres under the tonneau. Fold the seats down and that extends to a huge 1,780-litres. Big storage bins in the doors and centre console add everyday utility to the cabin.

Market and Model

The estate models add just over £1,500 to the prices of the saloons and there are three trim levels to choose from - 'SE', 'SEL' and 'R-Line'. DSG auto transmission is now standard across most of the range. Prices start at just under £26,000 for the entry-level 1.5-litre TSI petrol model in 'SE' trim. The 2.0 TDI 150PS diesel unit many want starts from just under £31,000. You'll need to spend at least around £38,000 for the GTE Plug-in hybrid. All variants are well equipped, even entry 'SE' derivatives featuring full-LED headlights. 'SEL' examples can be identified by their 17-inch 'Nivelle' alloy wheels, and also offer Vienna leather seats, the Discover Navigation system with an 8-inch colour screen and Voice Control. SEL cars also have tinted rear windows and silver roof rails for the Estate. 'R-Line' trim brings 18-inch 'Monterrey' alloy wheels, sports suspension, an R-Line exterior styling pack and Nappa leather front sport seats embroidered with the R-Line logo. There are also stainless steel pedals, 3Zone climate control and black roof lining, while keyless entry and an easy open boot also feature as standard on this top trim level. The Plug-in hybrid GTE version and the SUV-style 'Alltrack' estate variant get their own specific trim specs.

Cost of Ownership

The Passat Estate is a car that sells on pragmatism, so it's a critical component of its success that the running costs of the vehicle flag up all the right numbers. Remember that despite its increasingly urbane appeal, the bulk of this car's sales will still come from fleet buyers who don't give a brass tuppence about soft-touch dashboards, USB slots or how many watts the stereo has. For them it's about bills, bills, bills; residual values, fuel economy, carbon dioxide emissions, insurance costs, servicing overhead and so on. The Passat looks like it's getting off on the right foot. Go for the 1.5-litre TSI petrol model and your combined cycle fuel economy is rated at 43.8mpg (WLTP), while your CO2 return would be rated at 125g/km of CO2 (NEDC): pretty good for a large estate. The cleanest option is the GTE Plug-in petrol hybrid version, which can now go up to 36 miles (WLTP) between charges. Aggressive pricing sees the Passat square up more or less head on with tackle like the Vauxhall Insignia and engine for engine, the Passat is a good deal more economical and cleaner to boot. Pull residual values into the equation and the Passat wins hands down.
