From £19,620
A fine package, but we'll wait for the 168bhp diesel.

What’s new?VW has fitted the Passat with the same FSI 197bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged engine used in the Golf GTi.What’s it like?The engine pulls smoothly and strongly, and revs freely, the six-speed gearbox is precise and slick and the interior matches solidity with comfort.Problem is, a 170bhp turbodiesel is on the horizon, and that promises to offer similar strengths, plus increased torque and greater fuel economy.Should I get one?This is a good package, no doubt about it, but we’d wait to try the diesel first before plumping for petrol.
