A more powerful 2.0-liter TDI with 168 horses and a six-speed DSG transmission returns a fuel consumption of 47,9mpg UK (5,9 liters/100km) and is priced from £31,025.

Even if you opt for the entry-level model or the range-topping variant, you will get Volkswagen’s 4MOTION four-wheel drive system but also climate control, cruise control and Alcantara upholstery.

“This new version is offered in an estate car configuration, and it closes the gap between the conventional Passat Estate and SUVs such as the Tiguan. The rationale here: many car drivers who use their car as a towing vehicle, or in light off-road situations,” adds the car maker.
