The Volkswagen Passat Estate has just been named Used Estate Car of the Year by What Car? magazine.
A panel of expert judges at the magazine based their verdict on the car’s spacious boot, high-quality interior, smooth ride, good performance, low running costs and overall value for money.
This latest award comes just a few weeks after the Passat Estate GTE was named best used hybrid estate at the What Car? Electric Vehicle (EV) Awards.
Stuart Knott, National Used Car Manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “We are once again delighted that What Car? has recognised the quality, value and everyday usability of the Volkswagen Passat Estate.
“This latest award underlines that people looking for a used car can have complete confidence in the Passat Estate. It’s a compelling product for everyone from city commuters, long-distance travellers and business drivers to families and young professionals – particularly when you consider also the many benefits of buying Approved Used cars from Volkswagen Retailers.”
Thousands of top-quality Approved Used Volkswagens are available right now across the UK, and can be sourced in seconds using the Volkswagen used vehicle locator: https://usedcars.volkswagen.co.uk/en/home. Each car undergoes a thorough 142-point check by a Volkswagen-trained technician and can be reserved online for just £99; other benefits include a two-year warranty, two years of Roadside Assistance, two years of MOT test cover (subject to terms), five days of free insurance (subject to eligibility), and the offer of a 30-day/1,000-mile no-quibble exchange. Customers also have a choice of great-value funding and service plan options.
The Passat is one of Volkswagen’s best-selling models ever, with more than 30 million being handed over to customers worldwide since the model was launched in 1973. The eighth-generation Passat represented a significant engineering leap forward when it was launched in 2014, thanks to the introduction of the then new modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform, updated engine line-up and a host of safety and comfort systems including wireless App Connect. It also introduced Travel Assist; this partially-assisted level-two autonomous driving feature made the Passat the first Volkswagen that could be driven at up to 130 mph in a partially automated mode.
