Offering even more space and value for money than the saloon variant, the Volkswagen Passat Estate is a family-focused car ideally suited to your Motability needs. The German firm’s trademark build quality delivers confidence and security, while any adaptations that are needed won’t compromise on either. Comfortable and spacious, this purposeful estate delivers on all levels.
A smart, modern look gives the Passat Estate impressive road presence, with sporty standard-fit alloy wheels hinting at the car’s premium quality. Slender curves along the body blend seamlessly with the estate’s large proportions, and a stylish front end is completed by a sleek, chrome-finished grille. Large headlamps give optimum visibility at night, and can be upgraded to LED lamps for added appeal.
Settle inside the comfortable and supportive cabin and you’ll immediately notice Volkswagen’s meticulous attention to detail, which has been applied to every high-quality material. Eye-catching chrome detailing adds style to the hard-wearing and smartly-designed dashboard. Meanwhile, a helpful satellite navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity allows you to stay fully connected while driving.
The Passat Estate’s practicality means you’ll be free to adapt the vehicle according to your requirements. The 650-litre boot enables you to carry folded wheelchairs or bundles of luggage – whatever is needed for each trip.
The diesel engines on offer make for an energetic and rewarding driving experience, with the range-topping 2.0-litre 240PS 4MOTION unit generating plenty of power for long-distance cruising. The six or seven-speed DSG twin-clutch transmission creates a smoother ride when fitted, and complements the car’s optimised suspension. The cushioned drive is enhanced further by a rigid body which helps to shut out road and wind noise.
At 85kg lighter than the previous model, the Passat Estate’s significant weight savings allow for both increased agility and cost-effective motoring. For example, the BlueMotion 1.6-litre TDI unit returns a frugal 76.3mpg combined and CO2 emissions of only 95g/km. You can expect it to return low running costs for the length of your three-year lease.
As one of Volkswagen’s best-selling models the Passat has a strong reputation for safety, with a wealth of technology supporting superb build quality to give you peace of mind on the road. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) combines a number of intelligent features which work in harmony to keep you in complete command of the estate. Meanwhile, the numerous airbags fitted as standard alongside adjustable head restraints explain the unbeatable five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
