Cabin could be more spacious as tall passengers need more headroom in the rear

Nothing really

Big potholes can be felt

Noisy diesel engine

Understeers a fair bit under hard cornering

Volkswagen Passat
  • Lack of petrol engine on offer
  • Interior looks similar to the other Volkswagen cars, so the cabin lacks the wow factor
  • Not as practical and spacious as its rival Skoda Superb
