Being a wagon, it's elongated, low profile and very sleek. The front grille blends seamlessly into the headlights and it's all very graceful. I find a wagon like the Passat wins in the style stakes compared to a bulky SUV. This is streamlined design and it works.
Inside the car is lovely, too. The new Passat comes in just this one spec so it's all here - leather appointed seats, a leather steering wheel and gearshift that all look fabulous together.
The centre console is very nicely designed with some metallic accents and a few good tactile features and it feels premium. It also helps that everything is within reach and functional, too.
