Volkswagen Passat leaves an impression on you not only with the luxury features it has but also with the engine quality and the driving experience. Look and Style Volkswagen Passat is a superb car which is drenched into style from one end to the other. The Passat is only associated with luxury and exclusivity, is a class in its segment. I got a chance to have a sneak preview of the new luxury wagon and have to admit that it clinched my attention. It speaks style from every corner inside out. The interiors especially take your breath away with best quality upholstery, plastic, well cushioned seats gives comfort while driving. Comfort New Passat has well thought of comfort when it entered with this Blue Motion Technology. The best is even if you sleep while driving more than you, your car will be worried about the same. It will send you signals for the same. Hmm can understand the car is so comfortable that it feels like your home that you may doze off. The seats are big and comfortable, the ac works super good. The colours used inside the car sooths you and well compliment with the interiors. Pickup Volkswagen has never disappointed with the engine quality of the car, that's what the Germans are know for. With the New Passat also they accelerate well with its pick up. I had a chance to catch up with someone who took the test drive and he said that the car is butter on roads. Its excellent while we start off, drive in speed and even after sudden brakes it picks up well. Mileage Volkswagen Passat assures excellent mileage. Best Features The car comes with great features like excellent acceleration, great driving experience, great view from the front, comfort and sooth inside, ac works good, all the car gadgets are close to the driver, the best Park assist, Attention Assist and much more. The Blue technology comes with much additional features. The looks of the car truly drives you crazy as they will surely attract every ones attention. Needs to improve Well not for me, the car comes with the luxury features which well term it in the category. Overall Experience Passat is Volkswagen's well crafted car to suit the Indian needs. The car is available in diesel option which is the best option it choice. The car has neat finish to it maintaining a right balance between comfort and luxury. If someone is looking for class and to mark a statement this is your pick.

    Anoop, Please be objective while submitting your review. Comments like drenched in style, big seats super good AC hold no water, especially when everyone knows that these things are bare basics for a car that is positioned as D segment luxury car that competes with Skoda Superb, Merc C class, BMW 3 series, etc.Please deep dive into features and quantify how passat is better than the competition. You seem to be already smitten by the VW brand and teh car even before you tested it. Being a professional in automotive field, let me tell you that VW Passat shares most of the platform and underpinnings with Skoda (which is subsidiary of VW) Superb. Superb has better features than Passat (and under-priced too). Passat is nothing but decontented version of Superb, but it is priced much higher as VW wants to maintain its premium image in the market than Skoda( as is the case in overseas markets). When you review Passat objectively, you will lose all your misplaced enthusiasm. It may be better/ worse than the competitor spec wise, but non-one can emphaticallly conclude that it is the best car in its class. Regards,

    KC. i will admit that anoop's review seems really suspicous... one that you'd expect from a volkswagen dealer :) that being said, for us owners its not going to be easy to be objective if you aren't a professional. most times we fall in love with a car and are just effusive (or otherwise).. also its difficult to be balanced when one doesnt know the technical details/differences between Skoda and VW - not everyone is privy to the info that you have.

    Dear All, I am looking at a USED Passat ( TSI 1.8 ) or a Superb ( again TSI 1.8 ), prefer colours White or Silver or any Pastel shade.Should have clocked low mileage and maintained well.I am in CHENNAI and looking for a family car for weekend runs of upto 200 kms.My running will be max 1000 kms PER MONTH.Maintenance should not be high and i would like to have the Car for at leastt 10 yrs ( My Opel Corsa 1.6 is a 2000 Model ).Need advice from existing users as well of the 2 cars.Or is the TEANA Nissan ( now avbl very cheap ) a good bet? Pl mail or call 9841078666 at Chennai.Thanks.
