Volkswagen Passat Bluemotion 2
Positioned further up the trim scale, the Volkswagen Passat Bluemotion 2 is high quality, well kitted out, positive to drive and very environment conscious thanks to some low emission engines. What you get is a full sized saloon that holds masses of appeal for families and executives alike, thanks to some excellent designs, great all round practicality and no shortage of character. Safe, reliable and secure too, it’s clearly the best in class and has been for some years. Indeed, the engines on this model are 2.0 litre diesels that aren’t short on punch, but remain incredibly economical.
On the design front, the Volkswagen Passat Bluemotion 2 is very attractive indeed, featuring some lovely shapes and no lack of sexy curves all over the exterior. Head inside and you’ll find the cabin is a nice environment to get into, with plenty of room, a high level trim finish and even 461 litres of boot space, which makes it straightforward to use every day. Well equipped things like alloy wheels, air conditioning, electric windows, cloth seats, media connectivity, CD stereo, heated mirrors, remote locking, driver assists, service indicator, a spare wheel and front fog lights are all there. A confident performer out on the asphalt, it’s well balanced and the steering is responsive, especially in the corners. You’ll pay £8,000 used.
