Full specifications


The Passat Alltrack - like the standard estate - is cavernous inside with a huge boot. There's 639 litres of space with the seats up, far more than a BMW 5 Series Touring and an Audi A6 allroad. The boot opening is nice and wide, so loading things like pushchairs or bicycles is easy. There's hardly any load lip either, making it easy for dogs to jump in and out.

This generation of Passat has gone more upmarket than its predecessor and nowhere is this more noticeable than in the cabin. The quality is impeccable with a solid feel to all the controls and lots of high quality materials, although we're surprised a car at this price comes with cloth seats rather than leather as standard.

It's easy to find a good driving position thanks to lots of adjustment in the steering column and the seat, while even putting both front seats all the way back still gives more than adequate rear legroom. Indeed, those in the back are well looked after with lots of headroom and very comfortable seats.

The standard 'Discover' Navigation comes with a high resolution 6.5-inch colour touchscreen and it's a very easy system to familiarise yourself with. It has all the usual functions including DAB and Bluetooth for both phone calls and streaming music. It's preloaded with European mapping and is quick to route, plus will give you suggested diversions if there's traffic on your route.

Standard equipment is based on the Passat GT model, so the Alltrack comes well equipped - as you'd expect given the list price. All cars have adaptive cruise control, the collision avoiding 'front assist' system, three-zone climate control, Bluetooth, city emergency braking and satellite navigation as standard.
