How does the 7th generation Volkswagen Passat compare against two of its main rivals, the Vauxhall Insignia and the Ford Mondeo? Well AutoExpress has taken all three of them for a ride in order to find out just that.
Besides the new design, the 2011 Volkswagen Passat features more interior gadgets than before, a wide range of turbocharged engines, featuring stop start technology for the diesels in order to maximize fuel economy, and improvements in terms of ride quality and interior noise.
On the downsize, the new Volkswagen Passat interior does not feel as upmarket as the one on the Insignia, plus it is not as fun to drive as the Ford Mondeo.
To see AutoExpress’s verdict though you’ll have to watch the video with the Volkswagen Passat vs the Vauxhall Insignia vs the Ford Mondeo after the jump.
