VW Passat GTE Estate review

NGC verdict 13.02.2021

Volkswagen’s Passat GTE is the company’s answer to a frequently asked question. Are there any practical, family-sized plug-in cars on the market? The PHEV Passat sits in VW’s usual spot, between mass-market and premium models, and offers lots of practicality without being a crossover/SUV. With the latest version getting a larger battery and thus boosted electric range, we see if the plug-in Passat is worthy of consideration.
