The Volkswagen Passat is truly a dream car for every family who wants superior safety and performance at the same time. First introduced in 1973, Passat has been one of Volkswagen's most sought-after car models.

The name Passat originally came from the German word "passatwind" which means trade wind. The Volkswagen Passat is also known as Dasher, Santana, Quantum and Crossover in other parts of the world.

Along with the Volkswagen Golf, the Passat was one of the first Volkswagen cars to have a four-wheel drive and water-cooled engine. The first generation of this car was a small compact car. It was originally offered in 2- and 4-door sedans and similar looking three- and five-door versions. These versions all had a modern fastback style design, styled by the Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Passat used the 4 cylinder OHC 1.3 l, 1.5 l, and 1.6 l petrol engines, also with choices betwen a 4-speed manual transmission or a 3-speed automatic.

Later generations of the Passat grew bigger and what we have today are mid-size and large family cars. All in all, the Passat has six generations and the fifth generation deserves some special mention with the awards it has received. Among these awards were 1999 Used Car Buyer Greatest Used Buy Awards - Most Sensible Car Award Overall & Best Family Car, 1999 Auto Express New Car Honours - Best Family Car, 1998 Car of the Year Awards - Best Family Car, 1998 Top Gear Magazine Top Cars - Best Medium Car, 1998 Which?
