There is plenty of space on offer in the cabin, with room for four adults to travel in perfect comfort (five adults would result in a bit of a squeeze for the rear passengers though!) and an absolutely massive boot too.

This Passat has a perfect pedigree. It was supplied new by Citygate Volkswagen of Ruislip and was originally registered to them – presumably as a demonstrator. They then supplied it to a gentleman from Oxford in October 2012 who has owned the car ever since and looked after it exceptionally well. There is a full service history with six stamps in the book, all from Citygate VW. Together with the MOT records, this top notch history obviously confirms the low mileage of just over 60,000 beyond doubt and also proves that the vehicle has received the best possible maintenance throughout its life. It is presented in superb condition throughout, drives exactly as it should and looks very sharp in its gleaming metallic black paintwork with complementing black interior. It is set off in particular by the sporty alloys, Mercedes-style door mirror integrated side indicators, handy roof rails, plus the classy chrome touches on the front grilles, side strips, rear bumper and side window surrounds. The interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed steering wheel and gearknob, brushed stainless steel effect centre console, dashboard and door inlays, plus the chrome effect trim on the door handles, steering wheel, gearknob, instrument dial and air vent surrounds. This vehicle also benefits from its original set of tailored to fit velour overmats. If you are looking for a large family estate car with an automatic gearbox and low running costs then the extremely well built and reliable Passat TDI should be top of your list. With this cars absolutely top notch supplier and one private owner; full Volkswagen service history provenance backing up the low mileage – I think you will find it virtually impossible to find a superior example in this price bracket. Lovely; genuine and unmolested vehicle that is an absolute credit to its previous owner. Very rare, sought after vehicle and excellent value at only £8,695!
