The Volkswagen Passat is a smart-looking executive sedan that offers all the right things. Take a gander into it and you'll surely be taken away by the roomy interior. But do not be mistaken, space isn't all that it has to offer. The Volkswagen Passat is a marvelous proposition that combines maximum practicality, comfort, luxury, and safety in a stylish package. Really, it is likely to be a better car than what you are used to.

Executive styling for the sophisticated driver

The experience of all cars starts with its exterior, and with the Passat, from the moment you set your eyes on one, you'll know that it is the right choice. With an adequately-sized chrome grille flanked by a pair of exquisite LED head lights separate LED daytime running lights and cornering lights, the front-end is reminiscent of other cars in Volkswagen's line-up.

But what really stands out isn't the familiar front-end, it is the Passat's contours and distinct body lines, its long, lowered bonnet, short overhang and a long wheelbase which works together to create a distinct, elegant look.

Ample space for passengers to travel in comfort

Open the doors and you'll be greeted with a pleasant atmosphere with a strong sense of spaciousness - thanks to the high-quality materials and its massive interior space. Unlike most other sedans, the rear bench seats easily accommodate three, with a centre seat that is wide enough to accommodate an adult.

Perhaps one of the Passat's strongest suits comes from its lengthy wheelbase, you'll see when you take a seat in it and notice the generous legroom, switch over to the rear and you might just start to wonder if you've wandered into the rear of a limousine instead. Apart from legroom, the Passat also offers excellent elbow room and headroom for all occupants.

Cutting-edge systems offering maximum safety

Up front, the Passat is equipped with a pair of outstanding head lights, casting a beam of a similar spectrum to that of daylight, illuminating the roads with excellent effectiveness while consuming less energy. The pair of automatic head lights is also packed with a simple yet useful 'Leaving Home' and 'Coming Home' feature, it illuminates your path to and from the car, providing an executive feel.

At the rear, the Passat's tail lights features an innovative LED array that changes under braking - a design that is not only unique, but also results in a prominent indication of braking.

Equipped with an advanced airbag system consisting of 6 airbags, including side impact airbags for the front seats and curtain airbags that protect both front and rear passengers, all occupants are well-protected during an accident. On top of the all-round protection offered by the airbags, the Passat is also equipped with multi-collision brake system that can limit the damage by detecting an accident and initiating the brakes to prevent further collisions.

Driver fatigue has a huge impact on driving and safety, the Passat comes with a rest assist fatigue detection system which monitors driver behavior, noting any erratic steering movement and lane deviations and alerts the driver with a visual display on the dashboard, as well as a warning sound.

Kick back, relax and enjoy a comfortable ride or drive

While the capacious interior should've sealed the deal when it comes to travelling in comfort, the Passat offers more than just that. The driver gets an ergoComfort seat that is designed for maximum comfort. There is a vast array of adjustment options to ensure that you can have the perfect ergonomically supported seating position while the memory function allow you to replicate that setting every time you get in the seat. Long drives are no longer a concern with built in massage function for the driver.

With three independently controlled temperature zones for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers, you can adjust the temperature to just what you like for ultimate comfort when on the road. The air conditioning system is also equipped with an active biogenic filter and automatic air recirculation to filter out allergens and keep the air quality at a consistently high level.

Enjoy a calm and soothing experience when driving at night with the ambient lighting system, which also makes it easier for you to find your way around in the dark.

Equipped with all you'll ever need for an enjoyable trip

A capable executive sedan should be able to haul your family along on an enjoyable road trip, with its large, comfortable interior, the Passat is definitely capable of doing so. You'll also be able to carry all the luggage you'll need in its large 586-litre boot. Of course, space alone wouldn't suffice, the Passat offers more than just that.

A high-resolution digital display provides all key information you need as you drive, meanwhile an 8.0-inch touch screen display with Bluetooth connectivity and 8 speakers provides all the entertainment you'll need for an excellent trip. Opt for the Highline trim and you'll get the 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system with an innovative gesture control.

Powered by an efficient 1.8-litre TSI petrol engine, you'll get 178bhp on tap - overtaking will never be a concern, while enjoying a low fuel consumption of 16.9km/l. Mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox, power is delivered effectively, offering a balanced and smooth ride.

By the 3rd year, power is delivered jerkingly, as smooth as a horse ride. Much accomplished than a horse carriage, but nothing more than that.

The last I know, the 1.8T Passat 7 speed DSG is the dry gearbox - the infamous DQ200

If anyone wants to buy this car, it would be wise to consider this gearbox as a consumable and best to stock up a few.

The title is just an invitation to be nitpicked. 

Better than our cars? What if we're already driving that model? What if our metrics for how good a car are differ from yours? 

These new reviews on this site are just...cringe. I'm proud to say I haven't once watched one of those lame new review videos either.

Probably all of us have a benchmark of cars that we buy.

And all are very logical choice with illogical reasoning

Must be powerful, yet fuel efficient

Must be reliable, yet when modded still able to be warranty

Must be responsive and agile like a stallion or cheetah, yet large like an elephant and small turning radius.

so we eventually have to choose a middle ground. Neither here nor there else either ridiculous fast and that's enough .

So when the bait advert of 5 best things, the writer is either incredibly brave, or blatantly reckless in the comments

And the facelift is already launched in Europe. Is this a lame attempt to drum up interest to clear stock?

They could sell it at $99999 without the need for any adverts. Job done.

    Honda driver hogs the road and ends up getting rear-ended

    This Honda road bully blocks the path of a large bus, randomly stops in the middle of the road several times and ends up getting rear-ended. There is nothing more annoying than a road hogger on a busy road, and that is what this poor bus driver had to experience. The video starts with the Honda driving slowly down the left lane, blocking the path of the bus driver. Annoyed with the car's behaviour, a man beside the driver is heard commenting "Just don't jam brakes. If not, I fall down leh.".  As both vehicles approach the traffic junction, the car suddenly stops with its hazard lights on. In an attempt to warn the car's driver, the bus driver presses his horn. However, the car remains still, which earns it a series of honks from other upset drivers as well. The bus driver chimes in with two long honks, which pushes the car to finally move off. The Honda enters the junction, swerves right, before switching back to the left lane quickly. At the same moment, the car is seen braking suddenly as the bus moves forward.  This leads to the bus hitting the yellow car from the back with a loud crash, which pushes it further up the lane.  At the last second, the car's driver angrily gets out of his vehicle to confront the bus driver.  Is road hogging an offence? According to the LTA and the Traffic Police, road hogging is considered an offence in Singapore. Drivers who drive in such a manner as to obstruct vehicles from moving at a faster speed will receive a fine of up to $1,000, an imprisonment term of 3 months and 4 demerit points. For repeated offenders, they will receive a fine of up to $2,000, an imprisonment term of 6 months and 4 demerit points.  Netizens' reactions  From the video, it is clear that the yellow car is the aggressor as the driver purposely stalls the flow of traffic and recklessly changes lanes (and jams on his brakes) without any warning. 😒 I hope that the TP sees this and invites him for a nice long kopi session soon.      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Cyclists in two separate videos disregard the red light and experience instant ragret

    Within the past 24 hours, two unrelated cases of vehicles knocking over cyclists have surfaced on Facebook. The only thing constant in the equation? Both cyclists disregarded the red man and cycled across the road anyway. Both incidents took place yesterday (July 5), with the first one being at Choa Chu Kang and the second one at Sembawang. In the first video, a female driver was driving straight ahead across a road junction along Choa Chu Kang Dr after noticing that the light had turned green. However, she noticed that a cyclist had dashed out as she was accelerating, which led to her hitting the cyclist.   Take note: there is loud screaming and graphic content in the following videos.  In the second video, a taxi was seen performing a right turn at a road junction in between Sembawang and Mandai Road when it hits a cyclist that was crossing the road at a red light.  Despite the roads being busy in both videos, the cyclists thought that they were able to beat the red light and just YOLO-ed their way through. Honestly, if I were them, I would be in constant "ragret" over this one stupid decision.  Netizens' reactions It didn't take long for netizens to express their sentiments with regard to both incidents. As for the taxi driver (in the second video), many netizens shared their frustrations with the cyclist for not following the rules. We hope that all parties involved in both accidents are okay and will post any further updates if necessary.    --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Buying a Tesla is not worth the money. Or is it?

    Ever since its first showroom launch in Singapore, Tesla has received a lot of attention and hype from local drivers. Located at One Assembly in Raffles City, the sparkling mini-showroom proudly features two units of what Elon Musk calls an “affordable” electric car – the Model 3 sedan. Intending to bring clean energy solutions to individuals globally, the high-profile American brand has raised the standard through its vehicles and proved that one could achieve a powerful and fast car without fossil fuels. Tesla drivers not only save money overall but save the earth as well. With the government intending to switch to an all-electric vehicle Singapore by 2040, the American brand’s local release came at just the right time. However, the main question still stands – is buying a Tesla worth it?   Are Teslas too expensive? According to Tesla’s sales portal, the Standard Range Plus Model 3 will cost $113,245* while the Model 3 Performance will go for $155,283*. Images were taken from Tesla Both prices do not include the cost of additional features and interior/exterior options, as well as COE, which means you could pay an additional $50,000 - $60,000. With the additional features, expect to pay about $173,245* for the Standard Range Plus Model 3 and $215,283* for the Model 3 Performance. For those prices, you can undoubtedly purchase something similar or more luxurious like the Renault Zoe Electric ($159,999*) or the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Luxury ($190,888*) and the Audi A4 ($188,016*). Although, it is worth noting that the Model 3's performance figures (0 - 100 km/h in 5.6s) obliterate every other car in its price bracket, making it an especially good deal. Audi A4 40 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Luxury Audi A4 45 Tesla Model 3 Images were taken from The Car Guide The Model 3 enjoys the EV Early Adopter Incentive (EEAI), which includes a 45% rebate of the ARF, capped at $20,000, and an additional reimbursement of $45,000. This rebate is the highest for any car in Singapore and its attractive discounts make drivers eager to own a piece of Elon Musk’s technology.  * All prices were taken from Tesla and sgCarMart Will there be charging problems for HDB owners? After its soft launch in July, Tesla has set up three charging points on the ninth floor in Orchard Central carpark. While private estate owners can opt to install a home charger with the help of Tesla Certified Installers, consumers living in HDB estates cannot enjoy the same luxury. Given that most Singaporeans live in HDB apartments, does this mean that prospective owners are only limited to these three stations? Even though there is a limited number of Tesla V3 Superchargers in Singapore, the Model 3 is compatible with Type 2 AC and CCS2 DC fast-charging stations. This allows drivers living in HDB estates to charge their cars at various third-party charging stations by SP Group, Shell-Greenlots and BlueSG. Image was taken from Shell Greenlots If you’re afraid that there won’t be enough places to charge your vehicle, there is a wide variety of different charging stations powered by various companies across Singapore. With BlueSG having more than 1,000 points across the island, it is safe to say that finding a charging station for your shiny new Tesla will be the least of your worries. Is the cost of maintenance high? Contrary to widely held belief, the cost of maintaining a Model 3 is much more affordable than one thinks. Since Teslas are fully electric, many standard maintenance items do not apply. These include brake jobs, oil and filter changes, accessory belt replacements, engine air filter and fuel filter changes. Image was taken from AsiaOne The recommended routine maintenance includes tire rotation, brake fluid replacement, cabin air filter replacement, windscreen wipers replacement and air-conditioner servicing every two years. Overall, the cost of maintaining a Tesla is cheaper than fuel vehicles in the market. Is a Tesla still worth it? There are still a select few who believe that going electric brings more harm than good. While concerns regarding the cost of a Tesla are still circulating amongst the local driving community, the company has significant plans to expand its offerings and make its luxury sedans more affordable. Coupled with the extensive number of rebates from the government, drivers might find themselves owning a piece of extraordinary technology without paying excessively. At the end of the day, the benefit of owning a Tesla outweighs its cons. Sure, it is a lot of money to invest in a vehicle, but you can’t put a price tag on saving the environment.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Mazda 3 driver fails to stop at stop line and pretends to be Singapore’s most courteous driver

    TL;DR – Mazda 3 driver exits a carpark, does not stop at the stop line and almost collides with cam car. The driver then proceeds to wave his hands to “give way” to the cam car. Whut?   This incident happened on the 17th of August 2021, Tuesday @ 11.15pm A Mazda 3 driver exiting the Sengkang General Hospital carpark failed to stop at the stop line which almost led to a collision with the cam car that was travelling on the road perpendicular to the Mazda 3. While incidents like this are commonplace, what happens next is what makes this story interesting. Here’s the 51-second video   YaYa Papaya You’ll notice that the Mazda 3 driver makes some hand gesture of sorts initially. If it’s unclear, don’t worry, it gets better. He then winds down his window and you’d think that the Mazda 3 driver would apologise and carry on with life. But nope! He waves his hand to ‘allow’ the cam car to move! Eh hello?! You were in the wrong, and now you’re acting all high-and-mighty ff? Online Chatter A lot of unnecessary problems if you ask me.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
