    CarExpert's Take

    James Wong
    Production Editor
    James Wong drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Impressive across all metrics
    • Hugely practical cabin
    • One of the last of the breed
    Misses
    • Fiddly capacitive controls won't be for everyone
    • Needs options to feel complete
    • $60,000 isn't really 'affordable' anymore

    Senior Road Tester
    Anthony Crawford drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • It's the ultimate affordable sleeper with muscular straight-line performance
    • Adaptive suspension makes this a delight on long hauls and quick through the corners
    • Huge boot and loaded to the hilt with kit
    Misses
    • A more satisfying engine note would be nice
    • Enjoying your Passat 206TSI R-Line comes at a cost at the bowser
    • Get used to three-point turns
