Medium wagon comparison: Hyundai i40 v Mazda 6 v Volkswagen Passat

At the risk of flogging the proverbial horse, we often wonder why more people don’t buy mid-sized wagons over medium SUVs. We understand the appeal of the latter body type’s high riding position, with its greater visibility, ease of access and feeling of safety. But with some equanimity we'd counter that passenger car alternatives often offer more, for less...

2015 Volkswagen Passat 132TSI review

After owning a 2009 TDI Golf and then the slightly larger 2013 TDI 2.0 Jetta I decided to upgrade yet again in April 2016 and purchased an ex-demo 132TSI Passat (2015 build) with a little over 400km on the clock. With just over 14,000km now travelled locally plus, three interstate trips, we're both absolutely thrilled with the comfort, quietness, feel and the economy...
