Just announced as American car magazine, Motor Trend's 2012 Car of The Year, there's no doubt that the latest Volkswagen Passat is one of the more stylish and spacious members of the D segment.

Volkswagen might be claiming that the latest model is all-new, but in fact it's a clever face-lift of the 2005 car. To see how it compares with both the Mondeo and Insignia, I spent a week with a Passat 2.0-litre TDi 140 SE Bluemotion, costing £22,035.
