Volkswagen Passat Variant (B3).jpg

Volkswagen Passat (B3/Typ 35i). 1988–93 (prod. n/a). 4-door saloon, 5-door estate. F/F, F/A, 1595, 1781, 1984 cm³ petrol, 1588, 1896 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1984 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 2792 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Grille-less appearance for third-generation Passat, known for reliability and handling but less so on noise and ride. Competent, though in US, failed to challenge its Japanese rivals well; in Germany, more complete than Audi 80 and considered superior to Opel Vectra A and dated Ford Sierra Mk II.
