The Volkswagen Passat has been named as Britain's best used car in the annual What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards. The Passat also won the What Car? Best Used Family Car Award, before beating nine other category winners to scoop the top prize. 'A Passat 1.8 S on a '98 S-plate with 22,000 miles should set you back around £10,000,' said What Car? Editor Steve Fowler. 'That's exceptional value given that its build quality is streets ahead of rivals. It's spacious, refined and boasts low running costs, too. Best of all, it's already lost the biggest chunk of its value before you buy.'
