The 2018 Volkswagen Passat does little wrong, but its stoicism means it isn’t much fun.

Pros
Massive interior
Conservative, quality feel
Good ride quality
Lots of standard safety tech

Cons
Totally devoid of personality
V-6 is very thirsty
Some cheap bits inside
Could a mid-size sedan be less interesting?
