Volkswagen, the German car manufacturer has recently come up with Passat as a response to the rep-mobile and family transporters. A well-equipped, roomy and refined workhorse, the Passat is a worthy adversary.

The Passat shares the same platform as Audis A6. The Passat has a choice of seven engines 1.8 Turbo, 2.0, 2.3 V5, 2.8 V6, 4.0 W8 along with a 1.9 Turbo and 2.5 Turbo diesels.

Peugeot recently unveiled a new urban car — Peugeot 1007. The Peugeot 1007 sits at the lower end of the Peugeot range, above the upcoming 107 but below the 206, and is intended as a useful urban runabout with a little more space than a city car. It’s got seats, which fold and slide, lots of headroom and some very cheap-to-run but underpowered engines. Peugeot also claims better visibility out of the side windows, while the doors can be operated remotely on the key fob. It works efficiently and simply. The doors can also be triggered by switches inside the car or by grabbing the handles. A major plus point is that the 1007 is a cracking-looking little car. It is cute and boxy while the extended glass gives it real style. In a bold primary colour it has a vivacity about it, which will really attract its target market – women living in cities above the age of 25. The 1007 will come with a choice of three engines: 75bhp 1.4-litre and 110bhp 1.6-litre petrol, and 70bhp 1.4-litre diesel, and the two petrol engines come with a choice of manual or 2-Tronic automatic gearbox.
