We head out to road with the VW Pas­sat

We drive out of the city to our favourite driv­ing road, lead­ing to the town­ship of Lavasa, for the Thrill of Driv­ing in the most ac­com­plished pre­mium sedan in the coun­try

ALAP OF MUTHA. IN A full-sized pre­mium sedan. That was the plan when I de­cided to bor­row the Volk­swa­gen Pas­sat and chase our biker boys up our favourite driv­ing road, the road lead­ing up to Lavasa an hour out­side of Pune. It didn’t quite seem like a great idea to a lot of peo­ple, in­clud­ing me. The in­ces­sant rain of the mon­soon that re­fuses to re­treat made it seem even worse - it looked gloomy, traf­fic was guar­an­teed, we cer­tainly would be drenched if and when we de­cided to get out for some fresh moun­tain air, and the biker boys de­cided they were made of sugar and would dis­solve if they headed out in the rain. No bud­dies then but, well, I trusted the Pas­sat and the weather usu­ally changes pretty quickly up in Lavasa. So, off I went in search of a few hours of some driv­ing fun be­hind the wheel of the most ac­com­plished pre­mium sedan this side of the other Ger­mans.
