If you were to ask me what I think about a four-door coupe the answer would be negative. I can’t imagine a car with 4 doors to be sporty and attract women. I changed my mind, today, when I saw that Volkswagen announced they Passat CC in Detroit and was left drooling. You get both performances, design and comfort if you choose it.
For the new Passat CC you get to choose from a 1.8-liter TSI engine that sports 160-hp to the top of the line 3.6-liter V6 FSI engine with 300hp, and shortly after European and North American Launch the 2.0-liter turbocharged FSI engine will also be available. All models will use the DSG gearbox and as an option you get to choose all-wheels-drive.
Volkswagen Passat CC is 5cm lower than the standard and 3cm longer, has a panoramic glass roof and should sell like bread depending on price. It’s going to be a tough competitor for Mercedes CLS Class. Here’s a video of the new VW Passat CC.
