Detroit show: VW builds a luxury Passat

Sleek: Passat CC is more like a coupe with a big sunroof.

The name suggests a steel-roofed cabrio, but Passat CC is nothing of the sort

THE nameplate misleadingly suggests that Volkswagen has created a large coupe-convertible version of its medium sedan, but the Passat CC is nothing of the sort.

Instead, the production car is a luxury four-seat version of the Passat with a “stance” of a coupe and a bigger-than-normal sunroof.

The German manufacturer claims the vehicle debuts a new exterior design theme for Passat, along with “new comfort, safety and dynamic” technologies.

The latter includes lane-changing and automatic parking assist technologies, as seen on rival European and Japanese cars.

The coupe-like profile sees overall height reduce 50mm, while the front/rear track increase 11mm/16mm.

Air suspension debuts under the Dynamic Drive Control (DDC) heading, while the interior has a new design and higher standard of appointments than ever seen before on Volkswagen wearing a Passat badge.

Power will come from three petrol and two diesel engines, ranging from a basic 1.8-litre petrol (driving the front wheels) to a 3.6-litre V6 AWD petrol. Australian deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter.
