    VW reveals Passat CC

    WOLFSBURG, Germany/DETROIT, Mich. - Just a few days into the New Year Volkswagen is setting off its latest firework with today?s world-exclusive launch of the new four-door Passat CC at the North American International Auto Show. A car that is anything but mainstream.

    The new Volkswagen embraces differences. It is a coupé, yet has four doors; it offers supreme comfort whilst at the same time oozing pure dynamism. Its sporty interior is uncompromising yet spacious.

    The completely redesigned bodywork captivates with its silhouette of fluid lines. The roof stretches powerfully in a flat radius from the windscreen to the rear. A characteristic element of the design is the sharp tornado line drawn below the lower edge of the windows. Another new development is the panoramic glass roof which offers an overhead view.

    The Passat, a proven success for more than three decades, forms the technical basis for the first four-door coupé by Volkswagen. The Passat CC comes exclusively with state-of-the-art direct injection engines (118 kW / 160 PS to 220 kW / 300 PS). A globally unique feature is the new lane hold assist system. If the vehicle appears to be inadvertently leaving the lane, the assistance system provides corrective steer control. The sportiness of a coupé is married to the comfort of a top-of-the-range saloon through the common denominator of automatic running gear adjustment, Dynamic Drive Control (DDC).

    The core markets are North America, Western Europe and Japan. The Passat CC, built in the German Volkswagen plant in Emden, will initially be launched in the second quarter of the year in Europe and then from the fourth quarter in the USA and Canada and later Japan.

    I'm guessing that what's different is that it's a coupe?

    Passats have always been four door sedans. I'm thinking they should have picked a new name for this car.

    Calling something a coupe doesn't make it one. If it has four doors, it's a sedan, regardless of the marketing hype.
