The Review

The Volkswagen Passat CC is a radical change from the usual plain styling German automakers. CC according to the Germans stand for comfort coupe. In case if youíre wondering, the car is derived from the Passat CC just like the CLS is from the E-class. It is a coupe with 4 door which is convenient yet stay true to its root by allowing strictly 4 seats. In the case of the Passat CC, VW took the basic Passat architecture -- same wheelbase, same powertrain, and same basic interior -- and stretched out the overhangs by 0.6 inch and lowered the roof line by 2 inches. The front-end styling was made sleeker, a dramatic side character line was added and the rear end was tapered down from the radically sloped roof line. VW manage to produce a stunning car that can be actually described as sexy. Interior wise it carries over the same quality as of a Passatís cabin. However the CC was obviously made over to look more up market with 2 tone leather seats available at every trim level, new touchscreen navigation system and attractive cross-stitched upholstery. The Passat CC is a decent car to drive albeit disappointment because it is still supposed to be a coupe. That saying I am just pointing out that this is a coupe which rides like a limo. The ride quality is superb and I highly recommend the suspension to be set at Comfort because neither Normal nor Sports will do the car justice. Cabin insulation is near perfection too as wind noise and road noises are kept nicely in check. The CCís impressive 200bhp will see you off the line in mid 7s range and the engine accelerates with only slight hesitation and almost no hint of turbo lag. However do not expect explosive burst of speed at high RPMs. The handling ability of the CC is great as it offers good grip and minimal body roll but the electro mechanical steering does feel a little numb at times. Another impressive feature about the Passat CC is the amount of legroom and headroom for both drivers and passengers despite the low roofline and the fact that it is still a coupe. Rear legroom is class leading and even more spacious than that of a CLS which cost twice the price. The rear split fold also allows for even more boot space for the already cavernous boot of the CC. The real downside to the CC is the 6 speed automatic gearbox found in the 2.0 TSI model. The attractive 7speed DSG is only available in the 1.8 model which comes with about 40 less bhp but that should be able to see you reach 3 digit figures in mid 8s range, still respectable in my opinion. But other than that it is really an impressive car to be added to the revolutionary line of the Volkswagen of recent times and I simply don't understand the lack of numbers on the roads as yet.

I think that the lack of popularity here is due to the lack of VW's badge power, unpopularity and the four-seater layout might put off a few. asdzds
