The Passat CC is now pretty and practical!
Responding to customer demand, VW has replaced the pair of individual rear seats with a conventional three-seat bench. This gives the option of transporting five adults in comfort, just like a Passat saloon, but still offering a more stylish coupe bodystyle.
The standard spec has also been increased. Alongside the climate control; leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake, and 17-inch alloys, all CCs now come with sat-nav and Bluetooth. GT models also benefit from a Nappa leather interior, front and rear parking sensors and cruise control, and retain 18-inch alloys, Adaptive Chassis Control and tinted glass.
The car is available to order now with the entry-level car starting at £22,520 - a £515 rise over the outgoing car. However, VW is keen to point out that the extra standard kit is worth £1,000. The GT model now starts at £25,160, a rise of £1,000, yet the extra equipment value is £3,000. The existing line-up of 1.8-litre TSI, 2.0-litre TSI and 3.6-litre V6 petrol engines and 2.0-litre TDI diesel engines remains, as does the choice of six-speed manual or DSG gearboxes.
