| The 4-door coupe was first invented by Mercedes with the CLS. Today, quite a few other manufacturers are now following suit. Now it's Volkswagen's turn with the Passat CC. Its design is efficient to say the least, and is radically different from the Passat saloon. More streamlined (its cx is 0.29), it is also longer (31 mm) than the saloon, wider (36 mm) and lower (50 mm). |
Where engines are concerned, the 2.0 TDI producing 140 and 170 bhp have been announced. This Passat also has technological aspirations. Lane Assist puts it back on course if drivers stray out of their lane, while Park Assist takes charge during parking and an anti-collision radar can be allied to the cruise control.
