Second-generation VW CC rendered, debuts in Geneva – Report

February 26, 2015

Official renderings published on European websites give the first glimpse at how the next-generation Volkswagen CC could look like. The Passat’s “comfort coupe” version was launched in 2008, received a facelift in 2012 but still stands in the que for the second-generation upgrade. The CC is pitched as an affordable alternative to the premium four-door coupes.

The all-new Volkswagen CC would be presented in a concept form at the Geneva Motor Show this year but the production model would still take a while to launch in the market. The new-generation CC is likely to see its market launch in 2017, and would be based on the Euro-spec eighth-generation Passat (B8) that was introduced in 2014.

The CC will be larger than the Passat B8 which is built upon the Volkswagen Group’s MQB architecture. The coupe will have a sloped roofline to boast a sleeker profile which of course means losing a bit of rear headroom.

Unlike the currently sold model which is a sedan, the next-generation model could be a liftback with a more practical rear liftgate like the Audi A7 and the Porsche Panamera. VW enthusiasts are also speculating shooting brake version of the CC but that seems unlikely for now.
