“Was ist das? Der neue Passat?”
We got that question more than a few times when we drove Volkswagen’s new Passat CC in Germany and Austria, and it is a good one. The Passat CC appears to be merely a better-looking replacement for the existing Passat but is in fact an entirely new model designed to slot above the current, more conservatively styled sedan. Naming issues aside, the Passat CC has far more going for it than a pretty, cut-down body. Underneath is a raft of changes — new technologies and improved chassis dynamics — that provide a far superior driving experience to the Passat sedan, making this car a bit more special than we first expected.
