It looks fantastic, and I can’t remember when I last said that about a car with a VW badge on its grille. Its lines and proportions are not just well judged and fluently executed; there’s real eye-catching beauty here. Better still, Volkswagen has followed the lead of the Mercedes CLS and created an elegant car that retains its rear doors – and therefore a large chunk of the practicality of the saloon on which it is based. There’s even a vast boot.
Indeed you could argue that Volkswagen has done a better job than Mercedes: to my eyes not only is the Passat CC even better-looking than the CLS, but if you open up those rear doors and have a peek inside, you’ll discover it’s more spacious too.
