The Passat CC, or the Volkswagen CC will be available in the United States starting this fall, with pricing starting just under $27,000. However, what we didn’t knew was that Volkswagen is also considering bringing a diesel version to the States, especially with diesel models getting more and more popular. According to Brett Scott, product planner for Volkswagen’s trucks and mid-size cars, who talked to The Car Connection, thought a diesel CC is not currently in the product plan, VW is “certainly looking at it.”
When sales will start, the CC will be avaialble with two petrol engines, a 200 hp 2.0 liter TSI and a 280hp 3.6 liter FSI and if the car would get the diesel, it will probably be the 140 hp 2.0 liter turbodiesel already alvailable for the European CC and which will power the US 2009 VW Jetta TDI.

We don’t know why Volkswagen took this decision, probably to distinguish somehow this car from the Passat series. Anther version is that this ‘rebranding’ is meant to fill the gap in the VW model range, between the Passat and the upcoming Phaeton. Who knows! Come to think about it, we don’t even know what CC stands for, when we hear it all we can think about is Peugeot’s CC (Coupe-Cabriolet). However, one thing’s for sure, whatever they call it doesn’t make us like the car more.
