In yet another move which highlights the growing importance of the Chinese market for European car makers, Volkswagen has announced that it will be bringing its Passat CC premium model to the Asian country in 2010, with the manufacturing and assembly set to be handled by the local FAW Group.

Although there aren’t any official data on what engines will be sold with the Magotan CC, as it will be know in China, it is suspected that the European 3.6-liter gasoline engine will be replaced with either a 1.8 TSI or a 2.0 TSI motors, also set to be manufactured by the FAW Group.

Either way, Volkswagen’s decision to bring the Passat CC is a rational one and will only add to the profit the German company is experiencing, as the Chinese car market doesn’t seem to be feeling any sort of recession these days.
