If there are still those of you wondering whether Volkswagen decided to produce a second-generation CC
and a new Passat Alltrack
, learn there’s been recently an official release. The Volkswagen team gave a statement according to which a new CC and a Passat Alltrack will come to see the light of day. Both vehicles are inspired from the all-new Passat for Europe. An Autogramm reporter interviewed the Volkswagen brand chief designer, Klaus Bischoff, who said that some projects like the sedan and the station wagon are finished.
The time has come for other projects like the CC, the plug-in hybrid and the Alltrack. It seems the customers in the United States will be able to get the CC and only the CC, because the Passat Alltrack will not be made available. The good news is that the CC will be more intriguing than the present version of Passat. The current Volkswagen CC will be made available for the clients for another two years, since the vehicle received a facelift only last year.
The new model will have some great points of interest, including the exterior design. It will get a sportier look and we also found out it will share the lightweight MQB architecture with the European version of Volkswagen Passat.
The Passat model available in the United States is supposedly receiving a facelift next year, but the fans won’t be so enthusiastic to learn that it will be based on the same heavier and less advanced PQ46 architecture.
If those of you who live in the United States are disappointed to the news that the new Passat Alltrack
won’t be available for you guys, learn the carmaker has decided to put on the market a three-row SUV, previewed by the 2013 CrossBlue concept. In the photos below you can check the new sketches of the eight generation Volkswagen Passat.
