Think the German auto industry is packed enough with segment-busting five-door whatchamacallits? Apparently the Germans don't, because they keep on rolling 'em out. With BMW showing its 5 Series GT and Audi unveiling the new A5 Sportback, Volkswagen may be joining the fray as well with a baby brother to the slick Passat CC based on the Golf.
Although some reports suggest that Wolfsburg could be preparing to unveil the new Golf CC at the Frankfurt Motor Show, we'd be surprised if it were ready so soon. The five-door coupe/sedan/hatchback is expected to be based on the next-generation Golf VII, which isn't due until 2012 at the earliest.

      Super cool, it's gonna be a sell-out in europe.

      Hopefully it won't suffer the fate of Scirocco stateside.

      I'm more interested in the R20 AWD version.

        VW, do the Golf CC but...ditch the Eos!

        ..or the Jetta CC for the sedan happy USDM.

        VWAG, just make sure not to copy Honda/Acura's formula for a (hideous) 4-5dr tall wagon/coupe/crossover thingamajig.

      The sketches a slight resemblance to the Jetta spyshots from a couple days ago. Minus the Hoffmeister kink.

      not as good as the CC but then the current front end looks better with the design aethetic than the new one doing away wit hthe gaping maw

      If you thought rear seat headroom was tight in the CC....
      If this shares a body shell with the A3 sedan that some think is heading stateside, there may be a case for profitability here.
      Can't wait til Frankfurt..

      They already have a Golf CC.

      It's called a Scirocco.

      I kinda like it, despite the somewhat odd proportions. Waiting on Frankfurt..
