A few of us around the Autoblog offices have made the case that the recently unveiled Volkswagen Passat CC
should replace the current model and drop the "CC
" suffix altogether. Both are fine looking vehicles, but there doesn't seem to be any need for another variant carrying the Passat
name. Well, apparently VW
agrees with part of that argument and has updated its consumer web site with information about the new CC, while dropping the Passat moniker altogether. It's a subtle marketing ploy that may or may not work, but will help to fill the gaping hole between the standard Passat and the soon-to-be-revived Phaeton
Thanks for the tip Rob!
