The 2017 Volkswagen CC Coupe is heading to dealership stores and when it does it could probably be the stylish, curvy car you have been waiting for.
The 2017 edition of the Passat is already out but buyers who find it quite bland with a very conventional design should wait for the CC Coupe. The four door coupe was recently spotted on the road heavily camouflaged. Despite all the measures Volkswagen took, we still could make out its design and confirm that it now sports a curvaceous body to make it look sportier than ever.
While the 2017 Volkswagen CC Coupe is not going to be out until next year, prototype version of the car is already being tested in multiple tracks. The company may choose to make some specific changes before it goes into production. The original Passat is known for its straight laced design the Passat CC will cater to those who wish to own a stylish sports coupe. The camouflaged model shares a lot of similarities with the sport coupe concept GTE showcased by VW at the Geneva motor show held in 2015.
It sports a clamshell bonnet on the front coupled with a raked windscreen. The rounded car has tall shoulder line and a sloping rear window. The rear end of the test mule features some radical changes when compared to the saloon. While it is covered, it is known that Volkswagen is going for large LED tail lights to give it a sports car look.
All these changes can be confirmed only when the production version is showcased, probably next year. The interiors of the 2017 Volkswagen CC Coupe will share some similarities with the original Passat. Majority of the features and the design elements of the Passat will be carried forward. As of now, we didn’t have the chance to look into the interiors to confirm whether VW is going with a similar design.
The 2017 Volkswagen Passat CC Coupe follows the original Passat in terms of chassis and platform. All these similarities make it easier for the automobile manufacturer to integrate the components and get the model ready. They are going to offer four-cylinder petrol engines and optional diesel engine variants. A plug-in hybrid powertrain is also in the cards which might be launched at a later date after the initial launch. Actual performance capabilities of the CC coupe and the trimlines are yet to be announced by Volkswagen.
