New Passat CC To Give The New BMW 3-Series a run
To date, nearly 270,000 people around the globe have chosen the sedan with the stylish lines of a sports car. They are car drivers who love the charm of a coupé but also value space for at least 4 persons and 4 doors. Now, Volkswagen is presenting a technically and visually updated version of the popular business vehicle. The Passat CC gets a makeover just in time to tackle the new BMW 3-Series sales run.
Its extended range of standard features has become more exclusive as well; they now include new bi-xenon headlights, static cornering lights and a new LED tail light design. Also standard: fatigue detection, RCD 310 radio-CD system, stainless steel door sill plates and safety head restraints with additional longitudinal adjustment (front seats).
New assistance systems are making their way into the CC as well. They include optional technologies such as Side Assist Plus with integrated Lane Assist (warns of vehicles in blind spots and assists driver in avoiding an accident by steering intervention), Dynamic Light Assist (automatic main beam control) that is new in the Volkswagen CC and a camera-based traffic sign detection system. Meanwhile, comfort is optimised by the ‘climate seat’ with integrated massage function. Global release will be in February 2012.
