The Volkswagen Passat CC is a 4-door coupé version of the Volkswagen Passat. It debuted in January 2008 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. At various times during its development the vehicle was known as the Passat Coupé. In the U.S. market, the vehicle will be branded simply as the Volkswagen CC, dropping the Passat name from the title.http://www.thetorquereport.com/2008/04/vw_expects_the_us_to_be_the_bi.html , retrieved 08-27-2008]

The suffix CC stands for "Comfort Coupé"http://www.volkswagen.de/vwcms_publish/vwcms/master_public/virtualmaster/de3/modelle/passat_cc.html?csref=home-teaser-links-passat_cc , retrieved 04-14-2008] and the car's styling strongly recalls the 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLS.

The Passat CC falls between the Passat and the Phaeton in VW's range — while based on the Passat, and sharing its wheelbase, the CC is longer (+ auto mm|27|2), lower (− auto mm|50|2) and wider (+ auto mm|36|2) than the Passat.

The car rests on a auto mm|2711|1 wheelbase and is, for the time being, available with a 1.8-litre TFSI inline-four (convert|118|kW|PS hp|0|abbr=on) or a 2.0-litre inline-four TDI engine, both with front-wheel drive and 6-speed manual, or with a 3.6-litre VR6 engine (convert|220|kW|PS hp|0|abbr=on) with 4motion four-wheel drive and a 6-speed twin-clutch Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG).
