New VW Passat CC is "compact and lightweight"

Fri, 30 Jan 2009
The compact style and light weight of the brand-new Volkswagen (VW) Passat CC are two of the features highlighted by the manufacturer at its launch today.

Now available to order, the four-door coupe can takes 8.5 seconds to travel from zero to 62 mph using a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission gearbox.

It has a fuel consumption rate of 38.7 mpg on its combined cycle, so it might be worth considering for those who want to become a bit more eco-conscious.

The Passat CC is available in the standard trim, with features including ESP, six airbags and 17-inch alloy wheels, while extras on offer encompass adaptive chassis control and Park Assist to help with parallel spaces.

According to VW, all of the Passat CC's equipment enhances its economy and performance, so those planning on buying or selling a car this season could have some good choices available.

Meanwhile, the manufacturer recently sold a California campervan to TV personality Sir Jimmy Savile, who said it was his "dream vehicle".
