2013 Volkswagen CC Drops the Passat Name and the 3.6L V6
The biggest news right now is that the four-door coupe will not be called a Passat any more, which should help it get a more premium image in the market that would not have been there if the name had stuck.
But what does the 2012 Volkswagen CC bring other than a shorter name? Well, when we first brought you the car, we discussed the North American version of it, and the US range tops out with the 3.6-liter V6. But the European-spec car that will arrive in Spring has renounced the slow-selling V6 that isn’t really suited to market conditions here, according to Autocar.
