Volkswagen is reportedly considering a little brother to its CC four-door coupe. Auto Bild reports the automaker is might make a four-door coupe version of the 2013 Volkswagen Golf called the Golf CC, on its new MQB global architecture.
A Volkswagen Golf CC would act as a “little brother” to the more expensive CC, formerly known as the Passat CC. VW wants a Golf CC to provide an inexpensive alternative to the new Audi A3, the new BMW 1 Series, and the long-rumored Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class. Unlike the rear-drive Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, the CLC-Class would be based on the front-drove A-Class. If this were the SAT, think of it this way: Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is to Volkswagen CC as Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class is to Volkswagen Golf CC.
So what exactly would a Golf CC look like? Auto Bild reports that in order for a Golf CC to be successful in the United States and China that it’ll either need to be a sedan, or have a hatch concealed in the vehicle’s lines like the Audi A7.
If Auto Bild’s report proves true, we can expect to see a concept of the Golf CC sometime next year and a debut for the 2014 model year at the earliest.
