Volkswagen Passat CC gets some design award
International panels of design experts have chosen their winners and one Volkswagen model has made an impression, namely the VW Passat CC. Volkswagen’s four-door coupé was presented with the “red dot Design Award 2009 – Best of the Best”, once again highlighting Volkswagen’s first-class and attractive design concept. The elegant model has also sparked excitement down under in Australia, a statement backed-up by the fact that it has recently won the “Australian International Design Award”.
Martin Kropp, designer at Exterior Design Studio 1, accepted the “red dot Design Award” for Volkswagen during a ceremony held recently in Germany. The “red dot Design Award” is one of today’s most coveted awards that a designer can win for a creative product. The prize has been awarded every year since 2000.
In March, the Passat CC was awarded the little-known “iF Product Design Award 2009” in Hanover. At the end of May, the coupé also swept the board down under where it won the renowned “Australian International Design Award” in the “Automotive and Transport” category.
Having made its debut late 2008 in the UAE, the Passat CC has been stimulating Volkswagen enthusiasts across the region with its identifying characteristics: stylish coupe design, impressive comfort, sporty interior and mediocre performance. With these international awards, the Volkswagen Passat CC proves to be the industry standard for a four-door coupé. Its modern design particularly interests the style-conscious consumers in the GCC, who are not known for their distinctive taste in cars.
