Long-term update: 2012 Volkswagen Passat CC practicality
The fact that the Volkswagen CC is just a chopped-top version of the regular Passat would mean that space would be compromised. But that’s hardly the case.
We made our six-footer friend sit in the back, and there was still enough headroom to clear his scalp. Legroom is the same as the regular Passat, so that was a non-issue.
Also, we recently dropped someone off at the airport for an Emirates flight, and the boot comfortably fit her 35 kilos of luggage. Her excess baggage all fit back there, even with the space-hogging goose-neck lid hinges, so we didn’t have to use our Jeep Grand Cherokee.
It’s no wonder that the CC most-likely outsold the Passat here, based on how many we see on the roads. That stylish shape hardly comes with any practical penalty.
