The Volkswagen CC may not carry the same level of mainstream recognition as the Passat, but there’s a certain segment of the population that developed a certain level of affinity for the luxury sedan . Well, for those who fall under this category, good news has arrived in the form of a next-generation Volkswagen CC.
MotorTrend sat down and talked with VW of America president Michael Horn and among other topics that were discussed, the future of the next-generation CC was broached. According to Horn, the next-gen CC is already under development and there are talks within the company that the new CC could come in a radically new design that could have similarities with the Audi A7 .
Horn also teased that the new CC could come in more than just one version, which could include a fastback model that will draw comparisons to the A7 Sportback . If anything, using the A7 as a peg for the next-generation CC is as good an indication as any that Volkswagen has some big plans for its luxury sedan.
Other than the expected design overhaul of the CC, Volkswagen is apparently considering building the sedan closer to where a bulk of its models will land. Horn indicated as much, telling MotorTrend that rising production costs could compel the company to shift production in the US or in Mexico.
That’s as much as we know about the Volkswagen CC. At this point, we’re just excited to see that VW has serious intentions of smoothly bringing along the next-generation CC.
