The Passat CC, which mixes elegant coupé styling with practicality and refinement, is set to benefit from a series of revisions to add new technologies and greater flexibility to help it represent stronger value than ever before.

For the first time the Passat CC can accommodate five adults thanks to the addition of an extra space situated between the rear seats, while up front satellite navigation is fitted as standard along with a touchscreen Bluetooth device.

This comes on top of the already comprehensive list of standard equipment which includes 2Zone electronic climate control, a leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake, 17-inch ‘Phoenix’ alloy wheels and six airbags.

The GT model also benefits from the revisions plus it gains Nappa leather interior, front and rear parking sensors and cruise control.

The GT trim level also retains 18-inch ‘Interlagos’ alloy wheels, ACC (Adaptive Chassis Control) electronically controlled pneumatic dampers and heat insulating tinted glass from the B-pillar backwards.

These changes on the entry-level model represent an extra £1,000 worth of equipment yet the revised Passat CC will cost only £515 more than the model it replaces. On the GT model the gap is even greater with an extra £3,000 worth of equipment being fitted yet the overall price of the car rises by £1,000.

The existing line-up of powerful yet efficient 1.8-litre TSI, 2.0-litre TSI and 3.6-litre V6 petrol engines and 2.0-litre TDI diesel engines remain, as does the choice of six-speed manual or DSG gearboxes on selected models.

The new model opens for ordering this week with prices set to start at £22,645 RRP on the road for the 1.8-litre TSI model.
