2008 Bologna Motor Show: Vw Passat CC Individual

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

Early in 2008 when the Passat CC was introduced, it was the original four-door coupe from VW to reach production. VW's concept and design of this vehicle are innovative and outside the conventional. Volkswagen is currently introducing a new exclusive variant in a motor show debut the CC Individual. Following the Eos, Passat and Touareg, this already is the fourth version with the label "Individual" to reach production.

The outside traits consist of new wheel designs and color schemes. On the inside, premium materials and color tones are matched with the surface finish. The latest Passat CC Individual, a four-door coupe, leaves the manufacturing plant on currently developed 18-inch "Chicago black" type alloy wheels as typical gear.

Following its market introduction, another 19-inch version will also be optionally offered. The Passat CC Individual will be available in the pearl effect car color "Moonlight Blue" as an exclusive feature in this car category. An additional distinguishing surface feature is the unassuming Individual insignias located on the front fenders.

In the interior, the latest Passat CC Individual highlights typical dual-tone upholstery for the 6-way power comfort seats that comes with memory function. The surfaces of the seat are made in high-grade soft "cool leather" with a "Nougat" color theme and equipped with climate seat holes; this material effectively reflects the rays of the sun and so it remains pleasingly cool.

Black nappa leather is utilized for the outer surfaces of the seat providing visual improvements, merging in Nougat color seams. The center armrest at the front and the main areas of the door inserts come in leather look with the "Nougat" theme. The color theme is continued on the leather steering wheel and gearshift handle. Here the elements in black leather are provided with Nougat colored seams. The fabric floor mats in black are enhanced with piping in Nougat color as well. Highlights in the CC instruments and doors are done in high-shine ebony paint finish.

Typical also on the Passat CC Individual is its surround lighting located at the door and the footwell areas together with an expanded chrome pack. This pack consists of special chrome bezels on the inside door handles, chrome caps on window lift and central locking switches, in addition to chrome around the mirror adapter.

The door tread plates also utilize the "Volkswagen Individual" mark, both in front and at the rear; the front marks are stylishly highlighted in white light. Beginning early next year the Passat CC Individual will be available for sale. The Passat CC Individual will be showcased by Volkswagen which highlights some made-to-order styling improvements. The four-door coupe is introduced in pearl effect 'Moonlight Blue', with freshly developed 18-inch alloy wheels called 'Chicago Black' and 'Individual' marking.

Inside the Passat CC Individual are found six-way comfort power seats totally covered with dual-tone soft and nappa leather, balanced off by ebony black trim and an expanded chrome pack which incorporates chrome bezels on the door handles and electric window switches and mirrors. Refined 'Individual' marking is maintained with highlighted tread plates in the front and rear entrances. After the Eos, Passat and Touareg, the Passat CC is the fourth 'Individual' copy introduced by the German company Volkswagen.
