Volkswagen junks CC to usher in new Arteon four-door fastback

With the Volkswagen CC on its way out, the automotive world is saying hello to its replacement – the Volkswagen Arteon. Due to arrive as an all-new vehicle for the 2018 model year, the new VW Arteon is expected to be a better version of the current VW CC. While the actual unveiling of the new VW Arteon is pegged to occur in March 2017 at the next Geneva Motor Show, the German carmaker is already providing an early glimpse into the new model.

The 2018 VW Arteon is basically a renamed 2018 VW CC. Volkswagen’s decision to drop the name could be an effort to save the four-door fastback from falling sales. The German carmaker launched the VW CC on the market in 2007, receiving praise for its sleek exterior and ergonomic interior. However, sales of the VW CC in the recent years haven’t been encouraging. For instance, the automaker only sold fewer than 6,300 units of the VW CC in the United States in 2015. Disappointing indeed!

Whether the new Arteon could save VW’s four-door fastback’s from fallen grace remains to be seen. But meanwhile, we could feast on the teaser of the new VW Arteon provided by the German carmaker less than four months into the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. But if we couldn’t wait for March 2017 to come, we could take a review of the Volkswagen Sport Coupé GTE Concept that was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The VW Sport Coupe Concept GTE is basically a preview of the VW CC; and with the CC gone (by name), it previews the new Arteon.

Volkswagen preparing a CC Shooting Brake

Volkswagen is proceeding with plans to broaden its Passat line-up, which will include a style-led CC Shooting Brake, according to Autocar. It was revealed by senior VW executives that the new five-door model, which comes with an exclusive computer-generated image, was conceived to join a successor to the existing swoopy four-door saloon in a second-generation lineup based on VW’s versatile MQB platform.

There’s a tentative schedule for the next Passat to be launched in early 2015. The model is expected to increase in size, with the overall length believed to reach nearly 4900mm. VW wants this model to fill the void in the range between the Passat and the top-of-the-line Phaeton. These larger measurements offer the basis for improvements in interior packaging such as greater rear seat accommodation.

Just like the current CC, this new model will utilize a variety of transversely mounted four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. It’s also likely to feature a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid. Customers can opt for either the standard front-wheel drive or the optional 4Motion four-wheel drive, which features VW’s newest Haldex 5 system. Very few details are available for the CC Shooting Brake model. In fact, it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.
