That’s how I would discribe the this car. It is a harmony of lines and surfaces rarely seen on other makes other than perhaps Audi or Alfa Romeo. I guess Walter de Silva’s touch is evident in these makes and one can see the connection.
When you first see it I’m sure you’ll be taken aback and left wondering where it came from. Were it not because of the badge, you might mistaken it for something Italian. The Passat CC is lucky because it’s DNA is taken straight from the existing Passat which is a beautifully proportioned car; taught lines with great balance of volumes. One might say the base Passat looks bland but because it got all the visual basics right, you can only appreciate how well the styling was done. Come the CC, multiple the sports factor by 10 and you can’t help but want to drive one.
The lines are crisp all over and the volumes right where they should be. Mind you, VW is one of the few auto companies worldwide that can control metal that way. Here, technology marries design perfectly.
Certainly up there in my admiration list 😉
