The New Volkswagon Passat CC 2009 Overview pictures

Volkswagon Passat. The Volkswagen Passat CC 2009 is a mid-size sedan similar in size to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Its fully independent body design, an interior that has sporty individual seats in the rear too, impressive power-train systems and technological highlights worthy of the luxury class, combine to create a unique vehicle in the Passat’s market segment. The Passat CC is an elegant sedan and a dynamic coupe simultaneously. The concept and design of this Volkswagen are defining fresh, new directions beyond the mainstream.

The new Volkswagon passat CC is designed longer, wider and lower than the standard Passat sedan slightly while wheelbase remains the same, spreading its footprint for a broader, more aggressive stance. The VW Passat CC’s roof-line is even more dramatic, flowing in a constant, fairly flat radius from the base of the windshield to its short rear deck. The Passat CC has a middle roof pillar (a B-pillar, in industry parlance), but it’s blacked out and nearly invisible from a distance between the darkened windows. The side windows have no frames, which is more typical of a coupe or convertible than a four-door sedan.

Although Volkswagon Passat CC can be powered by one of five drivers in Europe, including two diesels (VW Passat tdi), the U.S. market will have only two versions of the gas to start: a 3.6 liter narrow-angle V-6 and 2.0 liters of turbocharged VW in-line – four that spidered the car across the line. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual (available with 2.0-liter turbo only) or a six-speed automatic with Tiptronic. For cost reasons, we will not get the VW slick six-speed dual clutch transmission. VW 4Motion all-wheel drive system is available at the top of the specifications, VR6 3.6 liters model.

Volkswagon Passat CC 2009 benefits from precise steering, with the effort that automatically adjusts to situation.Its the optional six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and responsive and its brakes are excellent. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower that should satisfy most needs, while returning 23/32 mpg according to EPA City / Highway estimates when equipped with the standard transmission.The optional six-speed manual 3.6 liters of narrow-angle V6 growls when pressed and delivers robust torque, allowing the Passat to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds.

The Volkswagon Passat CC boasts mid-size sedan practicality.It offers plenty of interior room, particularly for back-seat riders, so a six-foot passenger can sit behind a six-foot driver. And while the previous model was among the safest cars in America, the structure of the latest Passat is substantially improved. The interior will look familiar to anyone who’s sat in the current Volkswagon Passat cars, but the Passat CC 2009 will also offer several new features inside. The optional Panorama sunroof is huge, measuring 30 inches long and 44 inches wide and basically filling the entire roof between the top of the windshield and the B-pillar.

There are some the extensive standard features on the Volkswagon Passat CC include 17-inch alloy wheels with size 235 tires, chrome accents (interior and exterior), four ergonomic sport seats (individual seating system in rear), a new three-spoke leather steering wheel design, climate control, ESP electronic stabilization program and automatic headlamp switching.

Outline of technical highlights on the new Volkswagon Passat cars

1. Lane Assist. This active lane keeping system on the Passat CC automatically counter-steers immediately it identifies that the VW Passat CC could run off its  lane accidentally; a genuine gain in convenience and safety. Approximately 14 percent of all crashes involving injuries are caused by the  vehicle leaving its driving lane. The Lane Assist can build a contribution to reducing this accident rate. By the way, if the driver  sets the turn signal to intentionally change lanes, Lane Assist does not intrude.

2. DCC adaptive chassis control
The car’s new adaptive chassis control system by Volkswagen merge the sportiness of a coupe with the comfort of a top luxury sedan in  one car. In parallel to tuning of the suspension’s damping characteristic, the power steering system is controlled too. The Adaptive  chassis control presents the three programs Normal, Sport and Comfort. Decisive here is the fact that the suspension system is continually adapting to the roadway and driving situation and for that reason constantly gets better comfort and dynamic properties.

3. Park Assist
A further high-end technology on these Volkswagon cars is the Park Assist parking support system. It automatically guide s the VW Passat  CC into a parking area at the push of a button. The driver no longer needs to steer in this case, but instead just accelerates and  brakes.

4. ACC automatic distance control
When ACC is activated, the Volkswagen Passat CC automatically brakes and accelerates within a speed range 0 – 210 km/h input by the car  driver previously. Thanks to the Front Assist, the system can also avoid a number of cases of frontal accidents. In advance of certain  situations, the system preventively puts the brakes in a preconditioned state, thereby functioning as a stopping distance reduction system (AWV). Front Assist also notifies the driver of unsafe situations by visual and acoustic signals. Even more: If a minimum driving distance  is not maintained, in extreme cases the system brakes the Passat CC to a stop (follow-to-stop). Nevertheless, it does not replace drivers of  their responsibility and permits s them intrude in the process at all times.

The prices of VW Passat variant are: 2.0T ($23,990), automatic ($25,065); 2.0T Wagon ($25,200), automatic ($26,275); Komfort sedan ($27,900); Komfort Wagon ($29,100); Lux sedan ($30,100); Lux Wagon ($31,300); VR6 sedan ($36,050), 4Motion ($38,000); VR6 Wagon 4Motion ($39,200).
