Default VW Golf Coupe on way








Quote:
Exclusive images show how the stunning new Volkswagen Golf CC could look when it arrives in 2015

Volkswagen is working on an all-new four-door coupe version of the Golf, and it could wear the Golf CC badge.

The newcomer is designed to take on the forthcoming Mercedes CLA, and will be much sportier and style-focused than the sensible Golf-based Jetta saloon (which it will be sold alongside). While the CC will be available in UK showrooms, the big markets are anticipated to be the US and China, where cars like the Jetta are already huge sellers.

Our exclusive images reveal how the Golf’s lines translate to a longer package. The tweaked front end now incorporates a large air intake that spans the width of the bumper. Meanwhile, a sharp crease runs down the CC’s flanks to a set of narrow wraparound LED tail-lights.

Under the sporty body is the same MQB platform as used by the Golf. The CC will get a slightly lengthened version that will also underpin the Golf Estate and the saloon version of the Audi A3.

Unlike the Jetta, which gets a traditional saloon boot, the Golf CC will be fitted with a wide-opening hatchback tailgate to help improve access. The load area itself will be markedly bigger than the Golf – which has a 380-litre capacity – but slightly down on the current Jetta’s 527-litre boot space.

To fit with the CC’s sporty, premium image, only the most powerful engines will be offered. Expect to see the range start with the 120bhp 1.4-litre petrol turbo and include the 148bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel. The latter will offer 60mpg, while the 1.4 TSI should get close to that, too, with Active Cylinder Technology delivering economy of around 55mpg.

The standard Golf CC should arrive in 2015, and could be followed closely by a hot GTI version to rival Mercedes’ CLA 45 AMG and the Audi S3 saloon.

Prices will start from around £19,000 – quite a bit more than the cheapest £16,285 Golf. But buyers won’t only get a bigger car for the money, they’ll also benefit from a lot more standard kit, like adaptive cruise control and a blind spot monitoring system.

If the rear wasn't so stubby, I'd be all over it.

The new trend of swoopy sedans is sexy. I loved the CLS and I love the CC.

If they make it have a real sporty setup, I would love this.

Say the powertrain out of my golf R

VW did a bang up job of cheapening the 2011+ Jetta. It won't surprise me if VW does it with whatever comes out next, too.

And please let it be made in Germany and not Mexico.

I swear I can feel the difference between my GTI and Jetta in terms of quality construction.

The "coupe" and "shooting brake" names have been ruined and it makes me sick. I was trying to show my wife what a true shooting brake looked like through a quick google search, and the main thing that popped up was the Mercedes CLS WAGON. I'm sick of the use of the names to generate hype. Seriously, if you are going to make a shooting brake, take a coupe and square the back.

P.S. That's a decent looking sedan. Sadly a bit bland, but what styling has VW been known for most in the past years.

I say good riddance. The shooting brake was by far the stupidest name ever attached to a car. It was like using the words, Monkey Fornication, to describe jogging.

I can definitely tell a difference in quality/fit & finish between my old MKV GTI and my current MKVI Jetta GLI. Sometimes I wish I had just purchased a 4-door GTI.

It really surprises me how the differences vary. My buddy bought a full loaded gli, and for the most part, I was left with neutral feelings and never thought about buying a vw. Early last year I went with a buddy to test drive a mkvi gti and I absolutely loved it. I liked it so much I bought one .

I dont know what it is about my GTI, but I just enjoy driving it more than any wrx or sti ive owned (although it is a ton slower)

Hey, it worked quite well for Mercedes although this car looks better than any CLS IMWO.

Is this even going to be sold here by VWoA? I have serious doubts.

It's basically the "true" continuation of the Jetta/Bora line, as a Golf sedan, rather than the US-designed MK-6 Jetta (which has been a huge sales success here, despite the press' & enthusiasts' wails of protest).

I'm not sure why VW would try to fill a niche market they just got out of by making the US Jetta bigger, specifically for American tastes. I totally understand why this car has appeared for the rest of the world, but I wouldn't count on VW even bothering with it here.
