Title: Passat CC
Post by: jayryan on January 30, 2008, 07:17:59 AM
Hmm...not sure how I feel about it yet. I don't think i like where German car designs are heading.

It reminds me of a Camary with a VW badge on it.  ???

Did VW buy Toyota too?
HA!

Some of it like, some, not so much...

I think it shares a family resemblance with the new A6.  I dont think its bad, but it has lost some of the more muscular shoulder line that I liked in the older cars.

I usually don't like new models.....I think they have to grow on me.  I do think this one looks pretty good.  It kind of has a Mercedes look as well.

I kinda like it.  It'd probably be stupid expensive with the 3.6 though.
I think they should make a forced air version of the I-5 for cars like this, and the GTi for that matter.

I actually like the CC from an aesthetics standpoint, with the fastback styling.  I like it looks pretty sleek.

Would definitely test drive it to see if it can lure me away from my beloved W8.   :D

I like it but as it was stated above, reminds me of this....

I can't say I love it, but I do like it better than the current B6 model (sorry Jay).

I still like the B5 the best.  I like the B6 A4 the best too.  There is just something about the german designs that fluctuate out of my favor from time to time.  I will say that BMW got it spot on with the new 335 though.  That is the best looking BMW I have seen come out this century.

No need to apologize, I'm counting the days until this car gets the hell out of my possession. :)

I think it looks more like the Saturn Aura from the side, nice but far from not good enough.

Pricing will probably head north even more, as another model will be wedged between the Passat and the Jetta.  VW definitely hasn't learned from the W8 Passat and the Phaeton.

 ;D

Agreed on the fluctating...the ONLY new VW I still like is the Rabbit. I'm trying to be a fan of the B7 line, but, I'm not. The B5 line (Audi) did absolutely nothing for me. The B5 Passat was nice, but man, I fell hard in love with the B6 A4. So I'm gonna stay here thank you very much!

I have to agree.  Jen and I were walking into the Barnes and Noble a few weeks back in the snow and a car pulls into the lot and waits while we cross to the sidewalk.  It was a B6 S4 Avant - Nagaro Blue.  That is my dream car right there.
