Volkswagen Passat CC is one of the most gorgeous four-door saloons money can buy today and if it wasn’t for the VW badge, I’d rather have this over Mercedes CLS! Now the company is making this car even sweeter by offering a new option which wasn’t available before, not in this nor in any other four-door coupe. And that’s the optional rear bench which makes it a five-seater!
Volkswagen is adding this new product feature in response to requests by many customers to give the Passat CC even greater everyday utility by adding a seating position. The new rear bench fulfils all necessary safety aspects with its third head restraint and three-point seat belt at the centre position. In addition, the folding backrest is asymmetrically split, so that even larger objects can be transported effortlessly. The 3-seat rear bench system is available as an option for 100 euros.
The Passat CC is a very fine car. Just a quick tip, if you want to buy one, don’t choose the diesel engine as it’ll ruin the whole package due to its dullness. Go for the most powerful variant with a 3.6 liter 280 hp V6 and enjoy it!
