Volkswagen Passat CC 2009 Berlina deportiva

  • Berlina deportiva de 4 plazas
  • Motor tope de gama 3.2 V6 de 300 cv
  • DSG y 4Motion de serie en el 3.2 V6

Después del éxito cosechado por Mercedes al reinventar el concepto de berlina deportiva de 4 plazas con el lanzamiento del CLS, Volkswagen ha sido la siguiente marca en incluir un modelo en este segmento. Audi y BMW ya se sabe que también están desarrollando una berlina que haga competencia al Mercedes CLS, pero aún faltan varios años para que se hagan realidad.

El nuevo Passat CC es una berlina deportiva, tanto por su aspecto, como por su condición de 4 plazas, como por sus cualidades dinámicas. Sin embargo, Volkswagen no ha querido arriesgarse con las ventas y no ha querido imitar la fórmula seguida por Mercedes en el CLS de incluir solo los motores más potentes. El Passat CC estará disponible en los primeros meses de 2009 con tres motorizaciones, un turbodiésel 2.0 TDI de 140 cv y dos gasolina de inyección directa, un 1.8 TSI de 160 cv y un 3.2 V6 de 300 cv.


Volkswagen Passat CC 2009 Motor berlina deportiva

Volkswagen anuncia un nivel de consumos muy reducido para las dos motorizaciones de 4 cilindros. El 2.0 TDI de 140 cv se conforma con 5,8 litros de gasóleo cada 100 km en ciclo mixto, mientras que el 1.8 TSI consume 7,6 litros de gasolina en el mismo recorrido. Buenas cifras ambas, pero sin ser espectaculares. Un BMW 520i, con 170 cv y unas dimensiones ligeramente superiores a las del Passat CC, consume 6,7 l/100km en ciclo mixto, y en el caso del 520d (con 37 cv más) la diferencia es de 0,7 l/100km a favor del BMW. En la versión V6 el consumo medio se sitúa en 10,1 litros/100km.

Todas las versiones tendrán tracción delantera y cambio manual de 6 velocidades de serie, excepto la versión V6 que incorporará la tracción integral permanente 4Motion y la caja de cambios semiautomática con doble embrague DSG de serie. La versión tope de gama también contará entre su equipamiento de serie con un sistema de control adaptativo del chasis (DCC) desarrollado en exclusiva para este modelo.

Volkswagen Passat CC 2009 Interior berlina deportiva

En el interior destacan los asientos deportivos con grandes apoyos laterales, tanto en las plazas delanteras como en las traseras, y la presencia únicamente de 4 plazas, dos detalles muy deportivos. Otro detalle es que las puertas no tienen marco, nuevamente me remito al Mercedes CLS.

Sin duda, una de las opciones más apetecibles será el techo panorámico eléctrico, con una superficie de 0,84 metros cuadrados cubre todo el espacio entre los pilares A y B. Un detalle de equipamiento a tener en cuenta es la inclusión de un puerto USB en la guantera, válido para reproductores MP3, memorias flash o iPods, gracias al cual se elimina la necesidad de grabar la música en CD’s.

Una apuesta muy interesante por parte de Volkswagen que sin duda será imitada por más marcas en un futuro cercano. A continuación tienes la galería de imágenes en alta resolución que ha facilitado el fabricante.

Passat CC unifies the sedan and coupé worlds

  • First Volkswagen with lane-keeping assistant and adaptive chassis control
  • Passat CC TDI (140 PS) already satisfies Euro-5 emissions standard; average fuel consumption is just 5.8 liters
  • Passat CC TSI (160 PS) with efficient turbo engine consumes just 7.6 liters fuel per 100 kilometers and is 222 km/h fast
  • Passat CC V6 4Motion (300 PS) has new all-wheel drive, DSG and adaptive chassis control as standard equipment

With more than 15 million cars built, the Passat and Passat Variant rank among the really big successes in automotive history. Now Volkswagen is extending the model range of this car line by adding a third dimension: the Passat CC. Its fully independent body design, an interior that has sporty individual bucket seats in the rear too, impressive powertrain systems and technological highlights worthy of the luxury class, meld together to create a unique vehicle in the Passat’s market segment. The Passat CC is an elegant sedan and a dynamic coupé simultaneously. The concept and design of this Volkswagen are defining fresh, new directions beyond the mainstream.

Direct-injection gasoline and diesel engines with 140 PS, 160 PS and 300 PS

At its launch in Europe, the 4.8 meter long Volkswagen will be offered with two direct-injection gasoline engines (TSI and V6) as well as a turbo-diesel (TDI). The gasoline engines output 118 kW / 160 PS and 220 kW / 300 PS; the turbo-diesel develops 103 kW / 140 PS and already satisfies the Euro-5 emissions standard that takes effect in Fall 2009. At this power level, the Passat CC TDI consumes just 5.8 liters diesel and is 213 km/h fast. Among the most economical gasoline engines of its class, with average fuel consumption of 7.6 liters per 100 kilometers is the 222 km/h fast Passat CC TSI. The Passat CC V6 4Motion is electronically limited to 250 km/h; its average fuel consumption is 10.1 liters. Standard equipment on the top V6 model: the new generation of 4Motion full-time all-wheel drive, as well as the new adaptive chassis control system and very efficient DSG dual-clutch transmission.

Premiere at Volkswagen: “Lane Assist” and “DCC adaptive chassis control”

Just as innovative as the powertrain technologies are the driver assistance systems of the Passat CC. Also being introduced for the first time on a Volkswagen are the “Lane Assist” lane-keeping system and new “DCC adaptive chassis control”. Other high-end technologies include the “Park Assist” parking assistant and “ACC automa­tic distance control” with “Front Assist” for braking distance reduction.

Panorama vent sunroof extends from A-pillars to B-pillars

Furthermore, the Passat CC is putting on a whole display of fascinating fireworks with other innovative and detailed solutions. Newly developed, for example, is an electrically actuated Panorama vent sunroof. The transparent roof is 750 millimeters long and 1,120 millimeters wide. This means that it covers the entire front section up to the B pillars. In this case, the cross-beam above the windshield is also in black. The electrically powered “Panorama vent sunroof” can be pivoted upward by 40 millimeters.

Frameless doors, climate seats, new climate control system and new instruments

They include small details that have tremendous impact. Such as the unique guide system for the side windows in the frameless coupé doors, which do not offer any surfaces for the wind to catch hold. Extremely effective is the climate control feature for the car’s seats (active climate seat). Until now this comfort feature was reserved for the Phaeton luxury sedan. In summer months the active climate seat provides for noticeably improved comfort on long drives. Also new is the entire climate control system (“Cli­matronic”) of the Passat CC, whose visualization is now integrated in the display of the radio and navigation systems. There is also a new layout and design of the instruments with chrome bezels. Similar to the Phaeton, instrument markings and numbers are not backlit in blue, rather they glow in a white light. Sports car like: When the ignition is started the instrument pointers all briefly peg to their maximum positions.

New USB interface for iPod and Co.

Also newly developed is the “Media-In” multimedia socket. This USB interface can be used to integrate iPods and many other current MP3 and DVD players in the particular audio system installed on the Passat CC. The USB port is located in the glove box. Control is via the Passat CC’s radio or radio-navigation system. Title information is also shown in the display.

Tires of the Passat CC “repair themselves”

Another prime example of perfect attention to the smallest details is the “mobility tire” from Continental being introduced for the first time on a Volkswagen; it is standard equipment in every Passat CC version. The German tire producer developed this technology, called ContiSeal, as a system that enables continued driving despite penetration by nails or screws: A protective layer on the interior surface of the tire tread area immediately seals holes caused by penetration of foreign objects. That way, no air can escape. The sealing process works for nearly any leaks caused by objects up to five millimeters in diameter. About 85 percent of typical flat tires can thereby be avoided.

Extensive standard equipment includes climate control and 17-inch alloy wheels

The Passat CC – which is intentionally offered in just one luxurious equipment variant – is positioned in the premium range of mid-class cars. Its extensive standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels (“Phoenix” type) 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.

Advance sales started in Western Europe; North America and Japan to follow in 2008

The core markets for the Passat CC are North America, Western Europe and Japan. This Volkswagen – built at the German plant in Emden – can already be ordered in most countries in Europe. Starting in the fourth quarter Volkswagen will also be introducing the Passat CC in the USA, Canada and Japan.

Overview of technological highlights on the Passat:

“Lane Assist”: This active lane keeping system on the Passat CC automatically counter-steers as soon as it detects that the Passat CC could leave its lane unintentionally; a genuine gain in convenience and safety. About 14 percent of all accidents involving injuries are caused by the vehicle leaving its driving lane. “Lane Assist” can make a contribution toward reducing this accident rate. By the way, if the driver sets the turn signal to intentionally change lanes, “Lane Assist” does not intervene.

“DCC adaptive chassis control”: The car’s new “adaptive chassis control” system by Volkswagen combines the sportiness of a coupé 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. “Adaptive chassis control” offers the three programs “Normal”, “Sport” and “Comfort”. Decisive here is the fact that the suspension system is constantly adapting to the roadway and driving situation and therefore continually improves comfort and dynamic properties.

“Park Assist”: Another high-end technology is the “Park Assist” parking assistance system. It automatically guides the Passat CC into a parking space at the push of a button. The driver no longer needs to steer in this case, but instead just accelerates and brakes.

“ACC automatic distance control”: When “ACC” is activated, the Passat CC automatically brakes and accelerates within a speed range (0 to 210 km/h) input by the car driver beforehand. Thanks to “Front Assist”, the system can also prevent some cases of frontal collisions. 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 warns the driver of hazardous 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”). However, it does not relieve drivers of their responsibility and lets them intervene in the process at all times.
