The next generation Volkswagen CC has been digitally imaged based on the C Coupe GTE concept.

 

Yesterday we saw the C Coupe GTE concept transformed into a more practical Variant model and now the same concept has served as foundation for a render depicting the next-gen CC likely coming out in the second half of 2016. Volkswagen has already confirmed a new Comfort Coupe is being planned and will obviously be based on the latest generation Passat (B8).

 

If we were to believe recent gossip, the 2017 CC will be stretched by 4 inches (101mm) compared to the standard Passat while the sedan trunk opening of the current model could be replaced by a liftgate. Aside from the four-door coupe, the CC could also spawn a fastback version as announced a year ago by Volkswagen of America CEO Michael Horn.

Chances are the US-spec CC will be assembled in United States or in Mexico because of high import costs and unfavorable exchange rates.
