The Volkswagen Jetta defines bland practicality, but buyers looking something a little more stylish can soon expect a Golf CC.
Drawing inspiration from the Passat CC, the Golf CC will be a four-door coupe that is positioned as an affordable alternative to the Mercedes CLA. The car's styling will be influenced by the Golf, but it will reportedly have a unique front fascia and upward sweeping character lines.
Engine options will carryover so expect choices to include a turbocharged 1.4-liter petrol with 120 HP (88 kW) and a 2.0-liter TDI with 150 HP (110 kW). The company could also offer a GTI variant with a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine that develops 220 HP (164 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.
The Golf CC is expected to be launched in 2015 with a base price of approximately £19,000.
