By Tom SeymourVolkswagen has dropped the Passat name from its next generation CC to move the model further away from the standard corporate saloon segment and drum up more exclusivity for customers.Designers have given the CC an ever stronger coupé profile than the previous model and the front and rear bumpers have been re-profiled.It's difficult to shift ties with the Passat completely though, as the design evolution is still clearly influenced by the standard saloon and it's still a practical four-door vehicle. The interior is classic VW with high build quality, leather and well thought out dash controls.Standard specification is high with RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation system, DAB digital radio, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, two-zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and battery regeneration (plus stop-start and multifunction computer with gear change recommendation for optimum fuel consumption on BlueMotion Technology diesel models). The top trim GT tested here adds further high quality items like heated front seats, full Nappa leather upholstery, three-mode adaptive chassis control, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, 18-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights and heat insulating tinted glass from the B-pillar back. Being inside the GT's cabin is a luxurious experi-ence befitting of the price which almost hits £30,000 when loaded with options. Extras on this model include keyless entry including start/stop button on centre console, hands-free boot opening (£525) and metallic paint at £495.It's still much cheaper than a Mercedes-Benz CLS at £46,860 for the entry level model, which admittedly is a different market. Customers won't get the Mercedes badge prestige, but the quality on the GT trim is very high.There's still the same great choice of engines available in the CC and the lower powered 140bhp diesel will be a popular option, offering a refined drive with ample acceleration. It's not a sporty engine and the CC doesn't like being thrown about on twisty roads, but progress on commutes is swift enough and excellent noise suppression make it quite a relaxing experience behind the wheel.VW's Bluemotion technology ensures drivers can return close to 50mpg and the six-speed DSG is still a benchmark for how automatic transmissions should be.SpecificationPrice £28,565Engine 2.0-litre diesel 140bhpPerformance 0-62mph 9.8 sec; top speed 132mphTransmission 6-sp DSG autoEfficiency 53.3mpg; 139g/km CO2RV (3yr/30k) 44.5%Rivals Mercedes-Benz CLSNew car marketNewsCV ShownewsUsed car analysisNews RecruitmentdigestDealer profileShowroomDriven Volkswagen CC GT BlueMotion - on sale nowDrumming up exclusivity
