VW Passat CC offers three-seater rear bench

VW must have read about the grouses at the VAG website from potential Passat CC customers having a tough time making a decision between style and practicality.

Up to recent, the Passat CC is strictly a 4 seater. Volkswagen has now added an optional new rear bench for the Passat CC that turns the four-seater model into a five-seater. Available in Europe as an option for 100 or about US$140, the new rear bench gets a third head restraint and three-point seat belt at the center position while the folding backrest is asymmetrically split. I believe US $140 is a small price to pay accomodate an additional passenger, which is especially useful for the family man.

The following photos compare the rear bench for the 4 seater and 5 seater verions:

Some may argue that a five seater Passat CC reduces the uniqueness of the CC but at least VW has given the customer a choice. Expect Volkswagen Centre Singapore to offer this option in the near future.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
