The Volkswagen Passat CC Is a Tempting Used Car

The Volkswagen Passat CC Is a Tempting Used Car

In the news this week, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that new petrol and diesel cars will no longer be allowed to be sold in 2030, and Daniel tells us about his experience with run-flat tyres. After that, we highlight the newly-launched Mercedes-AMG GLC43 Coupe and Lexus LC500 Convertible, before Ariff tells us about BMW's #NextGen vehicles - an electric scooter, a modern reinterpratation of the MINI mantra, and their impressive (and controversial) flagship electric car, the BMW iX.

 

It's back to Used Cars this week as Daniel Fernandez brings us a buying guide for a Volkswagen that deserved much better: the Volkswagen Passat CC. Launched in 2008, the Passat CC was a sleek, well built and handsome car, but its early sales successes were overshadowed by a certain Volkswagen Group gearbox endemic. With prices hovering around RM50,000, Daniel tells us why it's a tempting choice these days, and how you can get around its damaged reputation.
