2015 Volkswagen Golf CC set to battle the Mercedes CLA - report

 2015 Volkswagen Golf CC set to battle the Mercedes CLA - report
VW New Compact Coupe Concept 11.01.2010

Promises to be a stylish and sporty alternative to the Jetta

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.

Since the model will be based on the Golf, we can expect to ride on an enlarged version of the MQB platform. This will enable the model to have a roomy interior as well as an accommodating boot.

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.

Question: Why is VW trying to compete with Mercedes when Audi (which is owned by VW) is also competing with Mercedes?! Brand dilution!

Because Audi will overtake Benz pretty soon and then VW will replace Audi in this segment and Audi will compete in a higher level.

Now it's called a Golf...I thought it was a Jetta Coupe - seeing the 2 cars (finally) aren't sharing one platform anymore. But still...the ONLY decent design to come from VW in the last years since the HOT Corrado is the latest Jetta, so I think this car looks stunning and with a decent engine it could light up Mercedes' ass. But please, don't take on BMW!!

Wouldn't it more suitable for Audi to release A3 as a saloon instead?

Price would be too close to the CLA's. This actually creates a sub-niche: small, affordable 4-door coup├ęs.

an A3 sedan will be released very soon anyways, but like loki says, this is all about having an affordable, compact 4-door coupe.

They should make the 2-door coupe just like the one pictured and it should be the Corrado.
