Goodbye CC, hello Sport Coupé Concept GTE. OK, so this isn’t the final car that’s going to replace the CC, but it’s the concept that will lead to the car that will eventually take its place. What you’re looking at is also the vehicle Volkswagen claims marks the beginning of a new design era for the German automaker.
The SCC GTE combines aspects of numerous vehicle segments into one. It has a low-slung greenhouse to give it a coupe-like feel, yet it has four doors like a sedan, and a hatchback in the rear.
The concept also shows off a front and rear that are sharper than any current VW. The vents are more angular, the headlights bleed into a larger and more bold grille, the door panels are more sculpted, and the rear is less bulbous.
