    It is nice car. Passat has great features and attractive look.I remember hearing that the new Passat may not come to the US in favor of a US specific model and or just keeping with the CC only in the US and coming out with a CC-Wagon-Variant for the US.I hope this generation of Volks is replaced by something more interesting when the time comes.i have also others volkswagen series
