    Rumorpile: Volkswagen Adding A Smaller CC

    Volkswagen is thinking about adding a smaller four-door coupe (See Volkswagen CC) to their lineup. There are two reasons for this. One, this would be a vilable alternative to the new Audi A3 sedan and upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLC. Two, this will provide Volkswagen another way to increase its market share in North America and China.

    Known internally as the SC (Sport Coupe), the vehicle was given approval after U.S. market studies revealed that Volkswagen's earlier plans for a two-door version of the Jetta (see NCC from the 2010 NAIAS) got only a lukewarm response from potential customers.

    “Our research suggests there is increasingly a market for a sportier and more stylish version of the Jetta in the mold of the CC, only smaller and more affordable. From the feedback we've received so far, buyers want an individual body style and the practicality of four doors.” a Volkswagen source told Autoweek.

    The SC will use Volkswagen’s new MQB platform and will become part of the Jetta lineup.

    The SC will come out sometime in 2015
