Back in March, we reported on a rumor that Volkswagen would be planning a smaller four-door coupe as a way to grow their market share in the U.S. and China. Codenamed SC (short for Sport Coupe), the model would be based on Volkswagen's MQB platform and come out sometime in 2015. Now in the new year, Auto Express has some new information on the SC.
Auto Express' report says the SC would be called the Golf CC and use the MQB platform that will underpin the next generation Golf Wagon (Jetta Wagon for us in the states) and the Audi A3 sedan.
The European market would get a 1.4L turbo four-cylinder and a 2.0L turbodiesel four-cylinder. The U.S. would get larger engines. There is also talk of a GTI model.
The Golf CC is expected to roll out sometime in 2015.
