At a time when fuel economy is gaining importance, Volkswagen unveils a performance oriented concept based off the Passat CC.
The concept, dubbed the Passat CC Eco Performance Concept, has a version of the 2.0-liter TSI engine available in everything from the Jetta to the Passat with an APR stage 3 turbocharger. The twist with this engine is it has three different tuning levels, good for up to 311 hp or 33 mpg highway, depending on your needs.
In Full Power mode the Performance CC makes 311 hp and 313 lb-ft of torque. The second mode (GT), gives 252 hp and 268 lb-ft and the last mode (Eco) gives 222 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. Any of the three modes should provide plenty of entertainment while driving.
The Performance CC has some of the best looking wheels ever seen on any vehicle, wrapped with high performance 245/30 R30 Yokohama tires. The car also features an H&R coil over sport suspension for improved handling. With 14-inch, two-piece, floating, cross-drilled Brembo discs and four-piston aluminum alloy brake calipers, the Performance CC should stop as well as it goes.
