So you’re all very impressed with the Lexus LS and its Self-Parking option huh? Well watch out Lexus because here comes Volkswagen with the new Passat CC, which was unveiled at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show, and it also parks itself.
Available as an option on the Passat CC, the “Park Assist” feature ‘automatically guides the Passat CC into a parking space at the push of a button. The driver no longer needs to steer in this case, but instead just accelerates and brakes.’
In the U.S., the Passat CC coupe lineup will start with a 2.0 TSI unit that produces 197 hp and a 3.6 FSI V6 that produces 276hp. Both engines are mated with a 6-speed automatic Triptronic transmission. The Passat CC 3.6 V6 FSI is offered with 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard equipment and has the ability to do 0-62 mph in 6.6 seconds.
