Report: Volkswagen planning baby CC model for the U.S.

Reports coming out of the UK suggest that Volkswagen has plans for a second four-door coupe as a part of its strategy to boost market share in China and the United States. The model will be positioned below the new Volkswagen CC but the new four-seater will do its best to set itself apart from the Jetta.

Production is expected to take place at Volkswagen’s Puebla plant in Mexico.

The model is internally know as the SC (sport coupe), which could also be its name when it goes into production. The new smaller four-door coupe was recently given the green light for the United STates market after a positive reaction to the New Coupe Concept that debuted at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.

“Our research suggests there is increasingly a market for a sportier and more stylish version of the Jetta in the mould of the CC only smaller and more affordable. From the feedback we’ve received so far buyers want an individual bodystyle and the practicality of four doors,” a Volkswagen source revealed to Autocar.
