Passat CC is now just CC (at least in the US)

Further proof that Volkswagen is killing off the Passat marque in the US has just come to light. Volkswagen has decided to drop the Passat from the 4-door coupé's name, thus calling it simply "CC". The use of the revised name has been widely used on the vw.com website. A quick check on volkswagen.com however still shows "Passat CC" leading us to believe that this is a US-only thing.

This is just like dropping Golf or Rabbit from GTI and .:R32.

Come on VW, we all know what car it is. Renaming stuff like this is plain silly.

This is exactly like that and this is why I say this is proof that they're killing off the Passat name in the US.
