Model New Compact Coupe (NCC)
Concept year 2010
Production year -
Engine Hybrid, 1.4 litre 4 cylinder + electric motor

The Volkswagen New Compact Coupe concept which was rolled out at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show was a proposal for a vehicle which would sit between the Scirocco and the Passat CC in VW's lineup.

The New Compact Coupe, or NCC for short, is a hybrid powered vehicle which uses a 1.4 litre turbocharged and intercooled 4-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox, and an electric motor for propulsion. The internal combustion engine puts out 148 horsepower while the electric motor backs it up with an additional 27 hp. This setup allows for a 141 mph top speed and a 0-60 mph time of 8.1 seconds - while at the same time offering 45 mpg and 98g/km CO2.

Stylewise the NCC looks almost production ready. There's no fancy gimmicks or unfeasible engineering flights of fancy. Just simple, almost bland lines and a whole load of Germanic character. That's not to say it's an ugly car - far from it, but it does seem a little boring for a coupe. The headlight and grille assembly which follows VW's new styling philosophy is significantly less dramatic or successful than that of the Scirocco's. Remove the badges and from the rear the NCC could belong to a number of different manufactures. There's a hint of BMW, Audi and a myriad of others in there - again it's not ugly it's just a little soulless.

The interior styling is a reflection of the exterior. Not offensive and clearly and sensibly laid out, but again it's far from stylish and the occupants will probably feel a little let down by the characterless fascia and dull plastic surfaces. There's seating for four, and the rear passengers get individual seats which are divided by the center console which bisects the entire cabin.
