And that's the problem with VW they are clueless as to how to design market-specific products. It's in no way a premium brand. If Europe falls for it, fine.
Purposeless niche vehicles like the CC need to be kept from the NA market because they do nothing to reach the 800K units per year goal.
There is a real divergence between what NA customers, NA dealer, and VWOA want and what VWAG designs for the NA market and says to NA "suck it" basically. The Toerag, Tiguan, Scirocco, and CC are vehicles that Europe swallows as brilliant, but NA shuns--yes I know the Sciorcco is not here and that is a very good thing.
It's time to build SEATs in Chattanooga and Puebla with VW badges.
The irony is that if VWAG designed products to directly target the NA market, the Chinese market would swallow them up just as readily.
