dont quite agree with you. all four cars are distinct in their own right. sporty and self driven cars are the c and the 3, a4 and passat look better choufer driven.

People might end up buying the C,3 over the Passat. However, comparing size-wise, isn't the Passat a bigger car equivalent to the E,5 ?

everyone has their own choices, so dont think it would suffer that much. dont think there is that much of a difference in the size of the E,5 and the passat. the 5 maybe a little more.

The Passat is Mondeo sized. The E and 5 are quite a bit bigger.
