The Volkswagen CC receives seating for five and a number of appearance enhancements for 2013, including some new external styling and colors, new wheels, and LED running lights. Also, the sporty R-Line trim makes a return engagement this year, adding a number of tasteful interior and exterior enhancements that serve to further bolster the CC's visual appeal.
If we had to summarize the 2015 Volkswagen CC sedan, we'd say it's very much like the Passat, only more glamorous. Although the CC is actually a sedan, VW takes the same point of view as Mercedes-Benz and BMW. This "4-door coupe" is so called due to its low-slung proportions, coupe-like silhouette and frameless side windows. The CC's standard equipment list is more robust than the Passat's, a fact reflected in its substantially higher price tag. The CC's available all-wheel drive (AWD) gives it a leg up over competitors such as the Nissan Maxima and Hyundai Azera, although the Buck Regal and Infiniti Q40 are better equipped to the give the CC a run for its money.
