About Volkswagen CC

The 2017 Volkswagen CC takes inspiration from high-end "4-door coupes" like the Mercedes-Benz CLS, but it's positioned at a more attainable price. Foundationally, the CC is the Volkswagen Passat's brother. But while that midsize sedan can be thought of as the more mature, dutiful sibling, the CC is the hipper, more youthful one. The VW CC puts design over practicality, as its coupe-like profile cuts into rear-seat passenger space. For 2017, the CC's lineup has been cut to just two main trims, and the former all-wheel-drive V6 model and manual-transmission variants are gone. The CC has some attraction with its style and satisfying manners, but you might find more appeal in the fresher Nissan Maxima or Mercedes-Benz CLA, both of which also have lower starting prices.

There's more subtraction than addition for the 2017 VW CC. V6 and manual-transmission variants are gone, and the lineup has been cut to just two main trims: Sport and R-Line Executive.

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.

Virtually all of the changes for the 2012 VW CC occur on the inside. Those variants blessed with wood interior trim (2.0T Lux Plus, Lux Limited and 3.6L VR6 4Motion Executive) receive inserts made from a sustainable variety of dark wood rather than the earlier walnut inserts, which apparently weren't sustainable by either the forests or accountants.

"I like this car because there really isn't anything else on the road that looks like it. It is fun to drive, although, there is hesitation off the line (due to the Turbo charged engine, I'm sure). However, there have been several times that I am going 80-85 and don't even realize it. This car handles high speeds with grace. That said, I do wish VW would increase their horsepower without compromising fuel efficiency. I'm a little disappointed that the Blue Tooth is not standard and the tail pipes don't have chrome tips. Other than that, I feel that this car is a very good value for the money. Looking forward to see how she handles in the snow :) Gotta love V-dub!"

Pros: "Fun car to drive. Luxury everywhere"

Cons: "ergonomics"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This 4 cylinder 2.0 Turbo drives like a sports car with a V8 under the hood. Everything about this car says "luxury". My only complaint involves ergonomics. It is somewhat difficult to get in and out of without a can opener. If I was 20 years younger, that might not be a problem. Overall...a fun car to drive"
