Pros

If your next sedan needs to be a stylish standout and you don’t mind sacrificing a little rear-seat comfort, VW’s 2016 CC 4-door coupe has you covered. A fully loaded CC R-Line very nearly matches the Audi A4 and Acura TLX for styling, luxury and performance.

Cons

The Volkswagen CC for 2016 isn’t big on rear-seat accommodations or trunk space. You can find a more useful interior in an equally stylish sedan by opting for a Mercedes-Benz CLA, an Infiniti Q40 or a Lincoln MKZ.

What's New For 2016

For 2016, VW’s CC sports sedan gains an upgraded apps-based audio system supporting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. A new, entry-level 2.0T Trend is added, while the R-Line gains an upgraded Executive trim. The V6 model features adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and forward-collision warning with autonomous braking.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Expert Review

Summing up Volkswagen’s 2016 CC 4-door coupe is relatively simple. Take one Passat, massage the body to create a coupe-like profile with frameless door glass, add in more high-end features, then reduce the rear seat as to be comfortable only for kids or adults of average stature. Toss in the option of a V6 engine and 4Motion all-wheel drive and you have a slick 4-door coupe costing tens of thousands less than similar cars from Mercedes-Benz and BMW, yet more exclusive than the Nissan Maxima or Hyundai Azera. Some might say an all-wheel-drive Infiniti Q40 or Buick Regal might be a better comparison car, and we’d be inclined to agree.

Driving the Used 2016 Volkswagen CC

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the 2016 Volkswagen CC’s long, low appearance says all you need to know about this car’s performance potential. The CC’s lightweight body and firm suspension create a driving experience that is both engaging yet comfortable. VW has managed to make the CC’s taut suspension proactive in the curves without being overly reactive to road imperfections, such as expansion joints and potholes. As one would expect from a VW, the CC’s steering is precise and well balanced, with just the right amount of power assist when needed. The 2.0T’s 200-horsepower turbocharged engine is quite impressive both when merging from a stop and passing at high speed. It’s also remarkably quiet and fuel efficient, aided by VW’s marvelous dual-clutch 6-speed automatic transmission. Moving to the R-Line brings a robust 280-horsepower V6 engine, traction-enhancing 4Motion all-wheel drive and an advanced driver-assist package.

Favorite Features

VW CAR-NET APP-CONNECT
VW’s newest MIB II audio system with Car-Net allows owners to access select apps from their cell phones directly through the car’s radio. Car-Net services also include advanced safety and security features including Automatic Crash Notification and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance.

4MOTION ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE
Unlike many part-time all-wheel-drive systems, VW’s 4Motion AWD continually routes power to the wheels that need it most, giving the CC an added advantage on both dry and wet pavement.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Interior

The 2016 Volkswagen CC's cabin is inviting, at least up front. High-quality materials appear throughout, highlighted by metal trim accents, faux or real leather depending on trim, and sleek, Euro-chic lines. We're especially fond of interiors outfitted with the 2-tone color scheme. The front seats are comfortable, and with 12-way-power adjustment it's easy for the driver and passenger to find a fit. The rear seats, however, are rather cramped. The trade-off for the CC's stylish, swoopy roofline is diminished rear-seat headroom and compromised outward visibility.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Exterior

The CC's calling card is its exterior design, and this VW continues to impress with its elegant shape. Although now in its seventh model year, the CC is still striking with its flowing roof, nubbed tail and upward-creasing beltline that runs through the doors. It all conveys a car that's moving even when it's not. The 2016 Volkswagen CC sedan further stands out with bi-xenon headlights and LED taillights and LED daytime running lights. R-Line models offer a sportier take with a body kit, side skirts, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and unique front fascia with large, circular fog-light housings.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Standard Features

Spend the least on a new VW CC, and you'll still get a well-equipped car. Among the standard highlights are a 6-speed manual transmission, rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, the Car-Net smartphone-enabled car-communication system, heated front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, V-Tex simulated leather seating and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The Sport trim adds the 6-speed DSG automatic, navigation, bi-xenon adaptive headlights and push-button start. The R-Line adds 18-inch wheels, leather seating, more aggressive front-bumper treatment and steering-wheel paddle shifters.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Options

As with other VW models, optional equipment for the CC is had by moving up trim levels. The Trend can be equipped with a 6-speed DSG automatic transmission and 2-tone interior, while the R-Line Executive package adds unique 18-inch alloy wheels, leather seating, a power panoramic glass moonroof and ambient lighting. The Executive Carbon adds carbon-colored leather seating and carbon interior accents. Opting for the top-line VR6 4Motion includes a V6 engine, all-wheel drive, premium Dynaudio sound system, parking sensors, power-operated rear sunshade, ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking and lane-departure warning.

Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Engine

Two engines are offered in the 2016 Volkswagen CC 4-door coupe. Most models are front-wheel drive (FWD) and use a turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 200 horsepower and returns up to 32 mpg with a manual transmission or 31 with the more popular automatic. Used exclusively on the top-end model is a 280-horsepower V6 with all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. Premium gasoline is recommended for both of the CC's engines.

2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4
200 horsepower @ 5,100 rpm
207 lb-ft of torque @ 1,700 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 21/32 mpg (manual), 22/31 mpg (automatic)

3.6-liter V6
280 horsepower @ 6,200 rpm
265 lb-ft of torque @ 2,750 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/25 mpg

How Much Does the Used 2016 Volkswagen CC Cost?

The 2016 Volkswagen CC Trend has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just under $32,500. Opting for an automatic transmission lifts that base another $1,000. Moving to the Sport ups the price of entry to $35,340, while an R-Line with the DSG automatic sells for just over $36,600. A fully loaded 3.6 VR6 4Motion tops out just a shade over the $45,000 mark. The 2016 CC is at the high end of mainstream sedans such as the Honda Accord and into the territory of entry-level luxury cars such as the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4, though those cars' prices zoom skyward with options. More competitively priced are the Acura TLX, Lincoln MKZ and Volvo S60. Before buying, be sure to check the KBB Fair Purchase Price to see what others are paying. The Volkswagen CC's resale value remains on the low end.

"Pass on this VW"

Fun to drive but that's it
Tires cup, jerky transmission, high maint costs
The car has engineering flaws. The tires cup too easily. I've put over 120k miles on this car myself and have to put on 6 sets of tires due to cupping, not because the tires wore out..simply because the noise was annoying. The lights are expensive to replace. The car performs well if you like peppy driving like me but I would never recommend this car to anyone else. The transmission is jerky, especially if you start on an inclined road. I was told by several VW dealers that is just the "TSG transmission, it's a racing transmission and that's just how it performs". I've owned the car since 2014 and 5 years later I'm still not comfortable with how it jolts you from a stop and start scenario. I should have went with the Audi A6 instead of "saving" $5k. I am glad to be finally getting rid of this car!Read less

"CC: The best Volkswagen ever produced"

An Audi A6 for 1/2 the price with better styling.
Honestly, none.
The Volkswagan CC is an Audi with a VW badge on it. I call it an Audi A6.5 because It's literally a top of the line Audi A6 with the styling and transmission of an Audi A7. It's the best car I've ever owned. The value is incredible. Worth every penny I paid and even more. Buy one if you can still find one.

"Great car for the value"

Great value, fun to drive, looks awesome!
Road noise, no safety features, limited headroom
I got a used 2013 vw cc with 40,000 miles on it about 6 months ago and it is great! Love the styling and how it drives. Inside it has leatherette seating, power adjustable front seats, and navigation. No problems so far, only thing I had to do was get an oil change.
