2009 Volkswagen CC VR6

Sleek, emotive styling, a of powerful but efficient engines, and a but capable sport-luxury suspension. be a high-budget European sports-luxury right?

Wrong. It’s a and it’s a four-door sedan the CC, for Comfort Coupe.

VW may be the world’s in niche marketing, automotive as not only does its product have choices in all common and some not so common — in sizes from small to and low-budget to luxury, wagons in sizes, hatchbacks ditto. from Euro-MPV through and even an American minivan, and hardtop convertibles — it has some that defy categorization.

Like the CC. There is a in the larger and much more Mercedes-Benz CLS, but the two are hardly Based on VW’s popular which has proven a successful to the boring mainstream mid-sized the CC trades some capacity it’s strictly a four-seater for style. It looks like an coupe, with a steeply-raked near-fastback roofline, and curvaceous But it holds four adults in with plenty of space for as well.

Positioned above the Passat in the V the CC is offered in Sport and Luxury levels with the 2.0T FSI direct-injected, turbocharged, and intercooled engine and Sport and 4Motion AWD with the 3.6-liter narrow-angle VR6 V6, now FSI direct fuel injection and 280 hp. a six-speed manual? The 2.0 Sport is only choice. All others are with a six-speed torque-converter with Tiptronic manual-shift

2.0T Sport CCs are more equipped than other with halogen headlights others have adaptive single-zone AC instead of dual-zone Climatronic climate control, two-speed wipers instead of Sense automatic with washer nozzles, manual of automatic interior rearview dimming, V-Tex instead of upholstery, and fewer option Meaning no Technology Package of hard disk-based navigation rearview camera, and Media Interface (MDI). Manual plus less luxury equals less weight more performance, for less Sounds like a deal to me.

At the other end are the VR6 models, fully-equipped and into luxury car territory. means sport-luxury in a very way, while 4Motion VW’s performance-oriented namesake drive system for improved and all-weather abilities. A CC VR6 Sport the Technology Package has been my for the past week, and a fine it has been.

APPEARANCE: It’s a the smiling chrome-trimmed rounded grille and uniquely-shaped headlights see to But other than those the CC looks not at all like any other ever. It’s noticeably and lower, and sits marginally to the ground. And, as sleek as the may look, it’s a brick to the curvaceous CC. There is hardly a line to be found on its surface; the sharply-defined character line on the curves gently downward as it toward the rear. Both the and rear window are raked more than usual, and the base of the windshield is not all that far — it’s at the rear of the front wheels — it to be as the near-fastback roofline moves the visual center rearwards. The bulge in the hood suggest — and an in-line engine, the CC’s is transverse, like all Volkswagens. Frameless door enhances its coupe-like character. The panel features huge that reprise the shape of the and a well-defined spoiler lip. The VW badge at the rear is the trunk

COMFORT: If there are major between the CC and the Passat outside, are even more within. all the two cars share is VW’s simple and functional design All of the details are different. The CC ‘s is best-describes as Euro-contemporary, with an two-tone dark-over-light color and copious but tasteful use of aluminum on the instrument panel, console, and All of the amenities expected in a luxury car are in the VR6 Sport, with all windows up and down, multi-level heated, front seats, striking leather upholstery, white and black bolsters, and a leather-rimmed wheel, adjustable for both and reach and featuring audio and system controls. The main are easy to see and protected from Trip computer information is between the tach and speedometer. the optional Technology Package, and audio systems are controlled via a touch-screen interface, a most departure from the complex of other German automakers. system controls are separate, and simple and familiar. Leave it to for simple German engineering! of a rear bench, the CC has two rear similar in comfort (which is to say very good) if not in adjustability to in front. It’s not merely +2 as an like too many coupes. A console with storage and a ski-passthrough behind the armrest, and folding seatbacks add convenience. The is commendably large, and although the materials mentioned a space-saver I found a real spare under the trunk floor. A and all too rare, thing!

SAFETY: Full safety is found in the CC, with four-wheel disc brakes with Assist, the ESP electronic stabilization traction control, and Electronic Locking (EDL). Advanced-design front airbags are joined by side airbags and full-length curtain bags, with side bags available. adaptive headlights that the direction of the car to improve night-time are standard equipment on VR6 models.

RIDE AND HANDLING: Built as it is on the basic platform as the Passat, the CC a fully-independent MacPherson strut / multilink rear suspension and rigid unibody structure. The is tuned in the European luxury It feels soft, and quite in gentle driving. Wick up a bit, and instead of continuing to soft the car hunkers down, up, and gets to business. It’s an car to drive, quickly or sedately, on any Steering effort is just and the brakes are very good.

In either available CC engine, FSI fuel injection is the secret to the It allows higher compression, in case 12:1, for improvements in economy, power, and emissions. earlier VW VR6 engines, the CC’s a narrow vee angle for compactness. The old angle has been traded for degrees, for an even more engine. Much shorter an inline six, and narrower a V6, it fits neatly across the bay.
