2014 Volkswagen CC: European carves a sporty line in America

The Volkswagen CC is the Passat in Not so in North America.

The difference

If the looks good for a midsize then the CC looks expensive. The are sharper, the roof line is and more curved, and the body is The wheelbase and body of the CC are about 4 shorter than the Passat, a closer to the ground and almost 3 shorter. If a four-door midsize be called a fastback, the CC would be it.

The of this sleek body is aerodynamics and a narrower interior. The CC is 8.4 feet smaller on the inside, nearly 2 cubic feet in cargo volume. The low roofline of the Coupe causes headroom to be than the Passat, but the biggest difference of the five-seater, four-door is the rear seats, where the room and leg room lose 2 It’s noticeably cramped.

The CC is heavier than the Passat, on fuel economy, and worse on space, and it costs about more. But the CC is faster, sportier, looking on the inside and out, and may find a space between the and pricier upscale German and the more mainstream midsize

The CC has a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged injection that churns out 200 and 207 pound-feet of torque, similar to the level Mercedes-Benz CLA250. The CLA 250 258 pound-feet of torque and gets mileage and costs about more than the CC Executive.

The CC Executive

The CC Executive is a new trim for 2014, allowing owners the comforts of the VR6 without the fuel-hogging V6 engine(the all-wheel drive V6 costs $5,000 more). My model came with tan (or on black leather seats, a sunroof, 18” alloy with all-season tires, premium navigation system and 6-speed DSG automatic transmission Tiptronic and Sport modes. are all extras on the base CC Sport, starts at $32,495; the Executive loaded at $37,395.

The CC Executive is about midsize The class is crowded with interchangeable models and VW wants the to say sporty and the interior to say refined all staying practical.

The refined of styling on the interior has little to do the silly analog clock. holistically reflective of the flowing lines on the outside.

The dash has a of sharp lines and sculpted which are balanced by knobs and on the control panel. The driver is not with controls and buttons, and can the display and instrument cluster relative ease.

The RNS 510 infotainment is an upgrade over the 315 and has a slightly screen that is easy to navigate. I would appreciate commands for everything, especially since typing it into the is cumbersome and fraught with frustration. VW’s new Car-Net connects you to your devices and advanced entertainment, navigation and Like GM’s OnStar, it use a review in itself.

In short, VW’s system has things that other offer but it doesn’t stand out as anything really well. systems seem to be modeled on the of connectivity that exists a smartphone and its user; intuitive, to engage yet offering a complex set of and options. Like most systems, VW’s feels a behind that of smartphone

VW’s three-temp heated have 12 adjustable positions, is important especially for the low to the ground Even though my appreciation for the CC grew each time I got in, I not get over the reduced, coupe-like The rearview camera didn’t me feel any more comfortable the sight lines. It remains my problem with the CC; I like how it how it feels, especially how it handles, but the all of those things instill was by the reduced visibility.

The 6-speed automated manual is remarkably smooth. The direct-shift (DSG) is an electronically-controlled dual-clutch and the shifts are nearly imperceptible from the RPM dip on the tachometer.

I averaged shy of 25 mpg over 100 miles averaging 22 mph. There was no wide highway driving, so the fuel matches the combined EPA estimate.
