You see, the CC isn’t a Passat at all, and has an entirely new This isn’t just a looking car from VW; it’s a kind of car.

For starters, one of those four-door coupes. started the four-door coupe with the CLS and the design of the CC is reminiscent stolen) from that German sedan. We can’t that against the car though, as it is a piece of sheet metal.

Another coupe trait is the doors. The CC also gets a prominent front grille to the other VW models and a nice radiator space with a opening. Strong lines run the side of the car, making for an profile, however, while the CC is from almost every the rear isn’t one of them.

The of the CC is also much more a coupe than a sedan – or at like a nice and sporty I was impressed with the power, and driving feel of my VR6 4Motion even after having the previous week behind the of an Audi A4 3.2.

Which me back to the name. I’m sure a lot of reading this article are who picked up on the Passat name, who own a and who are thinking about a new one. I’m not sure if this is the right car for The people who really should be this are A4, C-Class, IS, G and 3 Series It’s also a great to even higher model those. Yes, it’s good.

Let me explain.


As the rear doors and seat room of most luxury cars don’t get utilized, those customers mind the fact that the CC has four seats. This layout also means the rear seat area is luxurious with individual for the two rear passengers.

Up front the luxury is definitely up to par leather surfaces on all but the lowest 2.0T FWD) trim. And more than just leather seats; the inserts are in a thick bar-pattern like a muscle car and are extremely supportive. seats are heated with adjustability with 4-way support and a three-position driver setting.

All models get a tilt and leather-wrapped steering wheel audio controls and VR6 models get shifters for the tiptronic six-speed transmission. The audio controls the most ergonomic, however. control is standard and is located on a stalk.

I absolutely loved the center console, which a great sports car-like to the cockpit, with everything at hand.

Other interior include power windows one-touch for the front and a multi-function that shows mpg, settings and other info. VR6 also come standard dual-zone climate control, and a 600-watt 10-speaker sound – although a navigation system is on all models. The CC also comes an auto-hold parking brake, for stopping and starting on steep

One thing that seems in the CC, however, is a smart-key and push-button With such a modern car that is so luxurious inside, it a pity to have to actually that plastic key into the slot in the dash.


you do though, the sound is surprising. the V6 under the hood comes to it’s more like an 8. It to sound that way when out driving about too, a nice rumble and growl. it feels a lot like an 8 as well.

The engine generates its power at low rpm 280hp at 6200 rpm and 265 ft-lbs of at 2750 rpm. VW says translates to a 0-60 time of 6.2 with the heavier but better-gripping Fuel-economy is rated at 17/25 mpg with a noticeably better mpg rating for the front-wheel drive VR6 (which is only available in the

to a sportier suspension and more steering than the Passat, the CC is a to drive. The 235/40-series tires, around 18-inch wheels, hurt either – although the design was a touch too hip-hop for my

Steering feel is heavy and direct – unlike the often-sloppy you get in many cars with ratio steering systems. means that it requires a more effort at low speed I actually prefer) and tracks as an aero on the highway. (This car gets an A+ on the autobahn test).

an up-front seating position and a front overhang the view of the is excellent, although we can’t say the same for the rest of the angles. you first slide into the CC and that door it feels coffin-like with stubby windows and a tiny rear Just because the windows let in a lot of light, however, doesn’t the blind spots were all bad – although the side mirrors use to be a little larger.

And when it comes to letting in the that task is best by the massive panoramic sunroof covers the entire front-half of the

In the safety department the CC is well with driver and passenger and side airbags and curtain for front and rear. (Rear airbags are optional). Stability comes standard, as does ABS anti-slip regulation (ASR) and Assist.
