The Volkswagen CC is a sedan for shoppers who want something with a bit more style and flair than your average rolling midsize appliance. Following Mercedes' lead with its E-Class-based CLS "four-door coupe," VW has taken its mainstream Passat sedan and, with a nip here and a tuck there, transformed its architecture into a sleeker and more sensual offering.
The current Volkswagen CC (the CC moniker stands for "Comfort Coupe") is based on the previous-generation Passat. It owes its striking stance to dramatically redesigned sheet metal and a lower, sloped roof line. The suspension has also been tightened for sharper handling and the base engine is a torque-rich, fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder instead of the Passat's unrefined iron-block five-cylinder. The CC boasts high-quality furnishings and, for its first four years, featured a more sculpted two-person backseat instead of the typical three-passenger arrangement. The result is a suave and sporty European sedan that our editors have deemed an excellent antidote to mainstream mediocrity.
Used Volkswagen CC Models
The Volkswagen CC was first introduced for the 2009 model year. A used CC is pretty similar to a new one, though there have been a few changes over the years. In that first year, a conventional six-speed automatic was optional on the 2.0T model rather than the current car's DSG transmission. Bluetooth was an option and the standard stereo did not feature the touchscreen interface. For 2009-'10 CCs, the V6 came standard with front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive being optional. That changed for 2011 and '12, when all-wheel drive was standard for the V6. Most notably, all 2009-'12 CCs came with rear seating for two people instead of the three-person seat that debuted for 2013. Exterior styling was also slightly different.
