Volkswagen CC review (2012-2017)

With the Volkswagen CC you'll get the option of a crisp 158bhp 1.8 TSI plus a sporty 207bhp 2.0 which turns the CC into a competitive performance car. Opt for the super-efficient 2.0 diesel, though, and keep running costs relatively low. The Volkswagen CC should also hold its value come resale time.

The VW CC was replaced by the VW Arteon in 2017.

The Volkswagen CC gets the best of the Passat's engine line-up - choose from the 1.4-litre turbo petrol that produces 158bhp or opt for the 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol with 207bhp. There's also a 2.0-litre turbodiesel which comes in 138bhp and 168bhp versions. All models are available with six-speed manual or six-speed DSG automatic gearboxes, while the 1.4 gets a seven-speed DSG. The 1.4-litre petrol will be sufficient for most buyers' needs - it manages 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 137mph. Meanwhile, the 128bhp 2.0 TDI reaches 0-62mph in 9.8 seconds and has a top speed of 133mph. All models come with sports suspension, but the top-spec GT model gets adaptive dampers which allows the suspension to be changed between Normal, Comfort and Sport modes. In the latter of these modes, the handling is surprisingly sharp but the steering doesn't match up.

The Volkswagen CC comes with a highly efficient 2.0-litre TDI BlueMotion Technology diesel engine, which returns 61.4mpg and emits just 120g/km of CO2. If you choose to combine this with the DSG auto, you still get returns of 53.3mpg and 134g/km of CO2. Those in pursuit of performance should opt for the GT 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine, which goes from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds. Be warned, though, it only manages 38.7mpg and if you combine this with emissions of 169g/km you get a very expensive vehicle. Unsurprisingly, the petrol models aren't quite as clean or frugal - the 1.4 TSI manual claims 44.8mpg and emits 147g/km of CO2, and with an auto box these figures change to 45.6mpg and 144g/km of CO respectively. While no version is especially cheap to insure, the more powerful 2.0 TSI petrol gets the highest insurance group of the range.

The Volkswagen CC is available in two specifications - entry-level, regular CC and top-spec CC GT. Both versions feature an upmarket chrome grille, a smart lower bumper and LED daytime running lights incorporated into piercing bi-xenon headlamps. The premium look is completed by scalloped sides, a sweeping roofline and further LED lights at the rear. The interior, unsurprisingly, looks pretty similar to the Passat's, meaning the controls are simple and easy to use. The interior also features an analogue clock which was sourced from the latest Volkswagen Phaeton luxury saloon and the top-spec CC GT model comes in a range of Nappa leather finishes. The sporty GT versions also get 18-inch alloys, heated front seats, cruise control, plus front and rear parking sensors. The entry-level CC still comes with a generous amount of equipment, though, with 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, DAB radio, automatic wipers, front sports seats and dual-zone air-con. Special seats are also available with a massage function. On top of this, buyers can specify an automatic tailgate which opens when you wave your foot under the rear bumper.

Following the redesign of the CC, Volkswagen placed more importance on style than they did on the practicality factor. The new sweeping roofline, for example, really does intrude on headroom in the rear. While the original Passat CC had two individual back seats, this one gets a three-seat rear bench and passengers will agree that the central seat is very cramped. Despite the cars larger dimensions, boot space doesn't match up to the Passat saloon - the CC only offers 452 litres worth of space. Having said that, the back seat splits and folds - at the simple touch of a button located in the boot - to allow owners to carry awkward sized items. Plus, the CC has an impressive towing capacity of 1,800kg. There's also a range of storage cubbies including a refrigerated glove compartment. 

As the Volkswagen CC is fairly uncommon on UK roads, it hasn't featured yet in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, but Volkswagen did achieve a solid ranking of 16th in our list of top manufacturers. Plus, the previous generation Volkswagen Passat CC finished an impressive 34th in the 2013 Top 100 survey. The Volkswagen CC hasn't been put through the rigors of a Euro NCAP crash test yet, either, but the Volkswagen Passat - on which it is largely based - was awarded with the full five-star rating. Volkswagen also offer an abundance of hi-tech safety accessories available as options, including fatigue detection, active head restraints, a blind spot warning system and lane keep assist. Meanwhile, autobrake brings the car to a halt at low speed if it senses an imminent collision. Further to this, drivers can specify automatic adjustment of the headlight beams, and there's a system that recognises road signs and displays them on the dashboard.

Volkswagen CC Expert Review

Staff Writer

The Volkswagen CC, which is based on the European market's Passat sedan, receives an interior freshening for the 2012 model year. Volkswagen has updated the 2012 CC's standard walnut trim inserts with a variety of new dark wood options for CC buyers to choose from. Volkswagen has also added a new analog clock to the CC, and mounted it directly above the radio controls.

Designed to compete with "four-door coupes" like the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and corporate stablemate Audi A7, except at a middle-management price point, the 2012 Volkswagen CC is a stylish, sporty, four-passenger version of the European-market Passat. The inside is as stylish as the outside; its four individual seats are comfortable and supportive and flanked by amenities often seen on cars that are double the price of the CC.

The Volkswagen CC comes with the GTI's 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 as standard. Volkswagen also has an optional V-6 for those who want more oomph. Available only with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission, the CC Executive gets a 3.6-liter V-6 that produces 280 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque.

Body style: Sedan
Engines: 2.0L turbo I-4, 3.6L V-6
Transmissions: 6-speed manual, 6-speed dual-clutch automatic, 6-speed automatic
Models: Volkswagen CC Sport, Volkswagen CC R-Line, Volkswagen CC Lux, Volkswagen CC Executive

No major changes in store for the 2012 Volkswagen CC. The only change the CC receives this year is a new analog clock (inspired by a Swiss timepiece) that VW placed above the radio controls, and new wood trim. Volkswagen replaced the old walnut trim, with a variety of dark wood choices. The new wood trim options are sustainable, giving the CC a bit of eco-friendliness spread throughout the CC's cabin.

When the Volkswagen CC debuted in 2009, it looked like nothing else on the road (with the exception of the Mercedes-Benz CLS). Nowadays, it's a bit less unique looking, but that doesn't mean it's any less handsome. The four-door CC sports a coupe-like profile with its long, low hood, flared wheel arches, and stretched roofline. The CC's good looks change slightly depending on trim level. The CC Sport gets 10-spoke, 17-inch wheels, while the R-Line gets 18-inch wheels that are shared with the CC Lux. The CC Executive gets unique 18-inch turbine-blade wheels.

The Volkswagen CC gets its standard walnut wood trim replaced with sustainable dark-colored wood options for 2012. VW has also added an analog clock to the CC's cabin. Designed after a Swiss timepiece, the CC's analog clock is positioned in the center console above the radio controls. The 2012 CC has a generally pleasant cabin with soft-touch plastics and luxurious-looking trim. While we weren't fans of the CC's cheap-feeling leatherette interior, we found the seats comfortable and supportive. We found the CC's rear bucket seats to be adequate, except headroom suffers with the rakish roofline.

The 2012 Volkswagen CC is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 that produces 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 280 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter engine is available only on the CC Sport, R-Line, and Lux. A six-speed manual and six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are the available transmissions, powering the front wheels. In our testing the 2.0-liter mill proved enough to help the CC to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds with the manual transmission. Available only with all-wheel drive and a traditional six-speed automatic on the CC Executive, the V-6 powers the CC from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds.

The 2012 Volkswagen CC comes standard from the factory with driver and front passenger airbags, and side curtain airbags in the front, and rear. The 2012 CC also features Volkswagen's Intelligent Crash Response System, which shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazards in the event the CC is involved in an accident. The CC has standard traction control, electronic stability control, engine braking assist, and an electronic locking differential.

CC 2.0L I-4: 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway (manual); 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway (auto)
CC 3.6L V-6: 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway (auto)

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Volkswagen CC diesel 2012 review

Despite being a contradiction in terms, the four door coupe look has legs with a few manufacturers going down that path including Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai. Most notable is the arresting Benz CLS that really lit the wick for this type of car more than a decade ago.

VALUE

Now sporting the square-set VW front and rear end styling, CC cuts a fine silhouette on the road from all angles and backs this up with a level of luxury not often seen this side of $100 grand.

Explore the 2012 Volkswagen CC range

But the CLS spells big bucks unlike the Volkswagen CC - a similar style car but at an affordable starting price of $54,990 for the front wheel drive 2.0Tdi we drove. There's also an all wheel drive 3.6 litre V6 petrol model at ten grand more - still a bargain in the greater scheme of things.

It used to be called the Passat CC but that's now been abbreviated to simply CC - just like corn chips. But there's nothing corny about the VW CC - it's the real deal and a sheer delight - to look at and to drive.

FEATURES

Goodies include Nappa leather upholstery, a high tech Satnav system, rear view camera, premium audio with a multi device interface, comprehensive trip computer, dual Bluetooth, auto bi-xenon headlights, paddle shift, adaptive cruise and plenty more. The test car also came with Driver Assistance Package that features lane assist, side assist with steering intervention (yes), adaptive cruise and front and rear emergency braking.

We were taken aback by the level of intervention all this equipment can deliver when activated. It will actually steer you away from the sides of the road if you stray, it will stop the car if you miss a stationary object in front, it will maintain a pre-selected distance behind a leading car over  a wide variance of speeds.

Where does it all end? Cars will drive themselves we reckon - and not too far into the future.

TECHNOLOGY

The CC runs a 2.0-litre turbodiesel four cylinder engine we've seen in numerous other VW products, with, in this case, a six-speed (DSG) dual clutch manumatic driving the front wheels through an extended locking differential (XDL) similar to that in the Golf GTi.

The transmission is well suited to the engine giving short increments between gears that are selected imperceptibly up and down. There's a sport mode if you want sharper responses.

The engine is good for 125kW/350Nm and can get as good as 5.7-litres/100km thanks to extensive use of Bluemotion "eco" technology - brake energy regeneration, auto stop/start optimised aerodynamics, low rolling resistance tyres and other stuff. CC has strong performance and makes minimal noise or vibration.

DRIVING

The ride is sports/luxury, capable yet cossetting, cruisy but corner friendly. Safety is five stars with eight airbags and stability control doing its stuff. On the road it feels luxurious and sporty. You can waft along at the speed limit in a cocoon of near silence. Hit out on secondary roads and it's the same - supple and controlled.

The engine delivers strong roll on response thanks in part to 350Nm being available from just 1700rpm. But we found the side assist system caused a disconnected, wandering feeling in the steering. Lucky you can turn it off.The cabin has ample seats for five, slightly compromised in rear headroom , and a large boot replete with a full size alloy spare.

Park assist is handy as are the rain sensing wipers and dusk sensing headlights (bi-xenons). We really like the looks of this car - it's a class act inside and out. The interior is right up there with the heavy hitters in the luxury class. It's no sports car but is elegant and stylish from all angles.

VERDICT

No need for the V6 because the turbodiesel has plenty in reserve....and the front drive system is capably controlled by that electronic diff.

2012 Volkswagen CC 125TDI Review

VOLKSWAGEN CC REVIEW

Vehicle style:  Coupe-styled four-door sedan
Price: $54,990. | As tested: $64,140
Listed fuel economy: 5.7 l/100km. | on test: 6.7 l/100km.

OVERVIEW

Back in 2008 at the Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled a slinky coupe-styled version of its Passat sedan - the elegant Passat CC.

It went on to sell 220,000 units world-wide, including around 2700 in Australia since its 2009 local launch. Here, the Passat CC became VW’s premium flag-carrier.

Now a new model, with the word "Passat" erased from its bootlid, has been launched here in two guises: a 125TDI diesel and a four-paw 132 FSI V6 petrol version.

It’s now known simply as the Volkswagen CC.

The big news with the new model however is that a suite of pretty fancy former options - now made standard - adding between $5000 and $6000 of enhanced value to an already appealing and well-priced car.

INTERIOR | RATING: 4/5

Quality: While not quite in the class of the interiors found in its upmarket Audi cousins, the new CC is classier and more stylish than most out there at its entry price-point.

The 125TDI chosen for this review had black leather trim (beige and black is also available) and the optional walnut trim highlights. There is plenty of soft-touch plastic and fit and finish cannot be faulted.

Comfort: The CC is one of those cars that as soon as you climb in behind the wheel, you feel right at home.

The two front seats are beautifully crafted, bolstered like sports seats and with all the electric adjustment you could ever need. Combined with the leather-wrapped height and reach-adjustable steering wheel, locking in the perfect driving position is a doddle.

The rear bench seat is – at least for the outer two passengers – also well crafted and comfortable. But you wouldn’t want to go from Melbourne to Sydney in the centre section. It’s flat and uncomfortable and your feet have to straddle a fat transmission tunnel.

The test car was fitted with the optional active-climate-control seats with massage function. It’s a touch of luxury - perhaps more an indulgence - but they can certainly help keep aches at bay on a long trip.

Despite its sloping coupe-like roof-line, rear headroom is ok for anyone up to a six-footer (or a tad more) in the old money.

Equipment: Standard equipment includes a pretty fancy eight-speaker AM/FM/CD MP3  audio system, sat-nav, Bluetooth, rear-vision camera, 12-way electrically-adjustable front seats, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel with gear-shifting paddles, cruise control, multi-function trip computer, colour screen and dual-zone climate-control air-con.

Also standard are front-and-rear floor mats, automatic boot-lid release with an easy-open function, an automatic-dimming interior rear-vision mirror and driver’s side exterior mirror, parking sensors, power windows, rain-sensing wipers, alarm with interior monitoring, an electronic engine immobiliser and an electronic ignition lock.

The test car was fitted with more than $9000 of optional extras and included were a driver-assistance package ($3300), walnut trim highlights ($500), 19-inch alloys ($1900), panoramic glass sunroof ($2000), active climate-control front seats with a luxurious and self-indulgent massage function, and metallic/pearl-effect paint that added $700.
 
Storage: The CC's cavernous boot can swallow more than 530litres of luggage. Adding to the storage flexibility, the rear-seat backs have a 60/40 split and can fold virtually flat (and can be dropped by flicking levers inside the boot). There is also a ski hatch.

There is however quite a high lip over which you have to lift your luggage. Inside, cubby holes are somewhat limited.

There are small front-door pockets but none in the rear, an adequate glove box, a small drop-under-dash tray on the driver’s side, pockets in the rear-seat backs, two cup holders in the front and rear plus a roof-mounted sunglasses holder.

Then there’s a secret and handy “dish” under the boot floor. It’s formed because the spare is locked in face down and is just the thing for jumper leads, a tow rope or even to hide a laptop. 

ON THE ROAD | RATING 3.5/5  

Driveability:  While not in the same class as the Audi A4’s 150kW/400Nm TDI engine in power, torque and fuel efficiency (CC 5.7 l/100km, A4 4.9 l/100km), the VW’s 125kW/350Nm engine is responsive, gives no hint of lag and it makes light work of overtaking and hills.

It's swift in a relaxed way on the highway, and you can't help but feel that on a German autobahn the CC could cruise all day at 160km/h plus.

Turbo-diesels and DSG-dual-clutch transmissions are a match made in heaven and this is certainly the case with the CC.

 

Shifts are swift and decisive (although it's not as decisive away from the line) and there are steering-mounted paddles if you want to command the changes yourself.

One thing, though… the paddles could be a bit taller for better 'fingertip control'.

Refinement: If there’s one thing today’s best turbo-diesels have going for them is a level of refinement undreamt of not too many years ago.

There is a hushed premium feel to the way the CC performs on road: noise, vibration and harshness is all-but absent, helped no doubt by the acoustic windscreen glass.

The overall refinement is improved both acoustically and for ride by the rear-suspension set-up that is isolated by sub-frames on four rubber-metal mounts.

Suspension: The CC shares its well-sorted underpinnings with the Audi A4. There are MacPherson struts at the front and a multi-link set-up at the rear.

With the 19-inch wheels fitted to our test car, the CC’s ride will be too firm for some. We prefer the smoother ride the smaller 18-inch wheels provide.

The rack-and-pinion steering system is electrically assisted, rather than hydraulic, and provides quite reasonable feel on the highway, and is light at low speeds (around car parks and the like).

Braking: The 125TDI uses ventilated discs at the front and solids on the rear. There is an electro-mechanical parking brake, ABS, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and an automatic hold function.

SAFETY | RATING: 5/5

ANCAP Rating: 5 Stars

Safety features: The CC comes standard with six airbags (dual front, front and rear side and full-length curtains), a fatigue-warning system and lane assist, ABS brakes, traction and stability control, tyre pressure monitoring and seat belt  pre-tensioners (front and outer rear) with belt-force limiters.

WARRANTY AND SERVICING

Warranty: Three years; unlimited kilometres (paint warranty also three years and unlimited kilometres).

Service costs: Service costs and charges can vary; speak with your dealer prior to purchase.

HOW IT COMPARES | VALUE FOR MONEY RATING: 4/5

Audi A5 TDI Sportback - $68,700: An inevitable comparison. The $54,990 CC is considerably cheaper, though the Audi has the more power and more eager response.

The Audi's 4.8 l/100km also betters the CC's 5.7 l/100km fuel consumption. It's a toss-up which wins for style and finish though. (see A5 reviews)

Mercedes-Benz C 200 CDI - $60,900: Not as eager as the CC nor, arguably, does it have the same stylish presence in the carpark as the very elegant CC.

Slightly better than the CC for economy (the Benz manages 5.4 l/100km), it's good buying if you're not bothered by the staid looks. (see C-Class reviews)

BMW 320d - $60,990: Certainly the benchmark for verve, an alive chassis and an electric and involving sporting drive. The Beemer’s 4.5 l/100km also makes it the most fuel-efficient of this group.

It's an appealing car all-round topped off with a classy interior but, like the Merc, quite a bit dearer than the CC. (see 3 Series reviews)

Note: all prices are Manufacturer’s List Price and do not include dealer delivery or on-road costs.

TMR VERDICT | OVERALL RATING: 4/5

The new CC is all about style: from any angle, it really is a handsome car.

It offers a premium interior - fit and finish is excellent as is the classy feel to the materials and surfaces - and it comes very well kitted-out with standard features.

Four-up, the CC is an extremely comfortable car in which you could happily cruise all day (the centre rear seat though is for short trips only).

Performance from the 125TDI diesel is spirited enough, but bettered by other premium purchases at this price point. If you want more sports-car-like performance, there’s always the V6 all-wheel-drive petrol version. A fatter cheque however will be required.

But there is substance behind the Volkswagen CC's slinky coupe lines. At $55k it's good buying. We'd recommend a look if shopping in this segment.
