An evolution of the well-known Volkswagen Passat, the Volkswagen CC is a widely popular, tried and tested coupé car that has been a mainstay on UK roads for over a decade. Initially launched in Asia and the USA in the late noughties, the CC didn’t make its way to the mainstream UK saloon market until 2012.
VW CC updates and facelifts
Considered to be more attractive than its predecessor, the Volkswagen CC is a five-door coupé with an enigmatic style, combined with the characteristic reliability that comes with the VW brand. Standing for ‘Comfort Coupé’ the CC has an air of elegance with its streamlined design and sleek front grille. It also arrived on the market with more kit than the Passat, so its appeal lies in both its style and practicality.
The Volkswagen comes with two trim options, itself being marketed as an improved version of the Volkswagen Passat. An impressive line-up of features is included as standard, from an infotainment system and sat nav to helpful automated driver assist support. The CC has an air of class, and its curb appeal is matched by a sleek and attractive interior that maximise its premium feel.
The CC initially launched in the UK with two petrol engines, a 1.8-litre and a more powerful 2.0-litre, as well as a 2.0-litre diesel. However, in 2013 a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol was added to the line-up. The CC itself is an improved iteration of the more widely known Volkswagen Passat, coming with more powerful engine options, and better equipped with more technological features as standard.
Practicality and style of the car
The CC’s sophistication in the cabin is typical of the expert design that Volkswagen is known for. Step inside and the whole interior has a genuinely premium feel, with black or cream upholstery options depending on trim level. Soft plastics add to the smooth ambience of the cabin, and electronically adjustable sport seats come as standard for a luxurious touch. Storage space throughout ensures the car feels uncluttered, and in the same vein, buttons are included sparingly. Dual zone climate control maximises comfort for all occupants, too.
Boot space is surprisingly generous on the Volkswagen CC. There are 542 litres of capacity available, far more than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class (400 litres) and the BMW 4 Series (440 litres). If extra space is required, the rear seats also have a 60/40 split option that can be utilised with the set of catches in the boot – perfect when drivers need to transport more than two occupants and pack in luggage. Keyless boot opening is an optional addition, and super handy for those already using two hands to carry heavy luggage. A swiping motion with your foot beneath the lower bumper will open the trunk hands-free, provided you have the keys on your person.
Continuing to live up to its reputation as a highly practical coupé, the Volkswagen CC has an impressive towing capacity on its side, too. Capable of pulling up to 1,800kg, it can easily manage a medium-sized caravan.
With economy on its side, the Volkswagen CC can cost as little as £35 a year in road tax, depending on the engine size and fuel type. It sits between insurance groups 24 and 32, which is reasonable for a powerful coupé. The Mercedes-Benz C Class sits in groups 33 to 45, while the BMW 4-Series occupies groups 30 to 42.
How a used VW CC drives
Volkswagen refined many of the Passat’s qualities to create the more road-friendly CC. Designed to improve traction and enhance handling on corners the CC has impressive grip, and improved suspension.
The Volkswagen CC comes with a range of petrol and diesel options beneath the bonnet, so along with its inherent curb appeal it also offers a range of performance options – depending on what you’re looking for as a driver. The entry-level petrol engine is a 1.8-litre TSI and can produce 158bhp. With a fuel economy of 39.8mpg, it can hit 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds, and has both automatic and manual transmission options. The more powerful petrol option is a 2.0-litre TSI, which can produce 207bhp. Off the mark quicker, it can achieve 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds. Only the six-year manual option is available with this engine.
The diesel option is a 2.0-litre TDI, with power ranging from 138bhp to 168bhp. Economy ranges from 54.3mpg to 62.8mph, depending on the powertrain. The less powerful of the two hits 0-62mph in 9.8 seconds, while the more 168bhp slices off more than a second on that, coming in at 8.1 seconds. This is faster than the Skoda Enyaq’s 8.7 seconds, as well as the Citroen C4 coupé at 10.1 seconds.

Features you can expect in a VW CC
It’s important not to allow the Volkswagen CC’s practicality be overshadowed by its tag as a ‘coupé’. The cabin is impressively spacious, with easily enough space for two adults in the back – and the ability to add a fifth occupant if needed.
You’ll also find a neat 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Thanks to Volkswagen’s impressive tech armoury, the system has aged impeccably and is kitted with Bluetooth connectivity and built-in sat nav. Stepping up the trim levels, you can expect Nappa leather upholstery and a sunroof that adds welcome natural light to the beautifully designed cabin.
In keeping with the premium feel of the interior, the Volkswagen CC comes with a host of automated tech features that make the driving experience more comfortable. Fatigue detection comes with the car at entry-level, along with bi-xenon headlights and automatic windscreen wipers.
Above entry level, you’ll find further impressive features. Adaptive suspension comes in handy for urban drivers, and parking sensors can help you get in – and out of – a tight spot. Cruise control is included, while you’ll also get traffic sign recognition and lane change assist. The latter will cause the steering wheel to vibrate and automatically move the car back into a lane if its monitoring system detects accidental lane changing without indication.
The Volkswagen CC has not been tested by Euro NCAP for a safety rating, but it does come with a whole host of air bags and additional safety features that can assure drivers of its safety. It is also akin to its predecessor, the Volkswagen Passat, which received the full five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
Trims available on the VW CC
VW CC Standard
The standard trim for the Volkswagen CC is generous with the features it includes, being marketed as a premium option in the Volkswagen line up. Bi-xenon headlights illuminate more of the road ahead, so visibility is optimised while making driving at night less tiring. Sports suspension and sports seats both maximise comfort. There’s a 6.5-inch infotainment system included, with sat nav and Bluetooth connectivity as a welcome addition, and it comes with 17-inch alloys.
VW CC GT
Wheel size is increased to 18-inch alloys on the CC GT, the higher trim level of the two available. A range of automated driving assist options including lane assist and blind spot monitoring, and a reversing camera is also included. Nappa leather upholstery also adds class to the cabin, and adaptive chassis control offers three settings: Normal, Sport and Comfort.
