The Volkswagen CC is a four-door, four-seat sedan, but Volkswagen calls it a coupe, and it could pass for an expensive luxury car, without the price. The styling is radical by Volkswagen standards, certainly eye-catching in its sleekness. The CC, for Comfort Coupe, was launched as an all-new model for 2009. The 2012 offers many fantastic features and benefits that are sure to please.
As you can see from the photo above the Volkswagen CC four-door sedan flaunts a new front as well as rear end that better aligns its styling with the rest of the Volkswagen model range. Bi-xenon headlamps, with LED daytime running lamps, are now standard on the nose as are LED lamps on the tail. To complete the transformation, there are also new 17- and 18-inch wheels, not to mention there is seating for five in the VW CC!
The interior design and materials are exceptional; and the optional two-tone stitched leather bucket seats are downright Italian-like. The rear bucket seats accommodate just two in cozy comfort with decent legroom.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the six-speed Tiptronic transmission can pass for a powertrain that might be in a luxury sports sedan or coupe. The 2.0-liter engine makes 200 horsepower and gets an EPA-estimated 32 mpg Highway on Premium fuel. We found it delightful underway, smooth, and very responsive.
VR6 models use the dynamic VW 3.6-liter V6, now making 280 horsepower, and the Tiptronic. It’s a great setup, though with its higher price the value equation isn’t as compelling as it is with the 2.0.
Features and Benefits
It’s so effective that both the low and the high beams can use the same bulb. The Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) comes standard with the Bi-Xenon headlights and actually turns the headlight up to 15 degrees around corners, helping you to effectively see into the future.
Laser seam welding
Laser seam welding. Sure, it sounds cool. But what does it mean? Well, it’s kind of like the difference between a jacket with buttons and one with a zipper. The buttons keep the jacket on, but they still leave spaces in between. Whereas a zipper seals the deal, leaves no spaces, and therefore creates a much stronger bond.
When it comes to increased control, stability, and safety in virtually every situation, thanks to laser seam welding, we’ve got the situation all zipped up.
You might not notice it at first, but we hid a tiny but powerful rear-view camera underneath the badge on the back of the car. And by hidden, we mean integrated it right into the badge. Even though you’ll be too busy driving to actually see it, that optional rear-view camera will probably become one of your favorite features.
Mostly because it’ll help keep you from backing up into anything unexpected. Which was the whole point of showing it to you in the first place.
Brake disc wiping
Starting fast is nice. But stopping fast is a must. So we included a brake disc wiping feature on the CC that activates when it’s raining and your wipers are on to help maximize your braking ability and minimize the distance required to stop. Which is particularly helpful in avoiding collisions.
Multi-function steering wheel
Go ahead, grip the multi-function steering wheel. Marvel at its soft leather wrapping and functional design. Doesn’t that feel nice? This steering wheel comes with integrated controls for easy access to the entertainment system and to information such as average trip speed and miles to empty. It’s your connection to the road, your car, and so much more.
Self-dimming rear-view mirror
When turned on, the self-dimming mirror automatically detects bright lights behind your CC and dims the mirror to aid visibility. Cooler yet, the mirror knows when you put your car into reverse and lightens up so you can see what’s behind you. It sounds simple, but when you’re driving it makes all the difference.
Climatronic® climate control with heated seats
You’d think that regulating temperature would be simple. But sometimes you’re too cold and your passenger’s too warm. Or vice versa. Which is precisely why we give you the option of dual climate control. Because comfort is personal. So we let you personalize your comfort in almost every way.
Heated front seats
Because we know you’ll spend a lot of time in your CC, its seats are all about comfort. Not only do they have three degrees of warmth for you to enjoy, they’re also bolstered for extra cushioning around corners. Plus the driver’s seat has the option of eight-way adjustability, including lumbar support, to make sure that your drive is a comfortable one, no matter how long it may be.
6-speed DSG® transmission with Tiptronic®
Since the CC comes standard with a turbocharged engine, we thought you’d appreciate the option of a six-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic as well. That means you can push the gearshift into Tiptronic mode and enjoy the imperceptibly fast gear changes as you shift gears yourself. Or you can kick it into Sport mode and enjoy enhanced acceleration at the simple pump of the gas pedal. There’s nothing like having a little power to go with your performance.
2.0L TSI® engine
The award-winning 2.0L TSI® engine is tuned to have a broad, flat torque curve with a nice, wide power band. If you’re not sure what that means, step on the gas when the light turns green. That’ll tell you all you need to know.
Fuel injection technology (FSI®)
The CC engine comes with FSI, which precisely injects atomized fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder. What does that all mean? Well, it makes the engine 25% more efficient than conventional injection engines.¹ And that equals lower emissions and more power. It also gives you a few more victory laps around the city before you stop for gas.
4-corner independent suspension
A lot of suspensions are linked, so when your left wheel reacts to a pothole, your right wheel makes a similar motion. With independent suspension, all those little inconsistencies in the road will have less of an impact on you, your passengers, and the way your CC handles. That’s engineering that focuses on the road, so you can focus on enjoying the drive.
4MOTION® all-wheel drive system
With available 4MOTION all-wheel drive on your side, the CC can navigate almost any type of terrain with ease. Sure, we could have just called it all-wheel drive. But with all four wheels actively in motion and constantly working together, all-wheel drive just didn’t do justice to the special synchronized technology contained within the drivetrain. That’s because 4MOTION knows when to punch up the power and when to ease up on each wheel. It’s the ultimate kind of teamwork, and you get all the benefits without having to lift a finger.
Intelligent Crash Response System
After the airbags have been deployed in a collision, the Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) automatically unlocks all doors, turns off power to the fuel pump, and turns on the hazard lights. That’s why we call it intelligent. Because it’s looking out for you when you need it most.
Crash-optimized front end
Integrated right into the front structure of your CC are impact-absorbing elements that allow for compression during a collision. That means the energy from the impact is absorbed by the car, which helps minimize the amount of energy that reaches you.
Electric parking brake
Pulling levers or pushing pedals to activate the parking brake works fine. But an electric parking brake with Auto-Hold works even better. Because its electronics are linked with the Anti-lock Braking System, the electric brake can help prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when starting from a stop and automatically release when you accelerate. It makes something smart even smarter. All at the touch of a button.
Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR)
ASR helps prevent the wheels on your CC from spinning when you accelerate by denying engine power in situations when it senses your wheels slipping. ASR works in conjunction with the Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain traction and control whenever you accelerate or brake, in almost every type of road condition.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
You know when you have to swerve around something unexpectedly? Well, ESC helps prevent oversteering or understeering during an evasive maneuver by applying corrective forces to each of the wheels. And that helps you engage in proper counter-steering, thereby working with your VW to correct the problem. As for the thing that made you swerve, here’s to that happening only once in a blue moon.
Premium VIII touchscreen stereo with HD radio
On the touchscreen stereo you’ve got an in-dash six-CD changer, AM/FM radio with crystal-clear HD radio technology, and SD card reader, all playing tunes through eight premium speakers. Did we mention that the CD changer can also play MP3 and WMA CDs with hundreds of songs on a single disc? Plus, all of that music, entertainment, and more can be easily navigated using the intuitive touchscreen interface right in the dash of your CC.
Sirius® Radio and Traffic
Your CC comes with a 3-month trial to Sirius® Satellite Radio and Traffic with commercial-free music, sports, news, talk, entertainment, and continuously updated traffic. Sirius Traffic helps you pick the best route to your destination by guiding you around accidents, construction, and other traffic-related incidents.
Just in case you forget where you’re going, we gave you the option of two navigation systems to help guide you to your destination. Plus, the top-of-the-line navigation system comes with a three-month trial subscription to Sirius Traffic™, 30GB of storage, and CD- and DVD-playing capabilities just in case you want to stop and relax along the way.
600-watt Dynaudio® sound system
Thanks to the available 600-watt Dynaudio® sound system with 10 premium speakers and DSP® (Digital Signal Processing) technology, road noise will disappear as you spend mile after mile listening to music on the premium touchscreen sound system.
You can do more than just make and take hands-free phone calls with Bluetooth® with voice command, phonebook download, and music-streaming capabilities.¹ Enjoy the convenience of simply speaking a command to your phone and standing by as it makes the call for you. Or stream music in full stereo sound using nothing but the Bluetooth connection.
