Volkswagen CC Review

The Volkswagen CC (formerly referred to as the Passat CC) has been improved to feature sharper design features and an additional kit that includes low-emitting and economical diesel engines. The CC may not be as popular as the Estate and Saloon models of the Passat, many company car drivers and private buyers still opt for the Volkswagen for its four-door practicality. But the Volkswagen CC does have its downsides, such as a sloping roofline that gives less headroom and a narrow, shallow boot opening.

Pros

The CC’s engine range includes one diesel engine and two petrol units. The entry-level unit is a 1.8-litre petrol TSI at 158 bhp; this one comes with either a seven-speed DSG auto ‘box or a six-speed manual gearbox. The 1.8 unit is capable of arriving at 62mph from standstill in just 8.5 seconds. If you want stronger power, there’s the 2.0-litre TSI at 207bhp, which comes with either a six-speed DSG gearbox or a six-speed manual. The TSI also promises a manual model that is not just smooth, but also quite fast in its 7.3-second sprint at reaching just 62mph. Another option would be the 2.0-litre TDI at 138 or 168bhp. The 138bhp features 350Nm of torque, while its six-speed manual model can reach the 62mph sprint after 9.8 seconds. The 168bhp diesel unit is slightly faster in its 6.8 seconds time.

In terms of handling, the Volkswagen CC minimizes body roll and grips well all throughout. The model is also a worthy competitor against the Audi A5 Sportback and the Volvo S60. But it’s not as worthy as the BMW 3 Series in terms of delivering a little excitement as you drive.

While driving you can switch from Comfort, Sport, to Normal mode. Comfort mode is recommended for easy cruising, while the Sport increases steering weight and stiffens suspension. The cabin enhances your ride through sound-absorbing materials in the front, rear, and underneath areas of the vehicle. Even the windscreen includes an acoustic film layer as standard equipment. Petrol engines are barely heard inside, but the same result isn’t as quiet with the diesel engines. Wind and road noise are also kept at a minimum.

Luggage capacity is generous at 452 litres and the rear seats can be folded to make the boot space larger. The seats can easily be adjusted by just pulling them down to an almost flat position; no need to go all the way to the car rear just to put the seats down.

Cons

Steering tends to be unresponsive, delivering little feedback as you go further down the road. Thankfully the CC’s body is able to absorb large potholes and the overall ride is compliant to most directions. Although the boot space is large, luggage can be a challenge to place inside due to the shallow and narrow boot opening. Expect a bit of a struggle fitting in the bulkier or trickier items out back. You might also have problems parking or checking your view at the back due to the small size of the rear window.
