Derived from the already enjoyable 5-passenger Passat, the CC offers rakish chopped-top looks and luxury trim to please buyers ranging from aspiring youth to empty-nesters. Its good looks, pleasing power and quietly assured driving dynamics are accompanied by the greatest luxury — affordable pricing.
A junior luxury car with sporting intentions, the CC rocks a full house of finery in standard Sport trim. Soft leather greets the hands on the steering wheel and shifter, plus there’s enough brightwork and sophistication in the design and materials to set an upscale coffeehouse mood. Meanwhile, the sharply sloping roofline and narrow windows suggest performance is on hand.
The Sport trim includes a 6-disc CD changer, an MP3 jack, three power outlets, plus 12- and 8-way powered and heated driver and passenger seats. It’s a trim level that feels better than its equipment list would suggest. Much of this is thanks to VW’s sharp design staff, but generous seat travel and a galactically telescoping steering column help say Volkswagen is truly interested in your comfort.
