This is my 3rd VW and 1st CC, glad I bought it. Overall the CC has a modern/conservative style inside and out. Smooth lines, straight seams, and mostly nice touch materials are used throughout. Even the base model has plenty of upscale features like heated seats, dual climate, leather wrapped steering, nav, auto HID headlights and more.
The driving is easy and responsive. As VW says; "Drivers Wanted" and that's just what the CC begs you to do. The ride is European style firm but not jarring that seems to tame all but the harshest bumps. Steering is very responsive and a little on the disconnected side. Power from the 2.0T is adequate but not as predictable as American or Japanese rolling iron. Once you're accustom to the power delivery it's second nature. Road and wind noise are minimal and entry/exit is pretty easy for the class. Pro reviews all point out less than average headroom in the rear seat which is certainly true but also true is the high shoulders all around. Go to a drive-up ATM and it's a challenge to complete the transaction.
My favorite features are:
Bluetooth phone interface, really easy to use.
VW V-Tex leatherette seating.
Style and fit/finish.
Things I think VW needs to improve on the CC:
Power on the 2.0T needs to be tweaked up 20 ponies.
Visors and rear view mirror seem cheap for this level.
Better use of storage space like the center console is just 1 monster cavity and the new drivers glove box has a coin holder but no capacity and unless you have seriously small hands, the dash trim scratches your skin when you remove your hand.
There's a lot to like in the CC and I would recommend one to anyone looking for a car.
