2016 Volkswagen CC review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Volkswagen’s four-door CC provides a more style-focused alternative to the brand’s Passat sedan, which offers more passenger room. Available with a turbo four-cylinder or a V-6 engine, the CC can have front- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Acura TLX, Nissan Maxima and Buick Regal.
New for 2016
A newly available multimedia system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring on the car’s dashboard screen. There’s a new 2.0T base model, and the 2.0T Sport and 2.0T R-Line trim levels gain keyless access with push-button start and a post-collision braking system designed to reduce the chance of a secondary collision.

I love this car. Economic in gas and powerfully

Really cheap in gas but really powerfully with the turbocharged engine. A really good morning election. Sport car but at the same time elegantly. I love it

4.4

Most reliable car you can own. Very low mileage.

This car meets of my needs. Heated seats, very low mileage only 33 thousand mile, leather power seats. Excellent condition. I recommend this car to everyone.

5.0

This is the nicest car I have ever owned!

I have owned Chevrolets, Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Cadillacs, GMCs, Fords, Lincolns, Plymouths, and Infinitis. The Volkswagen CC I currently own is, by far, the nicest car I have ever owned. I love the performance, the convenience, the economy, the efficiency, and the styling of the CC! People stop me, from time to time, and ask me about the car; they’re attracted to it’s looks and styling.
