VW CC information: everything you need to know if you own it, are thinking of buying one or just want to find out more about Volkswagen’s ‘Coupaloon’. Click on the links below for all of CAR magazine’s news, reviews, videos, scoops and spy photos of the CC car range.
Standing for Comfort Coupe, the CC manages to turn the humdrum Passat into a relatively handsome four-door swoopy-roofed coupe in the manner of the Mercedes CLS. For more information on the VW CC, click on our further stories on the links below.
60sec road test
Originally called the Passat CC, VW’s since dropped the first part of the name to put some clear air between its humdrum company car saloon and the glammed up CC. It’s definitely the more alluring car and remains reasonably practical, with decent space in the back, although the low roof means you’ll need to duck to get in. It’s a refined driving experience, with surprisingly lovely steering, and an interior that’s as flawlessly put together as you’d hope even if it now feels a generation behind.
The one we’d buy
2.0 TDI DSG
The one we’d avoid like the plague
Rivals to consider
Audi A5 Sportback, BMW 4-series Gran Coupe, Mercedes CLS
Nicer looking than a Passat, quality interior, relaxing drive
Very much a niche offering, practicality compromised
