Benefits of Driving a 2012 Volkswagen CC Sedan

With great understated styling and upscale standard features such as heated front seats and rain-sensing windshield wipers even on the base Sport model, the latest sport sedan from Volkswagen is positioned to fight well-known European luxury brands like BMW's 3-Series.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the CC gets several interior updates, as well as a few new trim levels. Joining Sport, R-Line, Executive and Lux are Lux Plus and Lux Limited, both of which offer slightly different feature configurations. In addition, several interior modifications have been made, including the addition of a small analog clock to the dash, revised wood trim and a standard electronic brake switch moved to the center console.

Model Review

The CC has two available engines: a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder, available in the Sport, R-Line and Luxury models, makes 200 hp and has 207 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6L 6-cylinder available in the 4Motion ups that power output to 280 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. While all models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic, only the Sport and R-Line can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 4Motion with the V6 engine turns in the best 0-60 mph time, at 6.2 seconds.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
