Benefits of Driving a 2013 Volkswagen CC Sedan

With a starting price at just over $30,000, the Volkswagen CC is a unique vehicle, virtually alone in its segment. Volkswagen saw the success of large '4 door coupes' from Mercedes and BMW and thought there might be a market for a similar vehicle at a much lower price point. The CC seats five in relative comfort and quiet with a touch of sporting flair. The exterior design makes the car's 4 doors appear to be only two-- a bodystyle unavailable on anything else costing this side of $60,000.

What's new for 2013?

The VW CC has been given a pretty serious update for the 2013 model year, including dropping the 'Passat' part of its name. The front and rear of the CC have been restyled, giving the '4-door coupe' a more muscular appearance. The interior has also been reworked to allow seating for five people and bi-xenon headlights are now standard across all model ranges. Those model ranges are now even more extensive with a couple of new options and updates, including the VR6 Lux model that pairs front wheel drive with VW's excellent narrow angle V6 engine.

  • sporty
  • upscale with available all-wheel-drive

Model Review

The base engine on the CC is a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged unit that makes 200 horsepower. The optional V6 engine displaces 3.6 liters and makes 280 horsepower. While the 2.0L turbo offers plenty of power for most circumstances, the V6 transforms the CC into a genuinely fast car. Both engines are mated to a variety of 6-speed transmissions, the most interesting of which is the DSG dual-clutch unit available with the 2.0L turbo. It takes many of the best attributes of manual transmissions and combines them with the best attributes of a traditional automatic. Able to change gears in .04 seconds, it is none-the-less nearly seamless in its operation. It also operates more efficiently than a traditional automatic and is one of the reasons the 2.0T CC's are rated at 21mpg city and 32mpg highway.

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.
