The 2012 vw cc review

Ever since Mercedes-Benz introduced the CLS, everybody has been talking about four door sedans with slanted coupe roofs. That includes Volkswagen, which responded with the CC, or 'Comfort Coupe' as it is known in Europe. Essentially, this is a Passat sedan with a fancy new dress and a few extra seats in the back. It's not a family car and it doesn't try to be, instead this is VW's answer to premium compact executive saloons like the BMW 3-Series.

The CC's sloping roof line cuts into rear headroom, but for two adults the back seat is actually pretty spacious. The front seats are incredibly adjustable so they can be fitted to almost anyone, and the upscale standard features (including heated front seats) put this car well into luxury territory.

With either a four-cylinder or V-6 engine and front- or all-wheel drive, the CC feels quick and nimble. The DSG six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and responsive, and many test drivers said the CC is fun to drive. Even the base four-cylinder model gets decent fuel economy at 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

The CC is a great choice for value-minded sedan shoppers who are willing to sacrifice some practicality for style and a bit of comfort. It's also a good alternative for those who are tired of the sea of bland family cars on our roads and want something that stands out from the crowd.
