2015 Volkswagen CC Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - October 31, 2014

Volkswagen’s couple-styled four-door takes aim at buyers who desire a touch more sophistication and prestige than your typical midsize sedan can offer. While other VW models have been downscaled to broaden their appeal, the CC remains loyal to its near-luxury roots.

What's New For 2015

Aside from some new wheel choices, the CC is unchanged.

Choosing Your Volkswagen CC

Most CC models are powered by a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder good for 200 horsepower. Surprisingly, a conventional six-speed manual transmission is standard, which should please traditional VW fans. Still, we suspect the vast majority of buyers will opt for the six-speed automated manual. The available 3.6-liter V6 puts out 280 horsepower and comes standard with the automated manual and all-wheel drive.

The CC comes well-equipped from the start, so much so that it could be mistaken for a bona fide luxury car. Advancing through the trim levels only augments this feeling.


Gets the 2-liter turbo and a full complement of standard features, including a rearview camera, navigation, Bluetooth phone and audio, xenon headlamps and LED taillights, leatherette seats with heat and 12-way power in front, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8-speaker audio system with a CD changer and SD card reader.


Similar to the Sport, except with 18-inch wheels and sportier trim throughout.

2.0T Executive

The 2-liter continues here, but the automated transmission comes standard. You also get a leather interior with aluminum trim and ambient lighting. Other upgrades include a sunroof, a foot swipe-activated trunk opener, keyless ignition and an enhanced navigation system. The Executive rolls on unique 18-inch wheels.

V6 Executive 4MOTION

Adds the V6 engine and all-wheel drive to the Executive, as well as several luxury touches like ventilated front seats with driver massage, a color trip computer, different wheels and a premium Dynaudio sound system.

CarsDirect Tip

We've always liked the 2.0T Executive for its sensible approach to premium motoring. It provides a high level of luxury and convenience without the added expense of the V6 and all-wheel drive. All things considered, it's a smart way to equip the CC.
