Review: 2013 Volkswagen CC

Wider, longer and lower than the VW Passat the CC not only has style, comfort it also has a touch of sports car in its DNA. The hood is long and low and the driver has complete visual control over the road.

The 2013 was refreshed vigorously with frameless windows a distinct front fascia large wheels that fill the openings. The CC looks “hot” from any angle.

The best place to be is behind the steering wheel that house controls that will help keep your eyes on the road. You have two trim levels to choose from 2.0T and the VR6 Luxury. Mt test vehicle was the 2.0T which I was thrilled with.

The 2.0T develops 200 horsepower at 5100 rpm from a four cylinder engine and 207 foot pounds of torque at 1700 rpm and the Turbo is perfect fit for the four cylinder engine. Backed by only one transmission, a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Fuel mileage readings are 22 city and 32 freeway, your mileage could be better or worse, depending on your driving style.

Due to the new styling you can now get three adults in the back seat making the Volkswagen CC a five passengers, plus luggage, golf clubs, groceries? In the front seat it feels like an aviation cockpit, but not difficult to operate, Blue Tooth hooked up quickly. The instrumentation was easy to read and operate without running to the owner's manual.

The Volkswagen CC is a driver's car, you could go cross country thanks to the adjustable seats, and having them heated is a plus. The CC loves the mountain roads and you will be smiling once you get out from behind the leather wrapped steering wheel.

Pricing starts at $30,250 (MSRP) and your dreams are the limit. Go to www.vw.com and build your own CC and see how much fun that is! You can even click it to your local Volkswagen dealer, they can order the car and you don't even have to leave your recliner!
