VOLKSWAGEN CC V6 FSI REVIEW

Vehicle Style: Medium Four-door Coupe
Engine/trans: 220kW/350Nm 3.2 litre petrol V6/six-speed DSG auto
Price: $65,490 (plus on-roads) | $76,290 (tested)
Fuel Economy claimed: 9.7 l/100km | tested: 11.2 l/100km

 

OVERVIEW

Volkswagen’s CC is, in essence, a four-door coupe version of the Passat sedan.

It certainly makes a statement on road; its swooping profile and heightened elegance is akin to the far more expensive Mercedes-Benz CLS and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe.

On that basis, the $65,490 starting price of the top-line V6 FSI tested here is something of a bargain, despite being $9000 more than the similarly specced Passat V6 FSI sedan.

The CC V6 is paired with Volkswagen’s six-speed DSG auto and 4Motion all-wheel drivetrain, and comes stocked with luxury and convenience features.

THE INTERIOR

Inside, the CC blends German austerity with exotic-looking tuck-and-roll leather. Its premium feel distances the CC from other Volkswagen offerings.

It’s a comfortable, very quiet and elegant interior.

Ours came with $10,800 worth of options: the $3300 driver assistance package, $2000 audio, $2900 park assist, $1900 Lugano 19-inch alloys, and $700 metallic paint. With these, it tipped the purchase price to a still reasonable $76,290.

The CC’s swooping roofline compromises rear seat headroom, but there’s enough for average height adults, and the boot remains huge at 532 litres, despite housing a full-size spare and rear differential below the floor.

 

ON THE ROAD

The V6 CC’s 5.6 second claimed 0-100km/h figure is impressive; it certainly feels swift on-road and has the dynamic chassis balance of a true grand tourer.

The ride of our tester however was choppy over sharp bumps, but re-fitting the standard 18-inch wheels would likely fix that.

It comes with a standard stop/start system and a combined fuel consumption of 9.7 l/100km - we managed 11.2 l/100km; reasonable for the AWD 3.6 litre 1657kg CC.

TMR VERDICT | OVERALL

Despite its mid-cycle refresh last year, the CC is starting to feel a bit dated.

It is a unique proposition at this price point though, and certainly deserving of a look if you’re in the market for a swift, stylish Euro saloon.
