There was a time when “Passat” was German for “budget-Audi.” Even though the A4 and Passat parted ways in 2005, the Passat’s interior and price tag were more premium than mid-market shoppers were looking for. To hit VW’s North American yearly sales goal of 800,o000, the European Passat (B6) was replaced with a model designed specifically for American tastes. This means a lower price tag, less “premium” interior, and larger dimensions. If your heart pines for a “real” Passat, look no further than the 2013 Volkswagen CC. If it looks familiar, it should. The CC is none other than the artist car formerly known as Prince Passat CC with a nose job. VW advertises the CC as “the most affordable four-door coupé” in the US. All you need to know is: Euro lovers, this is your Passat.

Exterior

The CC follows the four-door coupé formula pioneered by Mercedes: lower the roof, remove the window sashes and raise the price. Even though “coupé” means two doors and the CC has a pair too many, the silhouette is undeniably elegant. For 2013 the CC’s front was replaced with a more aggressive three-bar chrome schnoz and standard HID headlamps. Out back are new tail lamps that incorporate “CC” shapes into the LED clusters. Unlike many mid-cycle refreshes, the rhinoplasty actually jives with the rest of the car.

Our European cousins see the CC as a styling exercise between the Passat and the Phaeton in both price and size. However, the Phaeton is extinct in America turning the CC into VW flagship sedan on our shores. This presents a problem that doesn’t exist in Europe: our Passat is larger, and being sold to an audience that equates size with status. As a result you wouldn’t automatically assume the CC is $10,000 more expensive, (especially if you equate size with value) until you get inside.

Interior

Camcord clientèle value expansive, not expensive cabins.  The CC on the other hand plays further up the food chain. In this light, the CC’s “Euro Passat” squishy dash bits are right at home. Our base-model tester had leatherette seats, faux-aluminum trim and a black-on-black-on-black color scheme. A quick trip to the local dealer proved the no-cost ivory/black and ivory/brown combinations look 10 times better in person than the all-black theme.  If you’ve been frightened away by the pleather on less expensive VWs, the CC’s faux-cow is a different “animal” and was surprisingly convincing.

Because VW is on a mission to streamline their inventory, your interior “goodie quotient” is tied to your trim level and engine choice. This means there are but five different configurations (excluding interior and exterior color choices): Sport, Sport Plus, Lux, V6 Lux and VR6 Executive. (No, that’s not a typo it is “V6″ and “VR6″ for some reason.) The $30,610 Sport model starts with dual-zone climate control and standard 12-way power seats. Sport Plus ($32,850) adds a nav system, DSG transmission and some 18-inch wheels, Lux ($35,335) piles on a sunroof, ambient lighting and real aluminum trim. Jumping up to the V6 Lux($37,730) gets the shopper real-cow, a backup cam, memory seats and a bigger nav screen. The top-of-the-line VR6 Executive ($41,420) tacks on AWD, parking sensors, a power rear sunshade and front seats that heat, cool and massage. With the CC there are no options per se, just dealer sold accessories.

The front thrones are comfortable for long trips and were easily adjusted for my average frame but with the sexy roof-line comes limited headroom. If you’re a taller passenger and prefer your seats and tray tables in the upright and locked position, you may need to look elsewhere. The rear seats present more of a headroom challenge coupled with ingress and egress limited by the sloped door openings. While a center rear seat is now standard, (bringing the capacity up to 5) it was apparently designed for Lilliputians as I was unable to sit in it without cocking my head to the side.

Infotainment

VW’s infotainment systems have been behind the curve for the near luxury market and the CC is no exception. The standard five-inch touchscreen system is a basic unit with a CD player, AM/FM/HD/Sirius radio and iDevice integration. Strangely absent from all models is a USB plug for non-Apple devices. Bluetooth audio streaming (and speakerphone) is standard and works very well however. As with most entries in this segment, you cannot voice-command your iDevice, if you want that, look to Lincoln’s SYNC. If you want snazzy graphics, look to BMW.

Sport Plus and Lux models get VW’s low-end navigation system which uses the same 5-inch LCD as the base model. The screen is low resolution and the processor is slow, but it gets the job done. Eventually. How low is the resolution? 400 x 200 pixels, or about the same as a cheap computer from 1981.

Six-cylinder CC models come standard with VW’s snappier (and snazzier) 6.5-inch navigation system. In addition to improved navigation features, this unit adds 25GB of music storage. Stepping up to the “Executive” CC buys you a color LCD between the speedo and tach, and a 600-watt, 10-speaker Dynaudio system. Sound quality on the base speakers is very good for this segment and the Dynaudio system is excellent with well-balanced audio and volume levels loud enough to satisfy most customers.

Drivetrain

Not being related to the US Passat has advantages, the 2.5L inline-5 was left in Chattanooga. Instead, the CC uses VW’s 200HP/207lb-ft 2.0L turbo four cylinder, an improvement of 30HP and 30lb-ft over the 2.5L. While a 15% power bump may not sound like much, the 2.0L’s flat torque curve and choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG (instead of the Passat’s slushbox) allow the CC to scoot to 60 a whopping 2.7 seconds faster (6.2 vs 8.9). Over 625 miles with the manual CC, we averaged 28.6 MPG despite the EPA ratings of 21 city / 31 highway. We were unable to test a CC with the DSG for any length of time but the EPA claims it will drop your numbers to 19/29 MPG.

As you would assume, the V6 Lux and VR6 4MOTION Executive CCs get VW’s 3.6L VR6 engine. If you’re not familiar with VW’s VR engines, they are a hybrid crossing a traditional “V” engine with a single head like an inline engine. The result is an engine that’s longer than a V6 but shorter than an I6 and uses only two cams total. This 10.6-degree “V” engine is good for 280HP and 265lb-ft of torque. For reasons only VW can explain, the only transmission is an Aisin 6-speed aut0 with or without a Haldex based all-wheel-drive system.

The extra 80HP and 58lb-ft of twist come at the expense of 261lbs in extra mass, all of which is in the nose. Adding AWD increases the weight penalty by another 226lbs so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the AWD CC is not much faster to 60 than the 2.0T. As you would assume, fuel economy drops to 18/27 MPG for the FWD VR6 and 17/25 MPG for the AWD VR6.

Drive

The CC’s electric power steering, VW’s typical rubbery shifter feel and soft springs combine to make the CC feel like a large, comfy highway cruiser. On the other hand, the 235-width rubber, light 3,400lb curb weight and German DNA do an admirable job of making the CC 2.0T stable and surprisingly grippy in the bends. If you care more about feel than outright power, the 2.0T is an excellent package due as much to the lighter front end as the well-matched ratios in the manual transmission. Start sea-sawing the wheel and the soft suspension if obvious, but in normal to moderately aggressive driving, the 2.0T will make you grin more often than the VR6

Compared to the Buick GS, the turbo CC is noticeably down on power but feels far more refined without loosing much in the “balls-out handling” category. The VR6 FWD CC on the other hand feels far more likely to plow into the underbrush when it encounters a corner thanks to that extra weight up front. The experience is the same in a V6 Avalon or MKZ. While you can opt for 4MOTION to tame some of the  FWD handling tendencies, it adds even more weight without any increase in the car’s contact patches. Many CC shoppers will be former Passat owners or shoppers brought in by the Passat’s lower starting price and increased showroom traffic. These shoppers will find a car that feels practically glued to the road compared to the Passat sitting next to it, despite the strong family resemblance.

Our Facebook fans wanted to know how the CC stacks up against the Audi A7. Since I can’t imagine too many shoppers actually cross-shopping these two I will keep this short. The CC’s main selling point is the $20,000 lower cost of entry. Yes the A7 has more oomph from a supercharged V6, two extra speeds in its gearbox, a longer warranty and a snazzier interior. The A7′s hatchback design was very handy for carrying large cargo last time we had it, but aside from the trunk the A7 is honestly no more comfortable inside than the CC.

The Passat CC used to make me scratch my head. Why would I want a Passat with less room, fewer seats and a steeper price tag? There just didn’t seem to be a good reason. By taking the America Passat in a different direction, VW seems to have solved both the Passat’s sales problem and give the CC a reason to exist.

    I really like the look of thIs car, it was on my short list while car shopping recently. I wound up going with a Regal GS instead since the actual cost of ownership provided a better value. Also, the GS is a sharper looking car IMO since the new nose on the CC is a step backwards style-wise. Also VW reliability is a bit sketchy.

      Owned one for two years so far- r line, 6 speed 2.0t

      Highs- Beautiful to look at, nice fit and finish, great highway cruiser
      Lows- fragile, low torque, poor visibility.

      I am a sucker for love and looks always get me.. So when I ordered my cc I thought this is going to be everlasting.
      At first I thought the massive A,B and C pillars were just annoying.. The fact is you cant see shit out the rear.. Which is why vw added the rear cam despite this annoyance I still loved her.
      Moving on to the drive people who say she is peppy are just wrong. Under boost she does fine but the torque curve is far from flat.. More like a two stroke without the ” holy shit” snap.. Frankly, off boost and the engine falls into a crater..
      Hint VW … Weight the flywheel and map the a4 profile. That should help
      but will not solve the on off throttle slack… If you dont know this car has a noticeable float at high speed during throttle position changes. Approach 85, shift and back on throttle.
      Lastly. Its fragile. I treat my cars well and don’t ride peoples asses.. Somehow ive gone through 3 windshields (noticeably thin glass) it prone to cracking.
      Some odds and ends break here and there as well.
      Would I buy another vw.. Yes. CC no.

    A good review, Alex … but that auto white balance setting on the camera can get troublesome. Unless the CC visited a paint shop between photos 2 and 3! (I suspect the blue sky in the third photo caused the camera to reduce the amount of blue in the image. Fixed white balance is the best option for consistent photos.)

      I’m glad I’m not the only (aspiring, in my case) shutterbug: I kinda noticed that too. It could just be the clouds kept mucking with the light. I know I eventually get “fuck it we’ll do it in photoshop” attitude when clouds keep changing your white balance every five minutes.

      White balance with refrigerator white cars is a tricky tricky business. The camera got all confused and our processing software wasn’t much better. My apologies on that.

    I test drove one a few weeks ago and found it to be far more enjoyable than I thought it would be. What really struck me the most is just how quiet and comfortable the CC was. I really wish VW would update some of the packaging and options, but at this point in the game I suppose we have to wait until the CC’s replacement in a few years.

    “‘coupé’ means two doors”

    Coupé comes from the French “couper”, which means “to cut”. No one can argue the CC has a chopped roof compared to its more upright Tennessean cousin.

    If you want to say “two doors”, you’re lookin’ for “deux portes.”

      CC stands for “Comfort Coupé”. Reminds me of blues master Howlin’ Wolf’s “Built for Comfort, not for Speed”:

      Some folks are built like this
      Some folks are built like that
      But the way I’m built
      Now, don’t you call me fat

      ‘Cause I’m-a built for comfort
      I ain’t a-built for speed
      But I got ev’rything

    I’ve got a 2010 CC with the VR6 & 4Motion, 27,000 miles and NO ISSUES to report. Don’t let the sticker price scare you – my CC was heavily discounted. It is an excellent freeway cruiser, decent in the twisities and 8/10ths the performance of my ’07 S4. The CC is just awesome in the white stuff and I frequently average 27 mpg during my weekly commute of 64 miles a day consisting half of rural back roads (averaging 45 MPH) and the other half highway with lots of stop and go. It is indeed a big thumbs up and for anyone in the market for a near luxury 4 door, it is worth checking out.

      My dad has a 2010 FWD 170TDI manual but with the adaptive suspension, 55-56k miles on it. Zero issues also. Seems solidly built, delivers 6liters/100km or about 40mpg.

      IIHS is trying to come up with new tests to keep themselves relevant. But if you read the detailed test results, neither the CC nor the other cars really did all that badly on a test that they had never seen before.

    How is rear headroom?

  • avatar
    Marko

    I really like the CC’s styling, and the lease offers seem quite competitive, too. I was already impressed with the regular Passat’s ride/handling balance and “feel” – test driving a CC (and GLI) is too tempting…

    What is easier to live with, the GLI or CC?

    • 0 avatar
      Speed Spaniel

      Try getting in and out of each one. I suspect the CC is lower to the ground than the GLI. That’s one of the few complaints I have – your ass sits too low to the road. Anyone with back issues should not get this car.

    Nice enough car, but I’d take an S60 or lightly-optioned 328i over this any day of the week.

    Sundowner

    I had a 2008 Passat, which is as suro spec as this car and the interior is pretty much identical. They’re good cars, from my experience, and the 2.0T/stick drivetrain is actually more fun in the lighter Passat than it is in the heavier Audi A4, despie the A4 engine’s torque advantage.

    I seriously considered buying a CC to replace my passat, but the rear headroom was an annoyance and the way the windows partially open automatically to let you open the doors scared me for future maintenace concerns. I can live with a non-functional power window, I can’t live with nonfunctional doors.

    At the end the bizzare center console in the backseat was a dealbreaker. Problem with this car is that if you don’t have rear bench, you can’t put even a mediuim sized dog back there (problem), and if you can’t put a backwards facing child seat dead between the front seats, then either the driver or the front passenger have to sut with their seats pushed all the way up to the dash (real problem). I’m glad to see that they fixed that nonsense.

    Why does VW US make you guys live with those cheap ass ugly cupholders? Is it payback for the war or something?

    There’s an input for USB, the place ypu plug in your iWhatnot is called media port, you can change the lead from iMuck to USB, cables are available from stealership or ebay.
    I might have missed something but can you get the adaptive suspension in the US?
    And lastly, in “my” market the CC costs less then a similarly equipped sedan as Xenons, Adaptive cruise control, DCC and some other stuff is included in the base price for the CC and not the Passat.

      Speed Spaniel

      No adaptive suspension in the US. Plus we get the slightly detuned version of the VR6. It makes 300 hp overseas and only 280 here. Americans LOVE cupholders. For some reason we feel compelled to drink and drive. Guilty as charged as I appreciate a cup of joe on my way to work in the morning. You would be amazed at the number of coffee shops here in the US that sell it to go and even have drive thrus. Ugh – I know, American coffee!! ; )

        The euro spec passat gets cup holders too, the are hidden under a jalousie in the center console http://www.oemplus.com/cup-holder-euro-p-902.html but maybe the cups are smaller for the Eurospec.
        The divide in coffee culture between the US and Europe is pretty well illustrated by the McDrive coffee incident, the case made some sense in the US, the coffee was to hot, in most of Europe we would consider suing you if the coffee wasn’t hot enough to burn you.

        The most puzzling thing, apart from the temperature, with US coffee is the flavoring, why on goods green earth would I like coffee that tastes something besides coffee. Cinnamon? No, COFFEE!

        th009

        Remember that the 300 hp is a DIN rating, equivalent to 295 hp SAE. The rest of the detuning may be defensive due to US fuel quality.

        Speed Spaniel,

        I’ve been thinking and researching hard for the CC VR6 4motion. I cannot find anything with conclusive information relating to the Adaptive Cruise Control. Does yours have it? I’m a buyer if it does.

    How does this compare to an Audi A4 Quattro with stick? It seems like for only $2k you get the Audi nameplate, quite a bit more torque, and Quattro. Wouldn’t that be a better package?

      Alex L. Dykes

      I would probably take an A4, but the car is quite a bit smaller.

      Speed Spaniel

      I had an ’07 S4 and looked at the newer generation A4 before buying a CC. Trust me when I say the current A4 is over bloated junk compared to the CC. The standard seats in the A4 suck, the turbo 4 is a wheezer and the workmanship and plastic dash leave a lot to be desired. Standard wood trim in the CC (VR6 4 motion) and an $500 option in the A4 (really!?). Don’t forget VW has free maintenance and Audi doesn’t. Getting the VW over the Audi was a no brainer. Even the Audi salesperson said, “I don’t blame you, it is a better car.”

        hreardon

        Having a lot of seat time in base A4 2.0T Quattro + Automatics, I can tell you that there is just about nothing interesting about that specific trim. It’s not especially quiet, it IS a comfortable ride, but the seats are indeed horrible. I would echo Jeremy Clarkson’s comment that base A4s are driven by cement salesmen.

        It’s not a bad car by any stretch – it’s just not particularly interesting, either. As far as I’m concerned, until you move into at least an A4 2.0T S-Line with the sport package, and ideally the S4, it’s a pretty bland-tastic vehicle. I wouldn’t call the 2.0T a wheezer (it’s almost the same as in the CC, but the A4 has valvelift for more torque), it’s a great powerplant, but I will agree that it’s time to bump up the ponies. That may actually be in the works considering the ’13 Q5 is getting the 3rd generation 2.0T @ 225hp. No word on the A4, but I imagine that will be a running change over the ’13 model year.

        I actually found the ’13 CC 2.0T 6-speed to be a lot more engaging than a base A4 and while I’m not cross-shopping at the moment, I would take the CC over the A4 in a heartbeat unless all wheel drive were a requirement, in which case I’d get the A4.

    • 0 avatar
      th009

      Right … a $2000 difference to start. If you compare auto to auto, it’s $3300. Metallic paint, sunshade and wood trim will add another $1300 to the A4 if you want those options.

      I’ll disagree with Speed Spaniel on the A4 interior quality, but otherwise I do agree that the CC is the better deal. But in the end, as with any car, drive both to make sure you get something that YOU like.

      • 0 avatar
        hreardon

        Agreed. The A4 has a perfectly acceptable, if a bit dated looking, interior. The problem is that the A4 interior dates to the design introduced with the 2005 A6, then cycled into the new MLB A4 in 2009. It’s a good design, but compared to the new Audi dashes in the A6, A7, A8 and the new MQB A3, the A4 looks outright dated and olde-timey.

        It’s pretty clear that Audi put its engineering resources and budget into the current A4s significantly improved chassis, ride and handling. Absolutely no complaints there, but the rest of the package needs a more significant updating that we’ll need to wait for the B9 A4 to address in 2-3 years time.

      If extra power is your main concern, you can get a good tune (APR, Unitronic, Revo and GIAC are big names) that costs < $2000 for the 2.0T . Stage 1 tune is usually around $500 and gives a noticeably eager engine and you can keep adding hardware and more aggressive software for different "stages" of tuning.

      If nameplate is a concern, you are on your own. I personally do not care for what people think, but I do know how brand names and marketing toy with peoples' heads.

    It’s a bit of a bummer the Passat (and Jetta) adopted a more mundane fascia, because the rest of the body is pretty attractive for this class. It used to look surprisingly upscale, but now seems a tad too pedestrian for what it’s trying to be.

      I like the new, edited Volkswagen family fascia. You know what I used to call the blinged-out fascia of the MkV Jetta and its contemporaries in the Volkswagen lineup? “Chrome drool.”

    Back in 2004 at our Cincinnati Auto Show, we looked at the Mercedes version of the 4 door coupe concept. I liked the style, but I was having serious back issues at the time and I couldn’t even get in the car – front or back. Wifey had to give me a review of how it felt. About all I could do was wish for a ride in a step-van so I could just stand up, but our CR-V did OK!

    I like these, too, and talking with my car-hoarding next-door neighbor, he wants one of these. He recently picked up his first “foreign” vehicle at auction – a Sonata.

    As some may have heard, my then new 2006 Passat was essentially this vehicle, with the 2.0T motor.

    It was an okay vehicle, with decent road dynamics, but I had to terminate it prematurely due to the fact that it drank synthetic oil at a rate not less than 1 quart each 800 to 1,000 miles, which I found entirely unacceptable, but which the dealer and VW Corporate maintained was “within spec.”

    Even the tech who first worked on the car admitted it was absolutely not supposed to consume anywhere near that amount of oil when I pulled him aside, and that it was not uncommon to see.

    That car was the final straw for me in terms of VW.

    My mom had a 94 Passat wagon with a VR6. The last real Passat. So much legroom. So much power. Great handling. Amazing build quality. Various electrical gremlins felled it, or we’d still have it (2010 Mazdaspeed3 now…).

    By the way, while the review didn’t mention it, unless you live in a state with very good roads, the CC (which is the same car as my ’06 Passat 2.0T was) does not have what I would deem a smooth ride nor does the interior remain quiet over the rough stuff, IMO.

    • 0 avatar
      Speed Spaniel

      Here in MA the roads are pretty bad. I find the ride to be very smooth compared to my ’07 S4. Had my prior car been a Buick, I could see how the CC would be perceived as having a non-smooth ride. Driving over unpaved gravel roads every day (I live in the boonies), I find the interior to be very quiet. Maybe the sound insulation is beefed up in the higher trim levels?

      I don’t know, the roads up here in N. CA are fairly awful. The CC is a fair bit quieter than the B6 Passat on the road.

    The drummer in one of my bands has one of these. His drums don’t really fit inside, which is a drag. Aside from that, the car feels overwrought from the driver’s seat. Not in an appearance sense, but in a feel sense. Prefer the GLI or GTI or the old school Passat Baruth wrote about recently for an intuitive, driver-centric feel. That said, it has impressive build quality (at least apparently does; don’t know how it will hold up) and is very unique and striking looking, inside and out.

    itanibro

    This is a timely review as I am in the market for a new CC Lux or a 328i. I have driven both and like both – tough to make a decision.

    The CC is definitely more quiet on the road, and is quite refined. But the BMW has that classic sportish-tuned, tight as hell (albeit louder) ride. A bit softer than in years past (currently have an ’07 325i), but still on the firmer side.

    The DSG gets my vote over BMW’s tranny. Maybe I’m used to the tranny in my ’07, but the DSG seems well mated to the 4cyl in the CC. Fast shifts!

    But, at 37K – I want leather. What’s up with VW and the faux stuff…at 37K? The leather in the BMW is friggin fantastic – clear winner here. I will say though, the faux seats in the VW are very nice…but as a rule of thumb I want leather at close to 40K.

    Anyway – those are my thoughts. I”m not jumping into this decision just yet. It would be interesting hearing your opinions.

    Cheers. Al

    The bummer is that they dropped 4Motion from the US Passat, so now the only VW sedan you can get 4Motion in is this. And in my opinion it’s too expensive…

    I am actually a proud owner of a 2012 CC Comfort Coupé but I am so enlightened by it’s history with Hitler. Very interesting story thank you for sharing, and thanks for youre review of the vehicle itself.

    I own a 2013 CC Sport. Love the bi-zenon and DRL LED lights. The changes to the rear end are nice. The engine and interior seems identical to previous years. However, the redesigned front end looks like a regular Passat and is extremely disappointing. I should have looked for a 2012 CC instead. I previously owned a 2009 CC Sport — beautiful car.

    For the bad back set, the VR6 4Motion has a massage seat. I haven’t found anyone else with that until $65k.
