The new Volks Wangens CC has dependably been something else for Volkswagen. When it appeared in 2008, this breathtaking extravagance car was VW's second endeavor at a shockingly upscale item (the first was the Phaeton, which was a bit excessively upscale for the Volks Wagens identification). Present day Volkswagens have advanced into well-assembled, enjoyable to-drive yet elaborately progressive vehicles. Indeed, even the energetic GTI offers an upright body and sensible hatchback with the subcompact surfboard and fish stuff. 

The Volkswagen CC, nonetheless, is a stunning, smooth four-entryway that contends with Acura, Infinity, and even thumps at the entryway of its Audi cousins in a few ways. The idea of a $40,000 Volkswagen car may appear to be abnormal at in the first place, yet bear in mind that Hyundai are likewise handling premium autos at a comparable value point. I went through a week with the 2015 Volkswagen CC, to check whether Volkswagen's quality and driving elements are sufficient to rival the offerings of the "genuine" premium brands. I wasn't overstating about the CC emerging from whatever is left of the Volkswagen gang. This thrilling vehicle's obviously got a lot of VW styling DNA, because of a tight, full-width grille,  distinctive curved LED accents under the rounded headlamps , and solid level character lines on the flanks, yet its connected to a smooth outline motivated by the "roadster car" slant that exited Europe in the early thoughts.

Longer and lower than the Passat with which it shares a platform, the CC has a “dry clean only” look to it; this is the sort of car that looks at home in valet parking.

Though curvy, the style suggests luxury more than sport. Even the R-line, which adds a deeper airdam, projector foglamps, and side skirts, is a low-key design.

In 40 years, the CC will be used as an example of styling trends that were popular in this era, but without being remembered as the one that took them too far.

The interior environment backs up the initial impression, showing off a familiar steering wheel and center stack, but dressing things up with contoured leather on V-Tex seats and a choice of brushed aluminum or “engineered ebony” wood trim. I’m still not sure if “engineered ebony” means it’s faux wood or heavily-processed real timber.

Rear seat room is slightly tighter than average for a car of this size, and the CC is best used as a four-seater as fashion edges out function slightly in this arena. VW offers several interior environments in the CC, including handsome two-tones.

A navigation system, automatic climate control, and a backup camera are standard across the board. A much-welcome feature for humid-but-cool Michigan summers is the climate control’s ability to run the air conditioning compressor based on a humidity sensor, regardless of temperature setting. That’s the sort of subtle change that makes the cabin a comfortable place to be.

Heated and cooled seats, rear sunshades, a sunroof, VW’s Car-Net infotainment system, and a 600-watt Dynaudio sound system are available. Other coupe-sedans offer cavernous hatchbacks behind the rear seats, but the CC has a modest trunk with enough space for a week’s worth of luggage.So, it’s an upper-class car with a middle-class badge, or at least that’s the intent. It’s almost always the drive that determines the line between success and failure though. The seat of my pants says that the Volkswagen CC Volkswagen CC succeeds. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 200 horsepower. Don’t be fooled by the four-plug engine though, VW’s four is sewing-machine smooth thanks to direct fuel injection, and there’s enough power to keep things respectable. The four-cylinder CC can be had with a six-speed manual transmission, as well.

The uplevel engine is the fantastic 3.6-liter VR6 narrow-angle V-6, which ups the horsepower ante to 280 and allows the CC to step away from traffic lights with confidence. A six-speed automatic Tiptronic gearbox is standard with the VR6 engine. Volkswagen Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive is also available with the VR6. Long stretches of freeway are where this car’s at its best, and the VR6 engine is relaxed even at higher speeds. The CC isn’t designed to blur your vision or make you swoon with power, and it doesn’t try to do that.

The suspension is correspondingly downplayed yet fit. On the off chance that there's one thing VW does well, its driving motion, and the CC's four-wheel free suspension is an incredible case of this. Lightweight aluminum control arms enhance taking care of reaction, and the back suspension is on a commotion diminishing subframe to keep the inside calm. On metro Detroit's famously third-world street surfaces, the CC strikes a flawless parity of responsiveness and consistence, keeping up a decent hold on rough streets without being too hardened. A ton of game extravagance autos have a tendency to A lot of sport-luxury cars tend to get this wrong in Detroit (looking at you, Mercedes C400.

Electromechanical force controlling is standard. I would prefer not to say the drive is sterile, right now captivating than, say, the Hyundai Azera, however the CC does have a tendency to continue on ahead in a generally emotionless way. Regular driving assignments are dispatched with an indication of the easygoing entertainment that is frequently found in Acura and Infiniti items—yet just a clue. The CC is an agreeable driver without being a particularly lively one. 

The CC is additionally Volkswagen's techno car. Versatile headlights are standard, and additionally solidness and footing control. 

The CC is estimated right in the heart of the "close extravagance" market. There are four trim levels. The CC 2.0T Sport comes in at $32,685 with the four-chamber motor, six-pace manual transmission, route, and LED outside lighting. The game look R-Line 2.0T begins at $33,785, and the 2.0T Executive includes a standard six-velocity Tiptronic transmission,an upgraded navigation system with a larger touchscreen , and more power pleasantries. 

The lead of the line is the VR6 4MOTION Executive, which offers the VR6 motor and all-wheel drive and also interesting wheel sheated and cooled seats (and a driver’s massage seat), parking sensors, a rear sunshade, and the Dynaudio sound system. It’ll set you back $43,135.
