VW CC 3.6 FSI V6 4motion Coupe (2013)
The latest CCCoupe (formerly Passat CC) features revised body styling and cosmetic changes.
And its stylish looks draw plenty of compliments. But attractions are more than skin-deep.
The petrol V6 is a strong and smooth performer, powering away from the line and right on through the rev range.
That said, the 2.0-litre Bluemotion 125TDi model (also with 350 Nm of torque) is cheaper, more fuel frugal and doesn’t disappoint. The V6 just goes harder.
Few buyers of this luxury four-door coupe are likely to be disappointed with its dynamic abilities, a pleasing blend of firm, composed ride and sophisticated handling. It can entertain, but ultimately there are sharper tools available.
Our test car included a range of options. The new driver assistance package ($3300) includes a lane departure warning system that gently steers the car back into its lane and, if necessary, warns the driver if a monitoring camera detects it straying from the lane. A blind spot monitoring system, active cruise control and an auto brake function, to help prevent rear end collisions, are part of the package, too.
VW’s automatic parking system ($900) makes easy work of reverse or parallel parks, while the active climate seats ($750) warm or cool the front seats as desired and massage the driver’s back – just the thing in traffic jams or on longer treks.
