2013 Volkswagen CC Overview
The Volkswagen CC gets a redesign for the 2013 model year, with a new five-seat layout and upgraded exterior styling, bringing it more in line with its Jetta and Passat siblings.
A pair of engine options power the 2013 CC. A 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. A six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport modes is available on the CC Sport and standard on the CC Lux. A V-6 CC Lux is available, with a 280-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine and the aforementioned six-speed automatic. 4MOTION all-wheel drive is also available on the premium Executive Model, which features steering wheel-mounted Tiptronic paddle shifters.
CC models with the base engine deliver the best fuel economy, with 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with the manual transmission and 19/29 mpg city/highway with the automatic. The V-6 engine is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which drops to 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway when paired with the four-wheel drive on the CC Exec.
The CC comes equipped with V-Tex leatherette seating and standard heated front seats in all models, while the Lux and Exec editions offer leather seating surfaces. The Exec delivers premium luxury with active seat ventilation control and a driver’s massage function. Premium trims also include a three-position seat memory function. The standard audio system includes HD radio, SD memory card reader, and eight speakers. A navigation system with five-inch color touch-screen in available, and a premium navigation system comes with a larger 6.5-inch color touch-screen. Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming are standard.
Volkswagen designed the CC as a four-door coupe, combining the swept back style of a coupe with four-door practicality. Exterior amenities include standard bi-xenon high-intensity headlights with a low-speed corner-illuminating feature, LED taillights, and halogen reflector lens fog lights. Power-operated side mirrors feature integrated turn signals, and a memory set function is available on the premium trims. The Exec. model includes a park distance control system with front and rear proximity sensors. The power tinted-glass sunroof comes standard with the Lux and Exec models along with eighteen-inch alloy wheels.
The CC offers driver and front passenger front and side thorax airbags, and side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. Antilock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution and hydraulic brake assist provide responsive stopping, and the electronic stability control with anti-slip regulation, electronic differential lock and engine brake assist provide additional on-road peace of mind.
The 2013 Volkswagen CC captures coupe styling in a sporty and luxurious design that offers a comfortable ride while looking great on the road.
