2014 Volkswagen CC Overview
- Stylish sedan with seating for five
- More upscale than the Passat
- Standard navigation system with rearview camera
The 2014 Volkswagen CC is a sleek, upscale sedan chock full of creature comforts and helpful technology.
Changes for 2014 include the introduction of a new trim leve, the 2.0T Executive, and a shuffling around of some options. The CC rides on 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels. LED daytime running lights give the front a sharper visual signature, flanking the gridded front grille. Down the sides of the car, the beltline raises as it drifts towards the rear which makes the CC appear to be leaning forward, even when standing still. Rain-sensing windshield wipers and dual exhaust tips also come standard.
Under the hood, there are two engine options. Standard is a 200-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. If you want more power a 280-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is also available. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional for those who live in areas with inclement weather. Fuel economy estimates top out at 22/32 mpg city/highway.
Inside, the CC offers a well-appointed cabin that we would classify as “near-luxury” with good fit and finish and materials. The standard features list reads more like a laundry list, with air conditioning, powered/heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, HD radio, USB port, and a navigation system all coming on every CC model. Also available are ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, massaging driver’s seat, and a power rear sunshade.
The 2014 CC got a four star overall rating (out of five) from the NHTSA for its performance in crash testing. Standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system. For safer maneuvering in tight spaces, front and rear parking sensors are also available.
