Full Version: Volkswagen CC
Dieselstation Car Forums > The Cool Wall > The Cool Wall > Uncool
The VW Passat CC (just called the VW CC in North America. CC stands for "Comfort Coupe") is a 4-door "coupe"-style vehicle like the Mercedes-Benz CLS that offers a more sporty and luxurious take on the Passat theme while using most of its mechanicals. The car is lower, longer, wider, and on a longer wheelbase than the normal sedan/wagon and uses all-new sheet metal.

European models get a variety of TFSI and TDI motors along with a top-dog 3.6 liter VR6 with 300 HP and 4motion all-wheel drive connected to a 6-speed DSG box (which is also available on most of the rest of the range). The US model gets the base 2.0 liter turbo from the standard car (200 HP, 207 ft.-lbs. of torque) with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed tiptronic while the VR6 produces 280 HP and 265 ft.-lbs. of torque, again connecting to 4motion and with a 6-speed tiptronic box (DSG in the Gold Coast Edition). The interior pulls heavily from the standard Passat but gets available two-tone leather on the sport seats and the rear goes from a 3-passenger bench to a sportier 2-person affair. Add on some chrome bits, a unique steering wheel, and different iPod connectivity and you've got a CC.

Mainly, though, it's just pretty. Prices start at $27,100 for the 2.0T.

This is the Gold Coast Edition:

Notice the frameless windows:
cool; gold coast edition is pimping.
Uncool. It's way too pretentious.
Dunno why but to me it seems the car is trying to be something it's not. I'm going with Uncool
Although on the face of it, it seems like a pretty cool car, I can't help but think of it as a wannabe CLS. Uncool.

If there's something cool about this I sure can't find it.
this is something i would expect from the more luxury type german companies, but something about this car is just kind of meh for me.
I saw one in the flesh today, and in no way is it a cut-price CLS. In fact, I'd say it's less attractive than the stock car, and borders on generic. It looks almost Japanese or Korean. The regular Passat has that solid, German look to it, whereas the CC just looks like a wannabe Mazda6. It's not the low-slung, 4-door coupe it's made out to be in the's just a regular family sedan.
Looks fast without being so- Uncool
