The 2010 CC embodies the idea that function and form can successfully exist together in a car’s design without sacrificing on practicality.

With a starting price of $27,760, and available in four trim levels, the CC forges the comfort and capability of a sedan with the styling and driving experience that are normally only reserved for a coupe.

From the front, the CC immediately commands attention with its sleek, low stance. The wide chrome grille, slit-like headlight housings (Bi-Xenon™ High Intensity Gas-discharged headlamps are standard on VR6 models), and reflector lens foglights add an aggressive element to the sedan’s overall appearance.

The angle of the long hood is replicated through the CC’s profile by way of a accent line starting on the front fender and moving just above the door handles as it finishes in the tail light lens. A low-slung roofline includes a panoramic, power sunroof with tinted glass (standard on all models excluding the Sport) before sloping down into the short rear decklid. Jeweled tail light lenses continue the curvaceous detailing of the CC, and stand above a thin, chrome bumper accent that runs back along the lower half of the doors. Simple, chrome badges just below the tail lights mark the CC name and appropriate engine designation.

Finishing touches are complements of 17-inch “Phoenix” / “Spa” alloy wheels and all-season performance tires for the Sport and Luxury packages

respectively, or 18-inch “Interlagos” / “Daytona” alloy wheels with summer performance tires on the VR6 Sport and 4MOTION models.

Inside every 2010 CC awaits a blend of luxurious materials, rich textures, and intuitive controls. The driver and all three passengers are welcomed with sport seats that sit comfortably low for a more relaxed experience, yet are ergonomically bolstered for added support. They can be covered in V-Tex or leather, and are available in both solid and two-tone color schemes.

The front seats are heated, with 12-way, power adjustment and four-way, power lumbar support on all trim levels; the Luxury, VR6 Sport, and VR6 4MOTION add a convenient, three-position memory function for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors. The CC’s rear seats are split by a center roll-top console for holding drinks or accessing an emergency medical kit, and can be folded down to allow for added cargo space.

Up front, a leather-wrapped three spoke steering wheel offers comfortable control and has integrated controls for the CC’s multimedia system. The gauges are surrounded by chrome trim, which extends throughout the CC Sport, while the CC Luxury carries full brushed aluminum ornamentation, and the two VR6 models step up to Vavona wood trim.

All models have CLIMATIC™ air-conditioning with a pollen filter (single-zone on the Sport, and dual-zone for all others), and a comprehensive AM/FM/CD stereo system with MP3 CD readability, an in-dash, six-disc changer, an auxiliary input for connecting portable audio players, Bluetooth™ mobile phone connectivity, and SIRIUS Satellite Radio access with six months of complimentary service. Eight speakers are standard in the Sport and Luxury models, but the Dynaudio Premium Sound System – an option with the Luxury package, and standard on VR6 models – has ten high-end speakers, a 600 Watt amplifier, and Digital Sound Processor (DSP) technology. A special Media Device Interface with iPod® cable can be added to all CC models, allowing playback and control of USB-based devices or drives.

The CC Luxury and VR6 variants can be optioned with Volkswagen’s premium navigation system that has a 6.5” high resolution touch-screen display,

an integrated 30GB hard drive (10GB for navigation, 20GB for audio), WMA / MP3 audio CD playback, DVD playback, an SD memory card slot, an auxiliary input connection, and three months of complimentary Sirius Traffic programming.

Engine and Transmission

Two engine options are available to power the CC wherever its driver commands: The 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder gasoline engine, or the 3.6-liter narrow angle V6 gasoline engine. The 2.0T in the CC Sport and Luxury models is sporty when called upon, but equally efficient, and combines four valves per cylinder, variable timing, dual overhead camshafts, and maintenance-free hydraulic lifters. Electronic TSI direct fuel injection and drive-by-wire throttle control let the engine create 200 horsepower at 5,100 rpm, and 207 lbs.-ft. of torque between 1,800 and 5,000 rpm, but also fuel economy.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the CC Sport, and nets EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city, and 31 mpg on the highway, as well as a 6.9 second sprint from zero to 60 mph. Optional for the Sport, and standard on the CC Luxury, is Volkswagen’s Direct Shift Gearbox® (DSG®) six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® control. The DSG carries an automated dual-clutch system to engage and disengage gears without the need for a driver-activated clutch pedal. A special computer controls the clutches and shifting, for faster and smoother gearshifts than can be had with a traditional automatic or manual transmission. When the gearshift lever is moved into the Tiptronic position, the driver can control the gear changes by either tapping the gearshift lever up or down, or by pressing the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles

The 2.0T engine mated to the DSG transmission can take the CC from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds, while achieving EPA-estimated fuel economy returns of 22 mpg for city driving, and 31 mpg in highway driving.

The compact yet powerful V6 engine, which is standard with both the VR6 Sport and VR6 4MOTION trim levels, is outfitted with 24 valves, dual overhead camshafts, variable valve timing and intake lengths, and direct fuel injection. All considered, the engine produces 280 total horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 265 lbs.-ft. of torque at only 2,750 rpm. With the V6 connected to a six-speed

automatic transmission with Tiptronic control, the 2010 CC is ready to reach 60 mph from a standstill in just 6.6 seconds, while managing 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway fuel economy, as estimated by the EPA.

Chassis and Suspension

Hidden beneath the 2010 CC’s modern looks and plush interior, is a thoroughly-tested sports suspension that can transform most any trip into something more exciting. All models carry a pair of independent MacPherson struts and a complementary stabilizer bar at the front to ensure agility and smooth-ride comfort traveling through the turns. A fully-independent rear suspension is comprised of a four-link arrangement that carries a combination of telescoping shocks, coil springs, and a rear anti-roll bar for. The CC’s top VR6 trim level adds Volkswagen’s comprehensive 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

An electro-mechanical, power rack-and-pinion steering system with variable speed assistance and active return helps ensure driver confidence when the CC is taking turns at any speed. Braking is controlled by the CC’s Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with a special wiping feature that keeps the rotors dry and clean for maximum safety. The Sport and Luxury CC models are fitted with 312 mm vented rotors up front, and solid 286 mm for the rear, while the VR6 Sport and 4MOTION trim levels move up 345 mm vented rotors for the front and 310 mm solid rotors at the back.

Active and Passive Safety

Supporting every facet of the CC’s stylish design is a collection of over 45 active and passive safety features that are a part of Volkswagen’s standard Prevent and Preserve Safety System. Eight multistage airbags, including dual front, dual thorax, and dual side curtain arrangements for the front occupants, and dual side curtain airbags for the two rear passengers, come standard with all CC models. Owners can also opt to add rear side thorax airbag protection. The three-point safety belts in all four seating positions (two front, two rear) include belt-force limiters all around, and belt tensioners up front. For younger occupants, the CC also includes Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren

(LATCH) in the rear seats to make adding a child car seat much simpler. A number of aids and enhancements work seamlessly with the CC’s drivetrain and suspension to help get the car and its occupants to whatever destination safely, including Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Engine Braking Assist (EBA) and Electronic Stability Program® (ESP®).

Volkswagen’s choice to include ESP standard on the CC and all other 2010 Volkswagens, comes ahead of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mandate that by the 2012 model year, all vehicles produced will need to include some form of Electronic Stability Control (ESC). According to NHTSA, having ESC in a vehicle results in 35 percent fewer single-vehicle crashes and 30 percent fewer single-vehicle fatalities in passenger cars. Volkswagen’s ESP compares the driver’s intended course with the vehicle’s actual direction. If a discrepancy is detected, ESP automatically brakes individual wheels and/or reduces engine power to help maintain directional control.


For added convenience and assurance, the 2010 CC includes 24-hour Roadside Assistance for three years or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first), plus the following new vehicle warranties as standard:

Five-year / 60,000 mile (whichever occurs first) Powertrain Limited Warranty

Three-year / 36,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty, with wear and tear items and adjustments.

12-year unlimited distance Limited Warranty against corrosion perforation

The CC and the rest of the 2010 Volkswagen model line are a part of the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. Under this program, all of the cars’ scheduled maintenance, as described in their maintenance booklets, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty – three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. All current Volkswagens, including the CC, also use synthetic oil, which, when combined with state-of-the-art German engineering, eliminates the need for a 5,000 mile oil change. This ultimately allows for all current Volkswagen owners to driver farther between scheduled oil changes.
