The cabin electronics are beset by odd problems, such as difficulty copying music to the car's hard drive and a navigation system that can be hard to use.
CNET


Volkswagen hasn't skimped on features in the CC sedans; all of them, even the base Sport, come very well-equipped. A single-zone automatic climate control system, heated leatherette power seats, and an eight-speaker premium sound system with CD changer are all on the standard-equipment list, while top Executive VR6 4Motion models, priced about $12,000 higher, get dual-zone climate control, the Panorama sunroof, a rear sunshade, bi-xenon headlamps, a parking aid, heated mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers, along with the upgraded wheels.

The CC is available in Sport, Lux, and Executive models, with Sport and Lux models getting the four-cylinder engine and the Executive upgrading to the VR6 and 4Motionn all-wheel drive.

In between, options have been consolidated down to just a few packaged. There's the R-Line Package just above the Sport, adding fog lamps, silver-painted alloys, special valences, and tinted taillamps. Also, Lux and Lux Plus models add Executive-level features to the four-cylinder platform. Dual-zone climate control, brushed aluminum trim, and a navigation system are included in the Lux, and the Lux Plus adds a rearview camera, footwell lighting, and Vavona wood trim, plus a panoramic sunroof. At the top, the Lux Limited package adds bi-xenon headlamps and alloy wheels.

Bluetooth connectivity is now standard on all models, along with a new sound system that includes an auxiliary input and iPod connectivity. The navigation system in the CC is an all-new unit this year, while the top Dynaudio sound system is now only offered on the top Executive VR6.

Conclusion

The base 2011 Volkswagen CC Sport is a strong value, but VW wraps some popular options into models/packages costing thousands more.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
