Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 31 highway (manual); 22/32 (automatic); 17/25 (VR6 4Motion)
U.S. EPA

In our hands, the CC returned a healthy 25 mpg in mixed driving.
Car and Driver

The V-6 slurped fuel, by VW standards, and also felt a bit sluggish.
USA Today



At an EPA-rated 22 mpg city, 32 highway with the automatic transmission and four-cylinder, the 2011 Volkswagen CC has some pretty impressive fuel economy numbers for such a large car. However as soon as you step up to the V-6 engine (which includes 4Motion all-wheel drive), the CC gets a lackluster 17/25.

The CC four-cylinder isn't class-leading, but it's mileage is about the same as four-cylinder models of other engaging sedans such as the Mazda6 and Nissan Altima.

Next year Volkswagen will introduce a new Passat, which will be considerably greener, as most of the lineup will be powered by a TDI diesel four-cylinder allowing a highway rating of more than 40 mpg.

Conclusion

For such a large sedan, the Volkswagen CC is a reasonably green choice—provided you get it in four-cylinder form.

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.
