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 4Motion all-wheel drive.
All versions come with a very full set of features, including power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; power front seats; and heated front seats, which are upholstered in vinyl ("leatherette" is the word, we believe). Bluetooth is standard on all CC sedans, as is a stereo with USB and auxiliary ports.
Four-cylinder CC sedans can also be fitted with Lux and Lux Plus packages that group Executive-grade features into an easy-order option. 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.
Executive models command a price much, much higher, in part because they bundle in many more features--with all the other equipment, the Executives also get heated mirrors; upgraded wheels; a panoramic sunroof; dual-zone climate control; and a rear sunshade.
Volkswagen's consolidated options into packages that put a dent in wallets, and take away some of the value perception of the base CC. An R-Line package adds fog lamps, silver-painted alloys, special valences, and tinted taillamps to Sport modes.
The navigation system in the CC was new last year, and it's much better than previous efforts. A top-level Dynaudio sound system is offered only on the Executive VR6 model.
