Expert Quotes:

2012 Volkswagen CC: 21 mpg city, 31 highway (manual); 22/32 mpg (automatic); 17/25 mpg (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



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

At an EPA-rated 22 mpg city, 32 highway with the automatic transmission and four-cylinder, the CC has some pretty impressive fuel economy numbers for such a large car. Like many of its competitors, the CC actually does better with the automatic than with its standard manual transmission, which earns an EPA rating of 21/31 mpg.

Opting into the V-6 engine, though, drops the CC's fuel economy to lackluster levels. With the required 4Motion all-wheel drive, the V-6 CC is rated by the EPA at 17/25 mpg.

 

 

Conclusion

The four-cylinder VW CC is a good, green choice--the V-6, not so much.

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.
