STYLING | 9 out of 10
an attractive car and a welcome divergence for VW design
it looks terrific inside and out, with styling that manages—in an ever-so-Germanic way—to look swoopy and purposeful at the same time
qualifies as art not because of its mechanicals—they come courtesy of the fine Passat—but because of its sublime design
Car and Driver
Other than its slinky exterior styling, the VW CC's cabin is arguably its most appealing attribute
There is a lot of the CLS throughout the Passat CC.
Spend a lot of money and you'll find Audi's A7, Mercedes' CLS and the new BMW 6-Series Gran Sport fighting it out for some odd honors: they all have four doors, but deny they're sedans. Instead, we're supposed to think of them as coupes.
The Volkswagen CC is unique: it's the only German four-door sedan at its price point to claim it's a coupe. And like its luxury brothers, it does a fair job convincing us, at least in styling, where its elegant silhouette reminds us of some of the more handsome auto-show concept cars we've seen in the past decade. The design looks timeless, with flowing lines, a low roofline, and frameless windows--not to mention a very succinctly styled rear end. The most serious objection we can find is that the CC has long overhangs--the distance from the wheels to the ends of the car--and even that only helps to elongate its body in a more sensual way.The Volkswagen CC's interior still stands out several years after introduction; it includes details like contrast stitching, contrast color themes for the upholstery, and pleasing, upscale trims that aren't typical in a car that starts well under the $30k mark.
The Volkswagen CC's sheetmetal is elegant; the interior, inspiring.
