Volkswagen is making a very serious push to have the 2009 Volkswagen CC serve as a more affordable alternative to some higher-priced sports coupes, yet it's still managed to keep a long list of standard features on the table. The available options list can also help you add anything that you feel is missing from the basic Volkswagen CC package.
The 2009 Volkswagen CC boasts a fair number of standard features, especially on the VR6 models. According to Road and Track reviewers, the base Volkswagen CC gets "heated front seats, cruise control with steering-wheel controls, 12-way power-adjustable front seats with power lumbar support," and an "8-speaker, in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 player." Moving up to Volkswagen 2009 CC in 2.0T Luxury trim brings dual-zone climate control and rain-sensing windshield wipers, along with leather upholstery and a panorama sunroof. For those interested in the Volkswagen CC VR6, Edmunds reports that the standard features list grows to include a "superb Dynaudio sound system that pumps out 600 watts of raw musical power through 10 speakers," while Autoblog also notes the inclusion of "18-inch wheels and bi-xenon headlights." The 2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 4Motion is essentially the same as the VR6 Sport, although it does get all-wheel-drive transmission.
The standard versions of the Volkswagen 2009 CC are very functional and appealing in their own right, but Volkswagen acknowledges that some customers will desire a bit more technology. Addressing these customers, Road and Track says Volkswagen will offer "a Technology Package [for the Volkswagen CC] that offers a 20-gigabit hard drive, navigation system and a rear back-up camera." Edmunds reviewers love the navigation and audio interface, "controlled by VW's new touchscreen interface" that they feel is "easy enough to figure out thanks to logical menus and helpful physical buttons that run alongside the screen." Autoblog notes that "the unit offers traffic data" as well, along with "maps in an easier to understand 3D mode." Bluetooth wireless cell phone connectivity is also available on the 2009 Volkswagen CC lineup.
From Bluetooth to navigation to high-end audio systems, the 2009 Volkswagen CC has it all—but most of it is optional.
