The 2009 Volkswagen CC—or Comfort Coupe—is a radical departure from VW's standard design language, but the styling is a runaway hit with reviewers. Expect to turn lots of heads while driving the Volkswagen CC.

The new-for-2009 Volkswagen CC is, according to Edmunds reviewers, "created by taking a Passat—same wheelbase, same powertrain, same basic interior—and lowering its roof line by 2 inches while radically changing the styling." Volkswagen's 2009 CC lineup will be available "in Sport, Luxury, VR6 Sport, and VR6 4Motion trim," according to ConsumerGuide, and all feature the alluring new styling elements. MyRide.com reviewers state that they are "certainly not disappointed with the exterior design," which they claim makes the 2009 Volkswagen CC "one of the most striking attractions to race down our streets in a long while." Road and Track reviewers describe one of the hallmark features as a "side character line that runs from the front to rear fenders [and] apes the sheet-metal crease on other vehicles including the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW's 3 Series." Overall, Jalopnik reviewers feel that the Volkswagen CC's exterior is "a hell of a lot less awkward than the CLS or any current BMW," and Car and Driver contends that, "depending on your styling preferences, [it] could even be considered sexy."

From the dash to the grille, it's clear that Volkswagen has placed a very strong emphasis on styling for the debut of the 2009 Volkswagen CC.

The sex appeal of the 2009 Volkswagen CC doesn't end with the exterior styling, as TheCarConnection.com's research uncovers a stunning interior layout for the new Volkswagen 2009 CC. Car and Driver reports that the 2009 Volkswagen CC features a new "instrument luster and an optional touch-screen navigation system" to set it apart from the standard Volkswagen Passat, and Edmunds reviewers praise the "well-laid-out, uncluttered control design." MyRide.com is even more effusive, describing the dashboard as a "combination of a texture, engineering elegance, and artistic elegance"; they add that the "cantilevered dash alone is an exquisite combination of surface contours that might be found on a vehicle costing two or three times the VW CC price." Consumers will also appreciate the intuitive, ergonomic control layout found inside the 2009 Volkswagen CC. ConsumerGuide is pleased to note that the Sport trim's "climate dials are large, clear, and simple to operate," while the Volkswagen CC "Luxury models have dual-zone climate controls that are well-lit and also intuitive to use."
