Overall, the Volkswagen CC scores quite well—though not perfectly—according to major crash-test results and offers a few more safety features than is typical.

In NHTSA's crash-testing regimen, it rates four of five stars in the frontal driver, frontal passenger, and side rear passenger categories, while it manages five stars for its side driver crash protection. The IIHS gives the CC its top "good" rating in frontal and side tests. All the expected safety features are included—side and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes—and rear side bags, a feature not always offered in this class, are optional.

In addition to very good but not quite perfect test scores, the 2010 Volkswagen CC lineup offers all the usual safety goodies to keep drivers out of harm's way. Cars.com reports that the Volkswagen CC "is equipped with six standard airbags, including side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags." ConsumerGuide also notes the availability of "front and rear obstacle detection." Up front, the driver and front passenger both get active front head restraints, while Cars.com states that "all-disc antilock brakes" and "brake assist" are standard as well.

Visibility in the Volkswagen CC can be an issue; it’s nearly as poor as that of some low-slung sports cars, and it can be an issue whether parking or just trying to change lanes on the highway. ConsumerGuide agrees that "visibility to the rear is impeded by a raked rear window and thick C-pillars."

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.
