2013 Volkswagen CC Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

A few model years ago, the EPA fuel economy figures of the Volkswagen CC would have been quite impressive; but at 21 or 22 in the city and 31 or 32 on the highway, they're now about par for a car this size.

On the other hand, the VR6 models are thirsty (as low as 17 mpg city, 25 highway with 4Motion), and in our opinion don't offer the added performance to justify their consumption.

The 2013 Volkswagen CC is lean and relatively efficient in 2.0T form, but very thirsty in VR6 form.

Just as the EPA ratings suggest, going for the DSG automatic instead of the manual gearbox likely won't bring any lower real-world mileage; it's an efficient and responsive combination and doesn't suffer from the losses of conventional hydraulic automatic transmissions.
