Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 32 highway (manual); 22/31 mpg (automatic); 17/27 (VR6); 17/25 mpg (VR6 4Motion)
U.S. EPA

In our hands, the CC returned a healthy 25 mpg in mixed driving.
Car and Driver

The V-6 slurped fuel, by VW standards, and also felt a bit sluggish.
USA Today



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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
