Particularly disappointing in the CC is the complete lack of driver assistance features. No blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control, or lane-departure warning is included or available.
CNET



The 2013 Volkswagen CC is based on the Passat family, yet it's different enough to warrant separate crash tests from the major agencies; and when this review had been posted, those results simply weren't available yet.

That said, the CC has a pretty good record for safety and has performed well in the past according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)—and structurally, it hasn't changed for 2013.

Side and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes are all standard in the CC, and rear side bags, a feature not always offered in this class, are optional. For 2013, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps are a standard feature on all CC models.

The only safety-related gripe we've consistently had with the CC is that visibility is downright poor—nearly as much as in some low-slung sports cars—and the steeply raked windshield and backlight provide a rather narrow slit through which to view the world.

Front and rear parking aids are offered in the CC; unfortunately VW configures the CC so that you have to step all the way up to the top-of-the-line VR6 4Motion Executive model to get them.

 

Conclusion

The CC has a record for good safety ratings, and its feature set is sound.

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.
