The 2014 Volkswagen CC is now offered in Sport, R-Line, 2.0T Executive, and VR6 Executive models. Now for 2014, the big news is that you no longer have to get the V6 in order to enjoy the top Executive trim--allowing you to pair the more fuel-efficient engine with some of the top features like premium sound, massage seats, and leather upholstery.
Power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; power front seats; and heated front seats are all standard on VW CC models. VW-Tex vinyl ("leatherette" is the word, we believe) is now the base upholstery in the CC, while true leather is reserved for top-of-the-line VR6 Lux and VR6 Executive 4Motion models. You also get USB and auxiliary-in ports, with Bluetooth hands-free connectivity.
Executive models command a price much, much higher, in part because they bundle in many more features and feel up to the part of a luxury car. Ventilated front seats with massage; Park Distance Control; front and rear proximity sensors; premium sound; and a power rear sunshade are among the Executive extras.
The VR6 model remains the only one in the lineup to get all-wheel drive. New for 2014, the Executive 2.0T steps up to those features plus navigation with Sirius XM Traffic, an 'Easy Open' motion-activated trunk opener, Keyless Access with push-button start, and a new 18-inch alloy wheel design. Sport models now get LED daytime running lamps, Adaptive Front Lighting, navigation, and a rearview camera. VW's Car-Net telematics system is also a new addition. allowing more infotainment options and more menu options to control vehicle settings.
