The car also has voice command, but it controls neither the stereo nor the navigation system. Voice command only covers the CC's Bluetooth phone system, which is the most advanced cabin tech feature in the car.

The 2013 Volkswagen CC would be an impressive car if it were priced in the mid-20s. At $35,000, its sparse cabin tech does not measure up with the competition.

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.


The CC is essentially VW's luxury sedan--and you no longer need to get the V-6 to have some of the top features.

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.
