Car and Driver
The V-6 slurped fuel, by VW standards, and also felt a bit sluggish.
If you opt for one of the 2014 Volkswagen CC models with the 2.0T engine, what you're getting is a reasonably fuel-efficient sedan that is about par among rival models--if not a bit better--at an EPA-rated 21 or 22 in the city and 31 or 32 on the highway.Go with the VR6, and you'll find its just as thirsty as some SUVs, at 17 mpg city, 25 highway; to us, that model's additional performance doesn't nearly justify its much greater consumption.
We've found the dual-clutch automatic transmission (DSG) to be very efficient and responsive in real-world driving, and it doesn't cut gas mileage like some conventional automatic transmissions.
Get the 2014 Volkswagen CC in its far more fuel-efficient 2.0T form if gas mileage matters.
