Seating in the VW CC is idiosyncratic; but the quiet, supple ride, excellent trims, and spacious trunk help outweigh some of those impressions.

Expert Quotes:

evoked memories of warm, comfortable couches, and the contrasting stitching on the seats had fans, too
Motor Trend

As is common on so-called four-door coupes, the rear headroom won’t work for passengers above six feet in height, but otherwise the seating is quite comfortable in the firm Germanic oeuvre.
Winding Road

The low roofline makes ingress and egress tricky, too.
Car and Driver

It manages dips and bumps wonderfully, but the ride gets busy when the street surface is pocked
Motor Trend

Take the swoopy roofline, the more coupe-like appearance, and the sport-sedan proportions, and you might suspect that you're giving up some interior space and practicality with the 2014 Volkswagen CC, compared to other more staid sedans. Rightly so.

Realistically, though, unless you frequently carry taller adults in the backseat, the CC's fashion-forward nature, you really don't sacrifice that much space—and we see the CC working just fine for all but those who plan on frequently carrying taller adults in the backseat.

There are definitely some things to be critical about with respect to the packaging, though. Headroom is a bit tight, and you'll either love or hate the somewhat 'scooped up' driving position. The three-passenger back seat is comfortable, but headroom is tight and the curvy roofline makes entry and exit tougher than you might think.

On the other hand, there's a lot to love--again provided you don't plan to cram adults in the back seat. The rear seatbacks flip forward to expand cargo space when needed; there's also a well-placed pass-through at the armrest; and there are some useful cubbies and bins. Interior trims look and feel luxury-grade, the ride is absorbent and controlled, and the trunk is huge.

Ride quality in the CC is also excellent—firm but supple enough to soak up minor potholes, and quiet. The frameless door system, which uses the power-window system to lock them tight after you close the doors, is also effective in really minimizing wind noise.


Seating in the VW CC is idiosyncratic; but the quiet, supple ride, excellent trims, and spacious trunk help outweigh some of those impressions.

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.
