2014 Volkswagen CC Styling

9.0
Styling

The Volkswagen CC is particularly rakish for a sedan--so much that Volkswagen was calling it a four-door coupe when it first introduced the model a number of years back. While the design holds its own even today, and it still looks more rakish than the conservative Passat mid-size sedan, it's no longer one of the most daring four-door designs.

While up close it might look decidedly like a sedan, if you step back and view this model's side profile, it's easy to see why. it has proportions that hint 'rear-wheel-drive sport sedan' to some (and nod to the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7, among others), even though it's a front-driver. Frameless doors are among a few details that still give this model some design conversation points.

With a true luxury-caliber cabin, plus the profile of a coupe and sport sedan together in one, the 2014 Volkswagen CC has a lot of design charm.

Volkswagen just last year gave the CC a mid-cycle refresh that kept its distinct profile but redrew some of the details in front and in back (adding LED lamps, among other upscale touches). Other noteworthy changes then included a rejiggered three-person back seat (in earlier model years you'll find a stylish but less practical two-person setup), and upgraded materials for the dash and cabin.
