The 2015 Volkswagen CC is offered in Sport, R-Line, 2.0T Executive, and VR6 4Motion Executive models. Sport is the well-equipped base model, R-Line adds some design flair, and the Executive trim levels include 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 standard on all CC models. VW-Tex vinyl (what other companies call "leatherette") is the base upholstery in the CC, while true leather is reserved for top-of-the-line Executive models.
While the lower trim levels are relatively affordable, starting at around $33k, the Executive models command thousands more because they bundle in many more features and items you'd expect from a true luxury car. Ventilated front seats with massage; front and rear parking 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 4Motion all-wheel drive. For those who want the features without that expensive powertrain, the Executive 2.0T includes the same content, such as navigation with Sirius XM Traffic, an 'Easy Open' motion-activated trunk opener, Keyless Access with push-button start, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Sport models get LED daytime running lamps, Adaptive Front Lighting that swivels when you steer, 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. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity as well as USB and auxiliary-in audio ports are included as well.
The 2015 model brings two new optional wheel designs: 18-inch St. Louis wheels will be available at the start of production, while 18-inch Shanghai wheels will come online later in the model year.
