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 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.
With more features available at the four-cylinder level, you don't need to spend as much to get VW's best sedan.
