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

With the CC's coupe-like appearance and dimensions come a few coupe-like compromises. There's less space inside, the rear seat is difficult to get in and out of compared to a more upright four-door, and the driving position is lower than some folks used to sedans might like.

Realistically, though, unless you frequently carry taller adults in the backseat, the CC's fashion-forward nature doesn't become a big problem. We see the CC working best for those who plan to carry a child or two in back, or who generally drive alone, with the back seat adding more flexibility than a two-door would.

There are definitely some things to be critical about with respect to the packaging, though. Headroom is a bit tight, especially in the rear, and you'll either love or hate the driving position—the seat is low to the floor and has large side bolsters that create a scoop. The three-passenger back seat is comfortable, but headroom is tight and the curvy roofline makes for a small door opening.

But there's also a lot to love--again with the caveat that you don't plan to stuff 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 for long items like skis; and there are some useful cubbies and bins scattered around the cabin. Interior trim pieces look and feel like those in a luxury vehicle, the ride is comfortable and controlled, and the trunk is huge.

The frameless door system, a coupe staple, has another advantage: after the door is closed, the window is shut tight up against the seal, which effectively minimizes wind noise.

Conclusion

A spacious trunk and supportive three-across rear seats are better selling points than the CC's low front buckets and the slim headroom in back.

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.
