2013 Volkswagen CC
2013 Volkswagen CC

New For 2013

Freshened front and rear styling gives the CC a bolder look at the expense of some elegance, but the CC remains a beautiful car that looks more expensive than it is. Practical buyers can finally add the CC to their shopping list, as Volkswagen has replaced the rear bucket seats with a three-person bench. The face-lift adds bixenon headlights and LED taillights to the CC’s standard equipment list.


The CC offers the sporty dynamics, exceptional interior, and premium feel that are Volkswagen hallmarks. The base engine is VW’s excellent turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Its refinement and power make it as good as the V-6s from many of its competitors, and it has better fuel economy. If you insist on a six-cylinder, Volkswagen offers a 280-hp VR6 that’s full of personality. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 2.0T; the optional six-speed automatic is a dual-clutch unit, meaning shifts are quicker and more direct. It’s a great gearbox, particularly in a sporty car, but comfort-minded buyers might be turned off by it. All-wheel drive and a torque-converter automatic transmission are standard with the more powerful six-cylinder. The sloping roofline makes the CC a four-door “coupe” in the vein of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and restricts rear-seat headroom. Volkswagen has caved to customer demand and added a third seat in back for the 2013 face-lift, but the car is barely large enough to hold a fifth person for more than a few miles. All CCs are equipped with a panoramic sunroof, split-folding rear seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. With the Passat’s recent $7000 price cut, the CC might not appear to be the value that it actually is. We love it because it embodies the Volkswagen character that we cherish.


ABS; front, side, and side curtain air bags; tire-pressure monitoring; and traction and stability control are standard. Volkswagen’s Intelligent Crash Response System shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard warning lights after a serious accident.

2013 Volkswagen CC Front Left View
The Volkswagen CC was quite a dramatic looking car when it debuted in 2008, aping the sultry "four-door coupe" look that had debuted on the Mercedes-Benz CLS-class a few years earlier. Now, though, nearly every mid-size sedan has adopted the eye-pleasing and aerodynamically sound profile, including the Hyundai Sonata and the 2013 Ford Fusion. Fortunately, a face-lift for 2013, which includes very smart LED taillights, means the Volkswagen CC still looks sharp four years after its introduction.

The R-Line treatment has been applied to many of Volkswagen's models sold in Europe, including the Tiguan, Passat, and other models. The one U.S. model that has consistently offered the trim level has been the CC, and the tradition will continue with the 2013 model, which will be headed to U.S. showrooms this fall.

Recall Date
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a cover to prevent clockspring contamination. Any clockspring that fails prior to the cover installation will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on September 25, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when parts become available in early 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
