History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Volkswagen CC page on 24 June 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Volkswagen CC, originally marketed as the Volkswagen Passat CC in its first generation) is a four door sedan version of the Volkswagen Passat that trades a coupé-like profile and sweeping roofline for reduced headroom and cargo space. The CC debuted in January 2008, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and was discontinued after the 2017 model year.

Volkswagen said the name CC stands for Comfort Compact, recognizing its combination of a coupe-like profile with four rather than two doors. While based on the Passat, and sharing its wheelbase, the CC is 27 mm (1.06 inches) longer, 50 mm (1.97 inches) lower, and 36 mm (1.42 inches) wider than the Passat.

At its launch in 2008, Volkswagen forecast 300,000 sales over a period of seven years. The automaker expected that 60% of these sales (about 26,000 units per year) will come from the market of the United States. In China, the CC was released by FAW-Volkswagen on July 15, 2010, and is available in 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI trims.

With the revised version, Volkswagen promotes the CC as having "sports car" dynamics, but road tests indicate that "calling the CC a sport sedan is completely misleading."

Compared to other midsize sedans in the marketplace, the 2013 Volkswagen CC was evaluated by Edmunds as "attractive and higher-quality alternative ... though its smallish backseat and trunk may be deal-breakers ... [and] the sport tuned suspension is on the firm side." Automotive journalists describe the CC sedan's ride as "nearly sports car firm, with every bump and undulation sent directly to your backside."

The car has a 2,711 mm (106.7 in) wheelbase and is available with a 1.4 litre E85 TFSI (Finland and Sweden), 1.8 litre petrol inline-four, 2.0 litre petrol inline four, a 2.0 litre inline four TDI engine in various drivetrain configurations, as well as with a 3.6 litre VR6 engine (220 kW (299 PS; 295 hp)) with 4motion four-wheel drive and a 6 speed Direct-Shift Gearbox transmission.

The North American market has the 2.0T I4 and 3.6 L VR6 engine as options. This version of the VR6 engine offers an output of 206 kW (276 hp) and 265 lb⋅ft (359 N⋅m) of torque in both front wheel drive and 4MOTION versions, while the 2.0T produces 200 hp (150 kW) 207 lb⋅ft (281 N⋅m). Manual transmission is available in the 2.0T engine option only. It also comes with automatic transmission.

On the European market, the CC was offered with 4MOTION four wheel drive on the 2.0 litre TDI engines. The 103 kW (140 PS) model came with manual transmission and the 125 kW (170 PS) model with Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG). An AdBlue version offering 105 kW (143 PS) name BlueTDI is also produced. Availability varies by country. For the model year of 2011 (available by the end of 2010) the 2.0T in Europe was upgraded to 155 kW (211 PS; 208 hp) thereby using the engine variant introduced in the Golf VI GTI.


Photographs

Volkswagen CC Note from Bill: this picture was taken in front of a Chicago hotel. I thought it had a great background for an elegant looking black Volkswagen. I tried to take the picture before the kid got into the shot, but he made it...and slipped on a steel grate and fell as I took the picture. His parents picked him up, and as I repositioned myself for the picture, a gentleman walking in the other direction came by and slipped on the same grate! I helped him up, and as he walked away a hotel bellhop was at the car with the trunk open, and I never got the shot.
