When the Passat CC made its Australian debut three years ago, it was the first four-door coupé in its respective price range. From this niche, a new segment grew – to date, nearly 320,000 people around the globe have chosen the Passat CC: a luxury sedan with the stylish lines of a coupé. Customers enjoyed the alternative to the classic sedan. The Passat CC’s elegance, yet valued the space, comfort and convenience of four-doors.

The new CC has arrived locally and in keeping with the new global naming the "Passat" has been dropped from the model name making the new model, simply, Volkswagen CC.

Adopting Volkswagen ‘design DNA’, the new Volkswagen CC receives completely redesigned front and rear sections, giving them more precision and fluidity. As a result, the car has an even more sophisticated and dynamic overall appearance.

Volkswagen CC’s list of standard equipment now includes such features as the innovative Driver Fatigue Detection system; RNS510 Satellite Navigation; rear view camera; stainless steel door sill plates and front comfort head restraints with additional front-rear adjustment.

New assistance systems are now available on the Volkswagen CC as well. They include optional technologies such as those found in the Driver Assistance Package - Side Assist and Lane Assist, which warns of vehicles in blind spots and supports the driver via steering intervention, Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist and City Emergency Brake function. Meanwhile, the optional Active Climate Control front seats are now integrated with a gentle massage function, optimising driver comfort (available only in conjunction with Black Nappa leather appointed seat upholstery).

The Volkswagen CC can be powered by either a petrol direct injection (FSI) or diesel (TDI) engine and is equipped with BlueMotion Technology offering a Start/Stop system and battery regeneration, along with the frugal Coasting Function, all as standard equipment.

The 2.0 litre TDI engine has a power output of 125 kW at 4,200 rpm. The 3.6 litre V6 FSI engine of the Volkswagen CC develops 220 kW of power at 6,600 rpm. The 3.6 litre V6 comes with the 4MOTION drivetrain.

Both the TDI and the FSI engines are matched with Volkswagen’s 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) including Sports Mode and Triptronic Function. Both engines of the Volkswagen CC are designed to maximise efficiency. The frugal 125TDI is a prime example: it consumes just 5.7 l/100 km – which is very little fuel for a sedan of this size.

Sporty and efficient

The new Volkswagen CC will be powered by innovative petrol and diesel direct-injection engines; the diesel (TDI) is equipped with Volkswagen’s BlueMotion Technology which includes the Start/Stop system and a battery regeneration mode (which recovers braking energy) as standard equipment. The petrol engine also has battery regeneration functionality. The V6 FSI is equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard. The CC is available with a 6-speed DSG transmission only.

Overview of the Volkswagen CC 4-cylinder diesel

The 2.0 litre common rail diesel of the Volkswagen CC outputs 125 kW of power and develops 350 Newton metres of torque from 1,750 rpm. The Volkswagen CC covers the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds. Its impressively low combined fuel consumption value is just 5.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 150 g/km CO2). (copyright image)

Overview of the Volkswagen CC V6 FSI.

The petrol engine for the Volkswagen CC is a 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine with 220 kW (at 6,600 rpm). It develops a maximum torque of 350 Newton metres (2,400 to 5,300 rpm) and accelerates the four-door coupé from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. The combined fuel consumption of the V6 FSI engine is 9.7 l/100 km (215 g/km CO2).

DSG Transmission

Both engines of the new Volkswagen CC are paired with a 6-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) as standard equipment. The DSG transmission is characterised by maximum economy and dynamic shifting with the dual clutches operating in an oil bath. More than any other automatic, the dual clutch gearbox also has the potential to reduce fuel consumption and, in turn, emissions.

4MOTION all-wheel drive

The Volkswagen CC V6 FSI is equipped with 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard. Normally, the front axle is driven and the rear axle only gets 10 per cent of propulsive power. This saves on fuel. Not until necessary – based on the specific powertrain and roadway situation – is the rear axle brought into play, step by step. This is done by an electrohydraulic all-wheel drive clutch. An advantage of electronic control is no speed differences are needed between the front and rear axles to activate the all-wheel drive clutch, since pressure is built up by an electric pump.


The Volkswagen CC is 4,799 mm long; its wheelbase is 2,708 mm, with a width of 1,855 mm. The height of the four-door coupé is a low 1,421 mm.
