Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen CC

Overall verdict
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you


Now a five seater, well built, good looking


Drives fine, but doesn't live up to the promises its looks make


What is it?

Passat CC no more. It’s now a model on its own: the Volkswagen CC. Well yes, but it’s still a facelifted Passat CC, which means it’s a Passat in a fancy frock. And now the facelifted Passat has had its very own facelift, which has made it much more appealing.
