Volkswagen CC review

Published: 13 Jan 2015

Good stuff

Now a five seater, well built, good looking

Bad stuff

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.

What's the verdict?

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