What is it like to drive?
The CC is a really comfortable pliable car. In dealing with jagged surfaces - which means half the roads in Britain - it's one of the most civilised things this side of a big Jag. It's also available with Adaptive Chassis Control Setting, a three-stage adaptive suspension, and twiddling the knob to 'sport' adds some firmness to the ride and weight to the steering, but just because you can feel a difference doesn't mean it makes any difference.
The ride is very plush, particularly models with optional adaptive damping, and it's just the thing to soak away long distances with a lack of fuss. Fleet drivers will adore it.
Familiarly VW fare with the engines: the 2.0-litre TDI comes in 140bhp and 177bhp guise, and is predictably torquey and strong, joined by two petrols, a 1.4-litre TSI with 160bhp, and a 210bhp 2.0-litre.
