Editor's Overview

Owing the lion’s share of its mechanicals to the VW Passat, the 2016 Volkswagen CC 4-door coupe delivers the same comfort and performance in a sleeker, but decidedly less functional, design. If you don’t care about rear-seat space, the added cost of the CC over the Passat should be easy to justify.

Summary:
