For Good-looking both outside and in, adequately roomy and powered by excellent engines, the Volkswagen CC makes a fine long-distance machine.

Against A bit pricey, and keen drivers will be disappointed by slow-witted steering and ordinary handling

Volkswagen CC Saloon

The Volkswagen CC is a very handsome saloon that loses little to the more upright Passat in practical terms. It’s more expensive, though, and isn't as sporty as it appears.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

In these days of seven- and five-year warranties, a three-year guarantee doesn’t look so good, especially with a 60,000 mile limit.

The Volkswagen CC GT is likely to be quite a popular choice with its bigger wheels and leather trim, but the extra might be better spent on Lane Assist, which includes traffic sign recognition; park assist, which can automatically steer the car into a space 0.8m longer than the vehicle itself; and automatic distance control, which can emergency brake the car in city driving.

More indulgently, the CC is available with a particularly tasteful array of interior colour schemes that do much to make its cabin look sumptuously inviting, although some of these choices are pricey.
