It's hard to compare CC prices with the Passat saloon’s because of differences in spec. That said, the CC is around £1500 more, which is borderline reasonable. Used-car valuers reckon the CC will be worth three to five per cent more than the saloon when you resell it, though. The economy and emissions of the diesel and petrol turbo engines won't frighten company car users.
Volkswagen Passat CC Saloon quality & reliability
It would be churlish to over-criticise the Passat CC's fit and finish, but unfair to overlook one or two areas where the plastics aren't quite up to the high standards of the rest of the car. Generally, though, the interior is of a high quality and sufficiently different from the saloon's to make you feel you are buying a bespoke model. Reliability should be OK, even though VW’s record for dependability has been on the wane in recent years.
Volkswagen Passat CC Saloon safety & security
With up to eight airbags and stability control as standard on every model, the Passat CC is pretty well equipped to avoid accidents, or make them more survivable. There's lots more on the options list, however, including a lane-departure warning system and cruise control that automatically maintains the distance to the car ahead.
