    Volkswagen is set to introduce a raft of new models over the coming years including a successor to the CC and an updated version of the current, seventh-generation Golf. Prototypes for the new CC were spied recently and details on the updated Golf have been hinted at by senior VW execs. The cars are expected in showrooms in 2017, as 2018 models. We now have images allegedly showing their final design. They were posted on Tuesday on a Dutch blog and are believed to be screenshots from the respective infotainment systems of the cars. The images of the new CC show a design that clearly resembles...

  • 2013 Volkswagen CC

    It’s hard to believe that Volkswagen’s stylish four-door coupe, the CC (or Passat CC as it's known elsewhere), has been with us for almost four years. That means the car’s about due for an obligatory mid-cycle refresh, a refresh that’s been revealed today ahead of its debut in just two weeks’ time at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. With nearly 270,000 CC sales worldwide since launch, it’s safe to say that Volkswagen’s designers got the look of the car just right the first time ‘round. Understandably then, for the latest update, the changes have...

  • 2009 volkswagen cc 002

    Advanced vehicle systems like stability control, ABS and traction control have become so common that we often gloss over them in a car's spec sheet, but they are important innovations for safety. Volkswagen's CC has taken that to heart, outfitting a core complement of technologies that have helped it secure the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick award. The basics - ESP, ABS, brake assist and traction control - are all accounted for on all 2009 Volkswagen CCs. The entire VW lineup for 2009 features ESP as standard, but bringing all of these systems together gives the CC...
