Insight: 2017 VW CC From Riverside Volkswagen Dealers

The 2017 Volkswagen CC is one of the best midsize sedans on the market, thanks to its luxurious features and upscale cabin. Customers of the Riverside Volkswagen Dealer are surprised when they learn the Volkswagen CC also carries a very reasonable starting price.

Two trim levels are offered: Sport and R-Line Executive. The latter has an optional R-Line Executive With Carbon package, which adds carbon-fiber interior trim and gloss black exterior. The Sport includes dual-zone automatic climate control and power-adjustable, heated front seats. Opt for the R-Line Executive trim and you’ll get amenities that include driver safety aids, a panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery.

Powering the Volkswagen CC is a standard turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque, teamed with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. The R-Line Executive trim features steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Fuel economy is estimated by the EPA at 25 mpg combined (22 mpg city/31 mpg highway).*

The 2017 Volkswagen CC is Sporty Just Like Riverside

The Volkswagen CC delivers sporty handling that’s balanced and comfortable. Bumpy roads are easily absorbed and the ride stays smooth when driving over rough pavement. Kelley Blue Book wrote: “Combined with its lightweight body, the CC serves up engaging yet comfortable driving manners. VW has managed to make the CC's taut suspension proactive in the curves without being overly reactive to road imperfections, such as expansion joints and potholes. As one would expect from a Volkswagen, the CC's steering is precise and well balanced, with just the right amount of power assist when needed."

The 2017 Volkswagen CC has attractive styling that stands out from the other cars in its segment. This sedan has the look of a coupe, with frameless windows that emphasize its sleek profile.

Inland Empire Drivers Demand Room and Comfort

Inside, you’ll find a quiet, comfortable cabin with luxury appointments throughout. The standard V-Tex vinyl upholstery has a premium look, while the R-Line Executive steps up to leather seats. Volkswagen’s Car-Net Security & Service lets drivers access certain smartphone apps directly through the car’s radio. In addition, it allows you to locate your parked car, check to see if the doors are locked, call for help in an emergency, and send a health report of your vehicle that includes diagnostics.

There’s 13.2 cubic feet of space in the trunk, with a low bumper and trunk bottom that make loading heavy items a lot easier. The rear seat can be folded down to create a long opening to accommodate larger gear.

Standard safety features include 4-wheel ABS, emergency braking assist, stability control, traction control, dual front side-mounted airbags, and front and rear head airbags. Available on the Sport and standard on the R-Line Executive are active safety and driving aids such as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and a forward-collision warning system that automatically applies the brakes if it senses a crash is imminent.
