Mired in the shadows of the more commonly known Passat, the Volkswagen CC is actually a much better option to consider for interested buyers.

That might be a bold statement, but it doesn’t come with any tinge of hyperbole, either.

There’s a lot to like about the CC. It’s body dimensions convey the look of a luxury car and the interior does its best to make you feel like you’re in the same environment. It also has a choice of powertrains that you can pick depending on your preference.

And best of all, you know that you’re not going to burn any holes in your pockets by buying one. Sure, getting the top-of-the-line 3.6 VR6 4MOTION Executive might be a stretch at $42,895, but all other models fall in the range of $32,000 to $38,000.

At the very least, you know you’re getting a ride that’s worth the money.

2018 Volkswagen CC

2018 Volkswagen CC

VW is finally working on the second-gen CC after 8 years on the market.

The Volkswagen CC made its debut at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show as the Passat CC. The only big different between the CC and the Passat was the CC’s sweeping roofline that gave it a sleeker appearance at the sacrifice of head and cargo room inside. From the start, the car was offered with a full range of engines that included a 1.8-liter four-cylinder, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a 2.0-liter diesel, and a 3.6-liter V-6. It went through a facelift in 2011 that brought about a 1.4-liter gasoline mill into the mix and an upgrade of eight horsepower to the 2.0-liter gasoline unit. As part of the facelift, Volkswagen restyled the front and rear of the car but left it unchanged otherwise.

It’s been more than four years since the facelifted CC started production and it’s overdue for a generational shift if it VW wants to stay competitive in the market. We’ve been wondering when we were going to see the next-gen model testing in the wild and today, our wonders were put to rest with a decent run of spy shots that were taken just outside the Audi/VW test facility at the infamous Nürburgring. Unfortunately, it’s sporting a lot of camouflage and padding, but we can still see that VW has put some serious effort its redesign.

So, let’s quit wasting time and dive on into these spy shots and talk a little bit about the second-gen Volkswagen CC.

2015 Volkswagen CC - Driven

2015 Volkswagen CC - Driven

The CC has always been something different for Volkswagen. When it debuted in 2008, this curvy luxury sedan was VW’s second attempt at a surprisingly upscale product (the first was the Phaeton, which was a bit too upscale for the VW badge). Modern Volkswagens have evolved into well-built, fun-to-drive yet stylistically conservative vehicles. Even the sporty GTI shares an upright body and sensible hatchback with the subcompact Golf.

The CC, however, is a curvy, graceful four-door that competes with Acura, Infiniti and Lincoln, and even knocks at the door of its Audi cousins in some ways. The notion of a $40,000 Volkswagen sedan might seem strange at first, but don’t forget that Ford and Hyundai are also fielding premium cars at a similar price point. I spent a week with the 2015 Volkswagen CC, to see if Volkswagen’s quality and driving dynamics are good enough to compete with the offerings of the "real" premium brands.

2015 Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE

2015 Volkswagen Sport Coupe Concept GTE

Volkswagen first introduced its GTE lineup to us with the launch of the plug-in hybrid Golf GTE. A few months later, the Germans introduced the Passat GTE, offered in both sedan and station wagon versions. These models combined a peppy powertrain, quiet operation, and great fuel economy.

Now, Volkswagen is set to expand its GTE offerings, in a way, with the new Sport Coupe Concept GTE. This four-door coupe, which is likely a preview to the next-generation CC that Volkswagen needs so badly, may give the premium brands that rule the four-door coupe segment something to worry about, given it makes production.

A new CC is a great thing, but the issue is that Volkswagen’s sub-luxury coupe has never been a big seller. With its limited reach in its current generation, does it really even justify a new generation, let alone an advanced plug-in hybrid drivetrain?

2016 Volkswagen CC

2016 Volkswagen CC

The Volkswagen CC may not carry the same level of mainstream recognition as the Passat, but there’s a certain segment of the population that developed a certain level of affinity for the luxury sedan. Well, for those who fall under this category, good news has arrived in the form of a next-generation Volkswagen CC.

MotorTrend sat down and talked with VW of America president Michael Horn and among other topics that were discussed, the future of the next-generation CC was broached. According to Horn, the next-gen CC is already under development and there are talks within the company that the new CC could come in a radically new design that could have similarities with the Audi A7.

Horn also teased that the new CC could come in more than just one version, which could include a fastback model that will draw comparisons to the A7 Sportback. If anything, using the A7 as a peg for the next-generation CC is as good an indication as any that Volkswagen has some big plans for its luxury sedan.

Other than the expected design overhaul of the CC, Volkswagen is apparently considering building the sedan closer to where a bulk of its models will land. Horn indicated as much, telling MotorTrend that rising production costs could compel the company to shift production in the US or in Mexico.

That’s as much as we know about the Volkswagen CC. At this point, we’re just excited to see that VW has serious intentions of smoothly bringing along the next-generation CC.
