The Volkswagen CC, was a four-door sedan initially sold as the Volkswagen Passat CC when it first was released, was a variant of the Volkswagen Passat that traded a coupe-like profile and sweeping roofline for reduced headroom and cargo space. The CC was unveiled in January 2008, at the North American International Auto Show. However, if you ever need a helping hand when repairing your CC, grab a Volkswagen CC repair manual and get to work.
Volkswagen alluded to the fact that the name CC is the abbreviation of Comfort Coupe, which refers to the CC's combination of a coupe-like profile with four rather than two doors. Although the CC is similar to the Passat and does indeed share the same wheelbase, the CC is 1.06 inches (27 mm) longer, 1.97 inches (50 mm) lower, and 1.42 inches (36 mm) wider than the Passat.
On July 15th, 2010, the CC was released in China by FAW-Volkswagen in both a 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI trim. The reworked version of the CC was marketed as having ""sports car"" dynamics, but road tests indicate to this being merely a marketing ploy.
The CC was available with a 1.4 L E85 TFSI, 1.8 L petrol inline-four, 2.0 L petrol inline four, a 2.0 L inline-four TDI engine, and a 3.6 L VR6 engine producing 295 hp (220 kW;299 PS) with 4motion FWD and a 6-speed Direct-Shift Gearbox transmission.
In North American, VW released the CC with the option of either the 2.0T I4 and 3.6 L VR6 engine. The 3.6 L VR6 engine offered an output of 276 hp (206 kW) and produced 265 lb⋅ft (359 N⋅m) of torque in both the 4MOTION versions and FWD. Meanwhile, the 2.0T produces 200 hp (150 kW) and 207 lb⋅ft (281 N⋅m) of torque. The 2.0T engine is the only version that there is a manual transmission option for.
In Europe, the CC was offered with 4MOTION 4WD on the 2.0 L TDI engines. The 138 hp (103 kW;140 PS) model came with a manual transmission, while the 168 hp (125 kW;170 PS) model featured a Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG). An AdBlue version offering 141 hp (105 kW;143 PS) name BlueTDI is also produced. For the model year of 2011, in Europe, the 2.0T saw an upgrade to 208 hp (211 PS;155 kW) thereby using the engine variant introduced in the Golf VI.
Despite the fact that the hayday of the VW CC is over, don’t let that fool you into thinking they aren’t still around. They’re out there. So, remember if you ever need help servicing your CC, having a Volkswagen CC service manual can make the job go smoother.
