How much does the Volkswagen CC cost to run?

The 2.0L diesel is the most economical Volkswagen CC to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Volkswagen CC 2.0L diesel costs £30.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band C.

It does almost 63 MPG on average, which means it will cost £10.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Volvo V60 2.4L diesel and the more thirsty Volvo V60 2.0L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 26, which is lower than the Audi A4 2.0L diesel, but higher than the BMW 1 Series 2.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Audi A4 has the lowest insurance group.)

Volkswagen CC: How big is the boot?

The Volkswagen CC has an above average boot space (533 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 3 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 4 large bags or 4 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Volvo V60 estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 564 litres.

Is the Volkswagen CC easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower BMW 1 Series.

This car is actually 2mm longer than the average street space, so parallel parking will never be easy.

Which Volkswagen CC has the best performance?

The fastest Volkswagen CC from 0-60, is the 2.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 280 lbs/ft torque and 184 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 8.1 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Audi A4 2.0L diesel, which will beat your Volkswagen CC to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Volkswagen CC tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Volkswagen CC 2.0L diesel which has 380 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1800kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
