2009 Volkswagen CC news, pictures, and information
2009 CC: VOLKSWAGEN'S ALL-NEW STYLISH COUPE-LIKE SEDANThe all-new CC – Volkswagen's stylish new offering has been designed and engineered to blend sports car dynamics and dimensions wîth sedan comfort in a sophisticated package. The CC features a masculine shoulder line, which visually connects the front wheel wells to the taillights, providing the emotional and expressive stance of a sports coupe wîth all the convenience of a sedan.

In addition to its dramatically lowered, rear-swept roofline and well-planted stance, other distinguishing exterior cues on the CC include: frameless doors; flowing lines in the side profile; larger, more prominent brand-specific face wîth bolder crossstrut chrome grille design; a large panoramic power vent sunroof that reaches out to the
roof rails and covers the entire forward portion of the roof to the B-pillars (standard on all but Sport); and 17- or 18-inch multi-spoke wheel designs (four designs in all).
The interior of the four-passenger CC carries the same recognized virtues of its Volkswagen brethren wîth additional details. Four ergonomically formed sport seats that are positioned to sit low offer improved lateral support to enhance the feeling of connectivity between driver, passengers and machine without sacrificing comfort. The split folding rear seats also ensure utility when needed, and they are separated by a center roll-top covered fold-down console for drinks and an emergency medical kit.
The new navigation system wîth MDI (Media Device Interface) incorporates intuitive color touch-screen control of onboard systems and personal devices; a 32GB hard disk supported navigation system; and rear parking assistance system that displays rearview camera images.
A leather-wrapped §teering wheel and shifter are standard equipment as are chrome finished dial appointments, and full brushed aluminum trim is standard on the Luxury and both VR6 models. The Sport trim package incorporates V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, while all others carry leather-skinned sport seats.

The CC Sport and Luxury models are equipped wîth Volkswagen's 2.0T inline four-cylinder engine carrying a turbocharger wîth intercooler and double overhead camshafts. The advanced four-valve per cylinder powerplant also is equipped wîth variable valve timing and a direct-injection fuel delivery system, both of which contribute
to optimum fuel efficiency.
Mated wîth either a six-speed manual (Sport only) or six-speed automatic transmission wîth Tiptronic®, the 2.0T delivers 200-horsepower at 5100 rpm, and 207 lb.- ft. of torque between 1800 and 5000 rpm. The 2.0T delivers on its promise of performance wîth efficiency by achieving fuel economy of 21-mpg in the city, and 31-mpg on the highway wîth the manual, and 19-city/29-highway wîth the automatic – corresponding estimated 0-to-60-mph performance is a very capable 6.9- and 7.4-seconds respectively.
VR6 Sport and VR6 4Motion models incorporate a 24-valve 3.6L DOHC V6 – a refined version of Volkswagen's famous narrow-angle V6 engine wîth cylinder banks that create a 'V' angle of just 10.6 degrees resulting in a more compact sized powerplant. The 3.6L engine – which also incorporates variable valve timing, variable intake lengths, and direct-injection technologies for optimized power and efficiency – is mated to a six-speed automatic wîth Tiptronic and delivers 280-horsepower at 6200 rpm and 265 lb.-ft of torque at 2750 rpm. Zero-to-60-mph performance is estimated at an exceptional 6.6-seconds; and fuel efficiency is 18-mpg in the city and 27-mpg on the highway.
All CC models are equipped wîth a specifically tuned sport suspension and electromechanical power §teering wîth dual-pinions for exceptional, performanceoriented ride and handling characteristics.
A sophisticated front McPherson concept suspension wîth triangular wishbone configuration, coil springs, telescopic self-leveling shocks and stabilizer bar ensures balance, comfort and agility in all driving scenarios, as does a fully independent four-link rear wîth coil springs, telescopic shocks and stabilizer bar.
The CC is designed and executed to deliver outstanding safety performance and comes wîth a host of safety technologies.
Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), including four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS) wîth vented front and solid rear discs, Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Yaw Control come standard. Brake Assist (BA) and Electronic Differential Locking (EDL) also come standard. All contribute to exceptional stability and control on all kinds of roads and situations where even the best of drivers might struggle to keep their cars on the road. The addition of 4Motion all-wheel-drive on the uplevel VR6 takes vehicle dynamics to an even higher level.
In addition to ESP (which is standard on all 2009 model year Volkswagen offerings), the CC comes equipped wîth standard driver and front passenger advanced multistage front airbags; driver and front passenger side-thorax airbags; head curtain airbags (front and rear); three-point safety belts front and rear; emergency locking
retractors for all seating positions; optimized front head restraints; safety belt power pretensioners at the driver and front passenger positions; safety belt load limiters for driver, front passenger and rear outboard seating positions; tire pressure monitoring system; and rear seat LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) anchorage and top tether child seat attachments. A rear passenger side-thorax airbag system wîth safety
belt pretensioners is optional.
Bi-Xenon headlamps incorporated wîth an Adaptive Forward Lighting System (AFS) for improved visibility is standard wîth the 3.6L.
For added assurance, the new CC comes wîth 24-hour Roadside Assistance for four years or 50,000 miles (whichever occurs first), plus new vehicle warranties including:
• Five-year/60,000 mile (whichever occurs first) Powertrain Limited Warranty.
• Three-year/36,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty wîth wear and tear items and adjustments.
• 12-year unlimited distance Limited Warranty against corrosion perforation.
Also standard wîth the CC is Volkswagen's Carefree Maintenance Program. With this program there are no charges for the scheduled maintenance described in the CC's maintenance booklet for the length of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty—three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.Source - Volkswagen
