2010 Volkswagen CC news, pictures, and information
The Volkswagen Jetta, CC, Tiguan, and Routan Place Among the Best of the Best in Consumer Guide® Automotive's 2010 AwardsFour models from Volkswagen's 2010 lineup – the brand-leading Jetta, the stylish and sporty CC, the versatile Tiguan, and the family-ready Routan – have been ranked by Consumer Guide® Automotive as some of the best vehicles for consumers to consider and purchase this year. Consumer Guide Automotive editors tested more than 150 vehicles across 18 different categories to select this year's winners. Each vehicle is evaluated for power, real world fuel economy, ride and handling, room and comfort, cargo space, and overall quality through everyday scenarios that a typical owner would experience, such as shopping, commuting, long highway trips, and stop-and-go city driving.
For 2010, the Jetta was named a Best Buy in the 'Compact Car' category; the CC received the Best Buy title among 'Premium Midsize Cars'; the Tiguan earned Best Buy status for 'Compact SÚVs'; and the Routan was 'Recommended' in the 'Minivan' group.
'It is an honor to have even one model rated wîth the Best Buy or Recommended title from the distinguished group at Consumer Guide,' said Mark Barnes, COO, Volkswagen Group of America. 'Having four Volkswagens in this prestigious group for 2010 is consistent wîth our goal of producing vehicles that satisfy the driving needs and desires of our customers.'
With German-bred engineering, appealing designs inside and out, fun-to-drive dynamics, and a host of fuel-efficient engines, the Jetta, CC, Tiguan, and Routan aim to please at every start of the ignition. All 2010 Volkswagens include the Prevent and Preserve Safety System as standard, which helps keep drivers and passengers safe during normal driving conditions, and reduce the severity and consequences of a possible crash. Like all 2010 Volkswagen models, the Jetta, CC, Tiguan, and Routan feature standard Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), up to eight airbags (depending on model), and a host of other standard features.
The entire 2010 Volkswagen lineup also features the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. With it, all of the scheduled maintenance for the vehicle, as described in its maintenance booklet, is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty—three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
