2009 VW Passat CC

rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
The Passat CC is coming soon. Some cool new features. It won't be decontented like the regular Passat in 2009. A new Touch screen navigation system will be available with iPod integration. The MDI is a really cool adaptor that allows iPod, Aux-in and USB through special cables. iPod must use the iPod cable not the iPod sync and USB cable combined. Dynaudio will be offered and there will be a lux model. For all CC and potential CC owners chat away.

    It's a car I'm looking forward to seeing & driving.
    Never owned a German car; but recently had a rented 08 passat while my car was in the shop. Drove it over 2,000 miles was getting 32-34 mpg overall & absolutely loved the way it drove & handled. I drive a lot of miles & wish they would put the diesel in it; then I'd first in line at the dealership when it arrives.

    Diesel is available in Europe. They have 3 or 4 diesels over there. Some don't have much power but they get really really good mileage.
  • Love the styling of this car! Anyone know what the msrp range is? My lease is up in a couple of months and will be in the market for a new sports sedan.

    disclaimer:while these specs are believed to be 100% correct these specs are subject to change at anytime.

    All the trims and options. The Navigation system is all new for 2009 and is a touch screen system and it actually has a 30 GB hard drive with 20 GB allocated for music. The backup camera and the MDI are delayed but you can retrofit it. A new tech feature for 09 is the new MDI. The MDI works with USB thumbdrives, Aux-in, and iPods through a special cable. The iPod cable is on backorder but can be ordered in Europe. You can also retrofit the MDI for a non tech RNS-510 enabled car. Hope this helps.

    Just saw in one of the enthusiast magazines, I think "Automobile", that the base price would be south of $28000. I think the actual figure was $27,400.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074

    This is the official pricing. Dynaudio is optional on the turbo 4 while the RNS-510 will get that cool backup camera. When you have it reverse the VW logo flips up to reveal the camera. The RNS-510 should be 30 GB Hard drive but then again 10 GB is used for storing the map. Music is around 20 GB but actually 18.62 GB. Hope this helps.

    Starts at 27K to about 42k for a v6 4motion tech. Check my gallery for better pics.
  • I think the CC can be preordered now at dealers. But I guess this means paying MSRP . Does anyone know when there will be general availability in Dealer stock?

    Thanks!
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    I heard November or December for availability. Something like that.
  • yeah..around that time , I put a call in to some dealers today here in NJ
    most are saying early November to around Thanksgiving time. May vary for other parts of the country..Thanks
  • bobgwtwbobgwtw Posts: 187
    Apreciate the information. 27 K looks like a very competitive price; but the $31,900 for the top of the line seems to be a bit of a stretch for what you're getting for the additional 4 grand.

    still looking forward to seeing & driving it; & it's still on my buy list when the Avalon goes next year.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    That doesn't include Dynaudio or Navigation. If buying a lux then stretch for the Dynaudio. It's simply awesome. You get a high quality sound system for 1,000 USD. What a steal.

    Edit: 31,990 is just for the Lux 4 cylinder.
  • bobgwtwbobgwtw Posts: 187
    Maybe the audio upgrade; don't need the nav. I travel with a Garmin portable & it does everything the factory units do for a lot less money. As for the engine, I've driven a turbo 4 passat over 2,000 miles while the Avalon was in the shop & find it to be most adequate and a lot of fun to drive.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    They have a non Nav version of the RNS-510 coming out. Maybe for 2010. The RCD-510 has a cd changer and no hard drive. It's also compatible with the MDI which plays various devices including iPod's. Only the RNS-510 navigation unit works with the MDI. VW hasn't upgraded the non nav headunits yet. I think they will by 2010. The dynaudio system is a very highly rated system. It rivals most aftermarket systems
  • does anyone know why it says "tilt only" for the sunroof... is that implying it won't slide open like a regular sunroof?
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    It's one of those vent roofs but it has a panoramic view so all isn't too lost.
  • The roof of the CC is so curved that it will not allow a standard roof operation.

    Beautiful car. Very CLS'ish.
  • runyrrunyr Posts: 1
    I test drove the 2.0T Luxury model yesterday. It looks great. Interior finish is very good. The seats don't have a lot of length. A taller driver might not be comfortable. The steering is excellent. It's very quiet and comfortable at highway speed. The bottomline for me, however, is it's a front-driver with a brittle low-speed ride. I'll pass.
  • I am an internet sales manager at a VW store in Dallas and here is my take on this car:
    If you take our loaded VR6 4motion with navigation and sit it next to the benchmark car(CLS) you will quickly see that for 30k less, you get, in my opinion, a more attractive car with 90% of the content and driving character. This is a simple decision. I am selling faster than I can get 'em.

    THE BEST DESIGN SINCE THE SIROCCO.
  • Beautiful body. But I can't stomach the two-tone beige/black seats. I don't want all black interior. Looking to replace my 2000 A4 and thinking of Acura or Lexus; my German cars have required too much costly repairs for me. Thought this might be a good (fantastic!) alternative (but back in the German fold) but can't stand the two-tone.
  • bobgwtwbobgwtw Posts: 187
    I agree. the cornsilk/black just doesn't work with some of the exterior colors, and black isn't practical here in the hot south. I've been waiting for this car, and drove a luxury 2.0 today. Came away a little disapointed. Absolutely lousy visibility, entry/exit hampered by the steep rake of the windshield, a sunroof that won't open, seats that - to me - are less comfortable that the Passat; and an extra four grand for the luxury features over the standard seems a little steep to me.

    It still drives great, but an TSX Acura is a more practical car that also drives well and offers a better value and probably better resale; and when they put the diesel in it next year I'll be there with checkbook in hand to replace the Avalon,

    I test drove the Luxury model yesterday and while very impressed with styling I could not get past the jittery ride. I am wondering if any one else has experienced this with this car or was there something wrong with the car I test drove?

    Would love to hear other impressions...
  • bobgwtwbobgwtw Posts: 187
    I drove a Luxury yesterday and was impressed with the ride & handling at 65-70 on the interstate. It was a little stiff at 25-40 mph on some of the local streets, but not objectionably so. To me it was a reasonable trade off for the excellent ride & handling on the road.
  • CC is way cool looking. I loved the two tone seats but I only saw them w/silver exterior. Too bad, as I am tired of seeing too many silver cars. Interior looked well put together and exterior design smacks of MB, new Accord and BMW. This is a good thing as I think all are sharp cars. Loaded with V6 and nav, sticker was $41,900 or so. Damed expenseive for a VW. 4 cly with nav was $7K less, a bit better. Base looked to be $29 and change. Great looking car and effort from VW, let's see how they hold up. Hopefully typical (electrical) gremlins won't be in this model.
  • keithlkeithl Posts: 106
    Yeah I was attracted to this car after seeing pics, but $42K for the V6 sport loaded is a bit high for a VW, you are smack in G37 low end BMW territory and honeslty a different class, but a loaded Genesis is $40K and may likely be more reliable, just more of a luxury ride.
  • I think I have one of the first CC in Miami. I bought my car a week ago in Ft.Lauderdale, and I have not seen any on the streets of Miami. It is really cool to see people looking at my car and wondering what it is. I am writing here because I cannot get my iPod to work. I have a USB sync cable, and like mentioned here, it does not work. The dealer has no idea where I can find the cable that I need, and the car manual is almost useless (with outdated info). I have no idea where I can find this "special cable"...?
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    Since you probably have the new touch screen nav then there is a cable. Part number is 000 051 446 C. It's in stock and just write it down and show it to the parts person. This is the required iPod cable. It's one of those special order parts though they may have it there. Hope this helps.

    Guys, will there be a CC Prices Paid and Lease Questions Forum as there are for other makes and models or is this being rolled up under the Passat forums?
    I am gearing up to leasing possibly buying a CC in the next couple of months and these forums are always invaluable when people contribute.
    Cheers

    Why don't you ask the hosts of that board? You can leave a post them in this discussion: Requests Here.

    Good luck with your pursuit and keep us posted!
  • I think I got a good deal on mines. The MSRP for the luxury with navi is about $35k and I got it for $32k. I leased for 39 months / 15k miles and inception costs ($2k) and the payments where $500. I added $5k insurance so I can turn it in without worrying and I extended the b2b warranty to cover the complete lease. In comparison, the new A4 was about the same but it was bare bones. This car really has everything that I wanted, except bluetooth. Hope this helps...
