2013 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp automated manual FWD I have about a 15/20 minute commute everyday through mainly suburban and city traffic. I am getting about 25 MPG with the 2.0 Turbo...On long trip I am easily averaging in the low ti mid 30s...I really enjoy the balance btw fuel economy and power this car provides

2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp automated manual FWD Love the 30mpg at 80mph...
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp automated manual FWD The cc can easily get 30+ mpg. Coupled with a large fuel tank allows the cc to get 500+ miles on a single tank of gas.
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD The fuel economy is amazing for a fairly large sedan. I can amek 38 mpg on back rural roads if I really tried. Driving "normally" on the same roads I acheive a consistant 34 mpg. My 40 minute higheay commute at 80mph achieves 35 mpg. CC ranges 520 miles.
2009 4dr Sedan 280-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Im coming from a Dodge Ram Mega Cab. There is nothing not to like about the CC fuel economy. After about 2 weeks Im getting around 425 miles to the 18.5 gallon tank.
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD The New TSI engine is a more fuel effecant then the FSI found in the passat.
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 170hp 2.0L I4 Diesel 6-sp automated manual FWD Fir a car this size, 40 mpg is really good
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD compared to american cars: awesome. compared to other cars in europe: average.
Volkswagen CC Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp automated manual FWD Not quite as good as I had hoped. Averaging 28.5 mostly highway. Trip computer is consistently 1 mpg over real world measures at fillup.
2009 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4 6-sp manual FWD Not the greatest, and requires premium. The dealer will weasel this, but 50k miles down the road, you will see why premium was required. That a 10% of better hit on fuel costs.
2009 4dr Sedan 280-hp 3.6L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD was hoping for 22-23 mpg with the all wheel drive and 6cyl. i only have 1500 miles on it so it may improve but so far 20-21 mpg is all i am getting
