[YesAuto Test Drive] What car can be praised by the European media as “the most beautiful Volkswagen in history”? What kind of car runs counter to Volkswagen's consistent low-key style? In addition to Scirocco, there is also a Volkswagen CC! Since it entered the country, people have begun to rethink the Volkswagen brand. In fact, they are not unable to build beautiful cars, but they have been poised for this kind of power, and finally broke out on the Volkswagen CC. Of course, I It is also not denied that Scirocco will add the word “more” to this definition.
It's called “CC” only because of the definition of Comfort Coupe, right! It is a gorgeous, dynamic, comfortable and individual alternative model. Just after the end of the market last night, 100 Volkswagen CCs shuttled through the streets of Shanghai at the same time. There was a lot of turning heads, including the glances from waiting for the red light. I knew that it was not purely because of the huge fleet; the lines are beautiful and unique. The visual impact is the key point that the parties have to look at!
The test of the imported CC was handed over to me. This time I tested the FAW-Volkswagen CC. I will naturally recall some of the scenes at that time. It is also better than seeing whether it has regressed or shrunk after the domestic production. After all, the price has dropped by nearly 15%. Ten thousand is really not a small number. (Note: The model for this test drive is the CC 2.0T Extreme Edition with optional packages, such as paddle shift functions)
There is almost no change in appearance, the same fierce front face, the same tough lines, frameless windows and large black sunroof. The only difference is that this CC has been affixed with the “FAW-Volkswagen” logo on the rear of the car! You must know that this is also one of the only characteristics that distinguishes identities. I have tried to find changes with wheels, but the domestically produced CC is still the size of 235 45R17, which makes me feel gratified, because of its existence, CC is still that CC, it is still so stretched and full of dynamic!
Manufacturers need to pay attention to two points in the promotion, one is the frameless door, and the other is the panoramic sunroof. Fortunately for the former, the rare design is worth paying attention to. However, there are some topics in the second design. What about the panoramic sunroof configuration given by the manufacturer? It's just because the sunroof area is larger than that of a normal car. In addition, from the roof of the car, the black glass area occupies a lot of area, so the above definition was born. If you don’t care about anything like me, it doesn’t matter if you call it that way.
It must be reiterated that the area of the sunroof of CC is indeed not small, and the span has been connected to the welding place of the roof. Perhaps it is for this reason. Its sunroof cannot be opened backwards, it can only be raised to a certain angle, which is a pity. ; However, it can be seen from this point that it is exactly the same as the imported version.
In fact, from the inside out, the difference between “domestic” and “imported” is not too much. For example, the interior is basically the same. The new generation of Volkswagen's center console and steering wheel styles (same as Golf 6) are in sight; metal brushed The same is true for the panel, if you don’t look closely, it’s really hard to find the difference. However, there is definitely a difference, but you should not draw the conclusion of “shrinking” prematurely, because FAW-Volkswagen CC has high-end equipment that the imported version does not have! Wait and see…
Continue to “regret” the details:
For some reason, there are still no handles designed in the domestic CC cars. Is the manufacturer so confident in the car's seat wrapping? I think this is totally understandable, but for most passengers, they would rather believe in their own arm strength than easily believe in the sponge on the seat cushion, don't they?
The missing details:
1. On the center console of the imported CC, there is a concealable car phone keypad, but unfortunately it disappeared after being made in China, and replaced by a storage box. From the perspective of use, it has completed a small improvement, but in terms of grade, it has slipped a big step! This issue has been approved by the majority in the exchange of peers.
2. The DCC adaptive chassis control system did not appear in the domestic CC, which means that such a sports car needs to make an important decision after it is unable to adjust the suspension stiffness and steering strength! Then choose to directly position the suspension stiffness as sporty or to keep the comfort as much as possible? Through the test drive, it told me that in the end, I still prefer the latter.
New or continued high-end equipment:
1. It is good news that FAW-Volkswagen equips the domestic CC with a set of intelligent driving assistance system, also known as ACC. Its functions are very powerful, including adaptive cruise function, lane keeping system, intelligent parking assistance system and automatic parking. Car assist function.
What is ACC? Let me talk about one of the functions-adaptive cruise. The simple explanation is that the vehicle can automatically maintain the distance from the vehicle in front in the cruising state. The sensor is designed on the back of the Volkswagen LOGO on the front grille and can be turned on at speeds above 30km/h. With this function, once the vehicle detects that it is getting closer to the vehicle in front, it will automatically take appropriate braking, slow down the vehicle and continue to maintain the set safe distance.
In the activated state of ACC, if the distance to the vehicle in front is too close and a collision is about to occur, the system will brake and counsel the vehicle with sound and light (light is the instrument panel display) to remind the driver, and remove the driver from The state of distraction wakes up.
Under normal circumstances, its automatic braking effect is relatively soft, and the driver and passengers will not feel so abrupt, but when an emergency comes, the system will also send a signal to remind you that you need to brake independently! Since this state cannot be demonstrated in today's test drive, we still need to wait until the test car arrives before drawing conclusions.
Lane keeping system-it needs to be effective when the vehicle speed exceeds 60km/h. The system uses turn signals and detectors to determine whether the vehicle is likely to deviate from the actual route, that is, if the vehicle starts to move towards one direction unknowingly Side offset, one of which may be that the turn signal is not turned on. At this time, the system will determine that the lane has been deflected, and at the same time it will automatically turn the steering wheel slightly to maintain the previous driving trajectory.
It sounds weird. What I saw before was a reminder function, such as using the vibrations on both sides of the seat cushion or the steering wheel to remind the driver, but today’s “new error correction method” is that the active steering behavior occurs directly. It's really more advanced from a sense point of view! However, whether this active operation that is not controlled by the driver is accurate and whether it is suitable for the road conditions or driving conditions at the time, I can’t believe it 100% at the moment. I can only say that as the user experience in the future becomes more and more, the feedback is from there. The most credible.
The reversing system of the domestic CC is very comprehensive! The reversing image can adjust the longitudinal and lateral parking indicator lines, and it also has the direct display distance of the car radar. The camera is integrated in the Volkswagen Logo at the rear of the car. When the gear is pushed into the “R”, it will automatically flip out, which is very technical.
Finally, let’s take a brief look at the continued “good design”, such as the gray suede seats with excellent personality and texture; the high-end Dynaudio speakers are also retained on the domestic CC, which includes a 6.5-inch multi-function touch screen , AUX, USB interface, 6 CDs and 10 high-level speakers. In the configuration list, the CC Deluxe Edition also gives an optional package of 10 speakers, but what is different is that the speakers of the top models are still better!
The space seat is still a four-seater design, with individuality but limited practicality
Like the imported model, the domestic CC also uses a 4-seater design, that is, two independent seats are designed in the rear, separated by an armrest-like part in the middle, which also has a built-in storage compartment. I don’t think I need to say more about the introduction of this location. After all, the experience has been done before. If you know the space of the car, you can click on the picture below to enter the “Yuppies' New Favorite!” Test the test article of “Imported Volkswagen CC 2.0TSI”.
FAW-Volkswagen CC also has a certain degree of innovation in the power system. The previous 6-speed tiptronic automatic transmission was replaced by the more advanced 6-speed DSG, and the 210-horsepower 2.0TSI engine was also low-key changed to 200 horsepower, 280N. m, exactly the same as Magotan's.
Since a 6-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox is used, the driving feel is naturally different from the imported CC. The throttle is gentler, the pedal response is slower, and the gear shift is faster. This is exactly the characteristic of DSG. ! In other words, the driving conditions of the domestic CC and Magotan 2.0T are actually very close!
Under normal circumstances, CC can provide comfort-oriented driving characteristics. The transmission from the steering wheel to the gearbox to the suspension is all explained around the word. Of course, in order to preserve a certain degree of sportiness, it is also in some details. Some flavors that should be exuded from the top, such as the support of the suspension and the directivity of the steering are more felt than the Magotan!
In D-block, the power of 2.0T is suppressed as much as possible. I don't feel surprised about this. The diligent shifting and the consistent characteristics of DSG are just this kind of performance at hand, which is normal. Maybe I don't need to introduce too much. Through the previous series of articles, you can also guess how to stimulate its potential.
That's right! The answer is S gear driving or rude high-throttle action! That kind of excitement is indeed a bit abrupt, and a bit scary. When the speed instantly climbed to 3000rpm, the powerful torque burst even the 235mm tires would be a little weak, and slipping occurred continuously during driving. In fact, this is also a provocative test in today's rainy road conditions.
Undoubtedly, the FAW-Volkswagen CC is definitely a representative of the sports type with handsome appearance and distinctive personality. Even if it is taken care of by comfort and gentle processing by DSG, the strength of the 2.0T engine cannot be completely concealed, and the embodiment of sports is not. There are obstacles. If you have to tell the subjective difference between it and the imported version, I think it should be slower or more mature.
In terms of price, the domestically produced CC 2.0T is nearly 150,000 lower than before! This is first of all an advantage, and in today's contact, we are still delighted to see more. Frustration is inevitable. Fortunately, the proportion of the latter is very small. It is a pity to give up DCC, but what can consumers get? There are a few simple factors, such as DSG gearbox, ACC adaptive cruise system, reversing image, automatic parking assist or Dynaudio. You may say that some things can only be regarded as a continuation. I completely agree, but if you are more sensible Think about it, how many cars have been castrated more because of domestic production? As long as joy is greater than disappointment.
