Fuel Efficiency

Volkswagen has manufactured models of CC for 9 years. They average 24.3 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2017 CC above average at 25 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2017 CC to be $1,950 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and premium gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $2,500 more over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The CC consumes about 13 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The CC emits 349 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 5,235,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 249 trees would offset these emissions. The CC does not have start-stop technology.
