Looking much more like a four-door coupe than a sedan, the Volkswagen CC gets high marks for style and pizazz. But it's not all just show; there is plenty of substance, too. With a German sedan always comes the high expectation of uber performance, and the CC doesn't disappoint. Its sharp handling and spot-on steering make it a blast to drive. Under the hood is a highly responsive 200-horsepower 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. As priced here, it sends power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. For older drivers who want to take a break from a manual transmission, a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic is available for $1,100 more.
Among the standard features are run-flat tires, automatic climate control and heated 12-way adjustable power front seats.
Consumer Reports rated front-seat comfort, ride and cabin noise all as "very good."
