2009 Volkswagen CC 4Motion new car reviews

Better than: Audi A4
But not as good as: Hyundai Genesis Sedan
GRM Bang For The Buck Index: 79.85

A Volkswagen CC appeared on our doorstep last week, and the car turned out to be a pretty swell way to get around.

The interior was comfortable and tasteful, and the ride felt composed under a variety of conditions. By most accounts, the CC also a very handsome car. If you're looking for something with more sophisticated styling than its price tag would suggest, this car might be just the ticket.

The CC is no sports car, but the V6 was smooth and capable. It wasn't wanting for power on the highway, but the car simply didn't stir much excitement in our souls.

We put some highway miles on this one, and for that it's nearly perfect--comfortable, quiet and powerful enough. Plus it has a big trunk, tons of interior room and distinctive looks.

Any negatives? Not really. Some of the center controls felt a little cheap--the rest of the car is really high-class--and VW has spoiled us with their DSG transmissions. This one gets the Tiptronic. It's good, but it's no DSG. The DSG will spoil you rotten.
