2009 Mazda Mazda6 Long-Term Road Test

2009 Mazda 6: Better than a VW CC 2.0T?

May 19, 2009


Last night on Edmunds.com we published a comparison test between our long-term Mazda 6 Grand Touring and a Volkswagen CC 2.0T. It's a test I've been wanting to do for quite sometime. Two stylish four-cylinder four-doors that both cost right around $30,000 and prove that mainstream family sedans don't have to be boring.

I'm not going to tell you which car won it, but I will tell you that my personal hard earned money would be payed monthly for the better looking and more powerful VW. As much as I like the Mazda 6, I really like driving the CC. Plus, I'm a sucker for its Ferrari Daytona inspired leather upholstery.

Which would you rather have parked in your garage?
