2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 4Motion 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Just found this car when I was about to turn in my 530xi, and by every measure, it is MUCH more refined and luxurious than that car, at about 35% less cost. Styling inside and out is superb, and just about every time I get out of the car someone is asking what it is -- no one can believe it is a VW. Absolutely stellar for the price, or even several thousand more. Anyone considering any of the German/Japan luxury marks should take a look at this, you will be utterly amazed.
Interior detail and quality are second to no car I have ever owned (BMW, Audi, Jag, Land Rover). Best central computer and simple controls on the market. As fun/quick as BMW, Audi, and all-wheel drive crushes the 530xi. Unlike Benz or BMW, 90% of the features you would want are standard.
Minor issue with back seat (2 seats vs 3) but not a showstopper. EVERYTHING else is top notch quality and enjoy every second in this car.
