2009 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I purchased the sport trim w/ Bluetooth+Sirius radio. I traded in an '01 Audi A4. The car is overall superb. The car rivals the BMW/A4 models in the 30-40k class even in the sport model. Outside: The car looks better in person. The aesthetics are more in-line with a Lexus IS250 as opposed to a VW. Inside: Regardless of what trim you select the car comes with numerous amenities normally expected ala carte. Pay close attention to the standard list. The 2.0L turbo 4 cyl engine is deceptively powerful in tandem with the transmission. Even the non-leather V-tex seating has a leather feel to it. Leather wrapped steering wheel, power adjustable heated seats, climate control...
Standard amenities expected in a luxury vehicle. 2.0L 4 cylinder turbo is surprisingly powerful - I had my doubts until the test drive. Back seat is expansive - this is a sporty family sedan w/ sophisticated looks. A married man's dream. On-screen compass, temperature.
Paddle shifters for the Tiptronic like the V6 trim. Hard-top convertible trim like the EOS would put this over the top. Chrome/stainless exhaust tips instead of the galvanized. Remove Passat from the name - this car certainly does not compare to the Passat and deserves its own lineage.
