Bang for the buck
By jsbonger on
2010 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Have been waiting to put some miles(4K) before writing this review. Traded in 2k BMW 323 for a newer car with maintenance program and warranty. Considered Mazdaspeed 3, Subaru Legacy and WRX, Audi A3, as well as GTI and Golf TDI, but the lease, maintenance, and family size closed the deal. The car drives nicely with good performance from the turbo 4, however there is some turbo lag most noticeable on steep hills. Handling is very good but it is not a BMW. The steering feel is a bit light, not like the bimmer. So far no major maintenance issues. I have driven from SD to Paso Robles and averaged 32+ MPG @ 78MPH on stage 1 APR tune. Has all the basics I need for a good highway cruiser.
Manual transmission, MPG, overall performance, large enough trunk to fit road bike, rear leg room, looks more expensive than the price.
Roof rack attachments just incase you want/need roof rack. Memory seat in base models. Optional/convertible 5th seat.
