2010 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
I was cross-shopping the Jetta TDI & Audi A3 TDI due to their fuel economy. But at the VW dealership I was drawn to the CC, as most people are. I have owned a BMW 325xi and X3 and prefer "driver's cars." The CC is definitely a joy to drive. The power delivery is smooth, yet it is fuel efficient. The steering is a touch light compared to my BMWs. Highway mileage 32- 36 and 27.1 overall after 2000 mi. The interior cabin is roomy and drowns out the exterior noise. The rear seat also feels spacious (although may be a little low for taller people). Touchscreen radio is fun to play around with. A great commuting/daily driver. Would be perfect as an "only car" if it could fit 5.
Engine is smooth yet powerful, best mileage in its class, touchscreen radio, bluetooth (standard!), comfortable seats, exterior styling a head-turner. 3yr/36k free standard maintenance differentiates VW from competition
Please give us the option to get a rear bench seat! Offer a TDI engine. More/bigger places to store/hide things. Make iPod connector a standard feature. Driver memory for power seats. "Smart Key" or keyless ignition.
