2010 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I just came from a BMW Z4M roadster and a BMW 330Ci and I am seriously impressed by this car. You will be hard pressed to find a more luxurious, smooth, and refined car for under $30,000. The car is not fast in the way that a 5-series BMW is, but it is no slouch either. The 2.0 L turbo is a gem of an engine, and the car is as smooth as butter. It does have a fair amount of body roll but then again this car is more Mercedes than it is BMW. The interior is first rate and has near Audi levels of style inside. With the 6-speed manual this car is actually quite fun to drive. There is quite a bit of understeer though, for obvious reasons. The exterior on this car is its piece de resistance!
The interior as a whole is my favorite feature. From the top notch seats to the well styled and easy to read gauges, it's superb. Also, the incredible smoothness in every aspect of this car is nice as well. The engine is impossible not to love. Not very potent but oh so smooth! The body, love it!
The car sits way to high up and leaves an odd gap between the tires and body. It needs to be lowered about 1.5" to make it look proper. Memory settings on the power seats would be nice. Knowing that it is not a sports car and not expecting certain things from it. I have very few gripes.
