2010 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car without question is one of the best sport sedan values on the market. Although I have owned performance-oriented cars in the past, I have been consigned to baby- and kid-hauling minivan purgatory for the last ten years. Since the day I bought it, I can't help but smile every time I get it out on the road. There is only one way to go with a car like this: the six-speed manual transmission (even though it annoyed my automatic-only wife). In the short time I have owned the car, I have noticed that it is a real head Turner. The overall execution of the vehicle is just excellent, from fit and finish to materials choice to vroom factor.
The driver's seat is easily the most comfortable I have ever had in a car. The Bluetooth phone integration is fantastic. It just works. The stereo iPod integration option works well, although fast- forwarding in a podcast is a pain (you have to hold down the button). The transmission just rocks.
Offer the six-cylinder plant with the 6-speed manual like they do in Europe. Fix the nits with the iPod controller. Offer the more luxurious options with the six-speed. The AC is a slow to get cold when the outside temp is near 100 in FL. I have a rattle at 250 mi in the back at high temps.
