Stylish and sleek, the CC is a four-door coupe with agile handling. Power comes from a punchy turbocharged four-cylinder, which returned 26 mpg overall, or a strong V6. The ride is good and cabin finish is first-rate. But the rear seat is tight. All-wheel drive is optional.

The sleek VW that turns heads... by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/11/2012. Trim: 2013 Volkswagen CC VR6 Lux, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the exterior asthetics and the simple, clean interior design. The LED DRLs, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, and the rear alien-like LED CC symbols turn lots of heads on the road, especially at night. The above average premium sound system, 3D view option for the navi, apple-friendly connection via a special compartment, panoramic skyview, interior ambient lighting (screams awesome!), and the sounds generated by the engine+exhaust is clean (be sure to put it on sport mode or use tiptronic for manual shifting).
Cons: It's unfortunate that the panoramic roof isn't retractable, but that's why it's called a moon-roof I guess... No DSG transmission for the VR6; navi is not snappy enough for my taste (i like snappy response, just like my iPhone 4S); the bass on the sound system could be a little better.
Overall review: It's my first German vehicle (previously owned Acura, Toyota, Nissan, and Jeep) and I LOVE IT! Trust me, the car shines best at night when all the lights are on with the panoramic moon roof tilted up. This car isn't the fastest kid on the block, but it sure is one of the better looking ones. ;)
