Read on. $27,480 $41,980 as tested, EPA fuel estimates 17-21 MPG city, MPG highway.

First Glance: You beast

Most car fans Volkswagen’s first attempt at a car, the ill-fated (ill-phaeted?) The Phaeton was a truly brilliant Fast, comfortable, and technically One could make a convincing that it was equal (if not superior) to the BMW and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Unfortunately, just couldn’t get their around the idea of paying to $100,000 for a Volkswagen. The Phaeton poorly, and I understand you can pick up a one for a song. (Something I would consider, by the way.)

The CC is Volkswagen’s second attempt at a car. It employs the sleek, four door coupe pioneered by the Mercedes-Benz CLS. the sexy skin, the CC is basically a Pricing is much more than the Phaeton; the CC starts out at and tops out at $43,255, a price people seem to be willing to pay for a as proven by the success of the Touareg And the CC really is a beautiful car — I it’s even better than the Mercedes CLS, and the of familiar Volkswagen styling enhances the CC’s beauty.

The trunk stows 13 cubic feet — 3/4ths the trunk volume of the Volkswagen Jetta .

One bright is the CC’s new touch-screen navigation The dial-operated nav found in other VWs is question the worst in the biz, but the new system fixes all of the old one’s It’s easy to program, to calculate, and has a crisp, clear, and display. plus it includes an backup camera.
