The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some practicality in the name of fashion, and feels like a luxury car in many respects. The 2013 Nissan Maxima offers a lot more flair than the typical larger sedan, along with premium feel inside; but driving enthusiasts should be aware that it isn't quite a serious sport sedan.
