The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some usability for style; it's a grown-up's compromise between a true two-door coupe and a stodgier sedan. The 2014 Acura TL is an attractive, comfortable, well-appointed luxury sedan. Choose the SH-AWD model, and you have yourself a legitimate sport sedan, too.
