The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.6
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 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
