The 2013 Volkswagen CC really competes against two different tiers of vehicles: mass-market sedans, like the Camry, Accord, and Sonata; or entry-level sport sedans such as the Acura A4, Acura TL, or Volvo S60.
Compared to any of these luxury models, the CC's tight back seat space isn't any worse.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS sedan looks quite a bit like the CC from a distance, at least in profile, but the CLS models cost tens of thousands more.
The Audi A4 has a tighter interior, though it's somewhat better trimmed and drives more like a pure sport sedan.
The Acura TL is another good alternative and is available in top performance guise with a manual transmission and all-wheel drive.
The Volvo S60 is also somewhat sportier on the road than the CC, although it doesn't feel all that much more luxurious.
