The 2015 Volkswagen CC's main competitors fit into two different groups: on one side are mass-market sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Sonata; and on the other side, entry-level sport sedans such as the Acura A4, Acura TLX, and Volvo S60.
Compared to the Camry and Accord, the CC just isn't as practical or comfortable--the back seat is smaller, the driver's seating position is odd, and it costs slightly more.
But compared to any of these luxury models, the CC's back seat space isn't any worse.
The Audi A4 has a tighter interior, though it's somewhat better trimmed and drives more like a pure sport sedan.
The Acura TLX is another good alternative and is available with a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system.
The Volvo S60 is also somewhat sportier to drive than the CC, although it doesn't feel all that much more luxurious.
While the Mercedes-Benz CLS looks quite a bit like the CC from a distance, at least in profile, the larger CLS models cost tens of thousands more.
