TCC’s Bottom Line
Magnificent design and technology sets the Audi A4 apart, but it's not quite as sporty as its BMW and Cadillac competition. 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. The 2013 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some practicality in the name of fashion, and feels like a luxury car in many respects.
