The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Buick Regal is a worthy sport sedan with arresting looks and sweet handling--so long as you stick with the turbos. The 2013 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some practicality in the name of fashion, and feels like a luxury car in many respects.
