The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Volkswagen CC splits the difference between sleek coupe lines and four-door convenience—it's a grown-up compromise. The 2016 Lincoln MKZ is missing some heritage, but this luxury sedan is no longer missing the sportier new direction that could do this brand some good.
