2013 Volkswagen CC vs. Its Competition

2013 Volkswagen CC
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The extent of the changes for 2013 is relatively minor, in our opinion.

Don't hesitate to buy a 2012 model instead if you can find a great deal on one.

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2013 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some practicality in the name of fashion, and feels like a luxury car in many respects.
8.0
The 2013 Acura TL is a comfortable, attractive, and well-equipped luxury sedan--but in top SH-AWD guise it morphs into something that even driving enthusiasts will find compelling.
8.2
Magnificent design and technology sets the Audi A4 apart, but it's not quite as sporty as its BMW and Cadillac competition.
8.4
Carrying forward 2012's more muscular looks with inimitable style, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class gets new high-tech options while keeping its surprising performance.
7.6
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.
