Rivals to the 2017 Volkswagen CC fall into what you might call the near-luxury class.
The Audi A4 is an entirely new design with all the latest technology features, though it's surprisingly hard to notice it's new from the outside and its rear seat is cramped.
The Volvo S60 is almost as old as the CC, but its lines have aged very well and it offers sportier driving, plus new engines in some models that deliver vastly improved fuel-economy ratings.
The Acura TLX is another good alternative and is available with a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system.
The Lincoln MKZ offers more interior space, but a remarkably plain interior.
Perhaps the Nissan Maxima is closest to the CC in spirit; it too is a new, high-fashion sedan based on a more mainstream four-door (in this case, the Altima).
The latest Maxima shape is a dramatic, exciting spin on the familiar mechanicals underneath, just as the CC was all those years ago.
