2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 Sport

The Good The 2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 Sport is a really good-looking sedan with a luxurious interior. Its engine delivers power and good fuel economy, and the driving experience is smooth. The navigation system shows live traffic and the audio system is very clear.

The Bad The cabin electronics are beset by odd problems, such as difficulty copying music to the car's hard drive and a navigation system that can be hard to use.

The Bottom Line A really beautiful sedan, the 2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 Sport returns decent fuel economy and a comfortable ride, but the cutting-edge cabin tech has a few faults, and the car is pricey.
