As I was driving home last night I found myself trying to remember how much the Volkswagen CC costs. I figured this particular one was about $33,000 or so, so I was shocked later when I saw the $28,225 listed on the Monroney (window sticker); for a moment I thought it was for the wrong car and had to double check. $28,000? That's what a loaded-up GTI or Jetta GLI might cost.
It amazes me that the CC has such a wide range in price per trim level, from the front-wheel-drive 2.0T manual we tested, starting at $27,100, to a VR6 4Motion that flirts with the $40,000 mark. Volkswagen did a good job with the CC. It gives young Golf and Jetta owners a car to aspire to as they grow up, someone who isn't quite ready to buy a Passat or an Audi A4.
