Comfort coupe is a perfect name for this car. The seats and the ride are the most comfortable I have ever had. The coupe is very responsive, thanks to the R-Line handling package. It has great acceleration with the turbo yet the 2.0 gets great gas mileage. Best car I have owned.
I've had several Volvos before buying this used CC, which also has a European feel. The new Buick Regal was the runner up, but the interior felt like I was driving a big plastic toy. The Volkswagen interior feels more luxurious and well made. Mostly I wanted a grown-up interior in my car and this CC has it with sleek leatherette seats and good finishes. The stereo speakers are only OK, however.
The CC will not be confused with a sports car but it handles fine in curves and has a surprising amount of torque. The brakes are somewhat mushy. However, overall the car feels nimble and safe. The headlights that "look around" the corner are a great safety feature.
