2017 CC vs 2017 TLX: Which premium sedan is better?
While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it's easy to be won over by the sleek and beautiful coupe-like design of the CC. It really draws you in with its stylish grille, Bi-Xenon headlights and hood design, which correspond closely to the clean lines of Volkswagen’s “design DNA” philosophy. At the rear, the CC’s distinctive LED taillights finish with a horizontal sweep at their lower ends. The distinctive look of these lights makes the CC unmistakable from the rear — day or night. The license plate is illuminated with LED lighting as well.
Another advantage of the 2017 CC is its luxurious and comfortable interior. Each CC model features a blend of luxurious materials, rich textures and intuitive controls.
