2014 Acura TL vs. 2015 Volkswagen CC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura TL than in the Volkswagen CC, due to the Acura TL's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Acura TL will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Volkswagen CC, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura TL or the Volkswagen CC, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TL will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
The Acura TL is a little wider than the Volkswagen CC, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura TL, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen CC.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura TL transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen CC.

Handling
The Acura TL has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen CC, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TL has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Volkswagen CC. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TL as you will in the Volkswagen CC.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TL than that of the Volkswagen CC.
