In any event, that was then and this is now. Right now I have seen VW lease "deals" of about $200 or so a month on a GOLF. Not a Jetta. Not a CC. A Golf.
And, no offense on the styling, but the CC reminds me of the Dodge Intrepid that I had as a company fleet vehicle for a few years;
As I said, styling is a personal and subjective thing but I think my new F30 spanks that kind of styling 10 ways from sunday.
Sorry, I rounded up
MSRP was something like $28,500 or so. It was during an employee pricing event.
A couple of months ago I was getting emails of 2-3 local VW dealers offering the CC for $229. VW's offer was $299, so it was being bettered at the dealer level.
Before the CC I had leaseda Jetta SE with a $21k sticker for $129 a month, again, about $100 less a month than the VW national campaign.
I see your Intrepid example and well, I am not going to whip out the E-pen as knowing better for coming from an car design back-ground, but it's a bit silly. In certain colors, if the architecture is the same(i.e, black FWD sedan) you can try and build a case that any car can look like or remind someone of another.
Fact is, the CC at launch was nearly universally heralded as a very clean, very appealing design.
Your opinion is valid, it's your own. But your dis-like of the CC's looks puts you in the minority.
