With options a CC is bumping into $40K territory and has worse residual value. On a lease, the 328 is really not much more expensive.
You mean the same styling as the current Mercedes CLS, BMW Gran Coupe and similar to the Audi A7? And I'm not looking to spend $40K on a CC, the Sport model is about $31K well enough optioned for me.
