Volkswagen CC (12-16) - rated 4 out of 5

The Volkswagen CC (or comfort coupe) has been sold under its own name since 2012, but was introduced to the market in 2008 as the Passat CC.

Longer, wider, and lower than the Passat saloon it is based on, the CC combines a sloping roofline and back doors like a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe or Audi A5 Sportback.

Crucially though it retains a saloon style boot lid rather than a hatchback like the German models mentioned above.
