Drivetime With Vinnie Richichi – Road Test: 2013 Hyundai Azera

We already know that Hyundai can build a pretty spectacular small car but how do they do when they dip their toes into the luxury end of the pool? If the Hyundai Azera that I recently put through its paces is any indication, they swim pretty good at the deep end.

The 2013 Volkswagen CC may be the German automakers best bigger car effort yet. The CC brings the smart design of the Passat to the table but then adds a sports coupe look and feel to it. The result is an attractive, unique looking car that while may not for everyone, is sure a car that will get a second look when it is driving down the street.
