When is a Volkswagen not a Volkswagen? If by Volkswagen, you mean the "people's car" as it was initially intended, then the answer is: When it starts costing thirty to forty grand. But even with new pricing in place, the Volkswagen CC is still a far cheaper proposition to other German "four-door coupes" like the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, Audi A5 Sportback and A7 and the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe.

Whereas the MSRP on the outgoing model started at $28,514, the freshly updated 2013 model starts at $30,250. That, of course, is just the starting price for the base model with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Start piling on the options - especially big-ticket upgrades like the VR6 engine and 4Motion all-wheel drive - and you're quickly looking at a price starting at $41,420 for the top-of-the-line Executive model.

The adjusted pricing puts it well into the company of entry-level models from luxury marques, but if you shun badge snobbery enough to consider dropping that kind of cash on a VW, consider as well that it's also comparable in both pricing and specification to the new Hyundai Azera we recently drove.
