First Look: Volkswagen CC R-Line

Sporty new look, sportier performance.

by on May.29, 2012

Volkswagen officially reveals the new CC R-Line this week in Germany. U.S. sales begin later this year.

Only a few months after revealing its updated, coupe-like sedan Volkswagen is ready to give the CC some more muscle, introducing the sporty new R-Line edition.

Set to reach U.S. showrooms later this year, it’s the latest in a fast-growing series of “R” models that includes the new Golf R.

The Volkswagen CC R-Line will feature a more aggressive face, with a larger lower air intake, unique bumper and projector-style foglamps and the distinctive R-Line logo will grace the grille.

The Full Story!

Other exterior revisions include new side skirts, distinctively tinted taillamps, 18-inch alloy wheels and, when you open the doors, R-Line sill plates.

The interior gets a few key modifications, as well, including stainless steel pedals and a new multi-function steering wheel with paddle shifters if you opt for the 6-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox.

VW is hinting at production plans for the Beetle R concept -- if it gets a good response at the LA show.

You think only the Chinese are good at copying?  Well, take a closer look at what the Germans have in store, notably the folks up at Volkswagen headquarters in Wolfsburg, where they appear to be readying their own version of the vaunted BMW M series, shifting down the alphabet and coming up with the new VW R line.

The new Volkswagen R GmbH subsidiary has already tipped its hands with the Golf R and Scirocco models, the potential next-in-line offering making its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this past September.

With the Volkswagen Beetle R Concept now crossing the Atlantic for a North American debut at the L.A. Auto Show it appears the prototype is going to make the jump to production, as well.

The concept offers a glimpse of how the Beetle will look when equipped with different bumpers with three contrasting air intakes and a front spoiler/air splitter, 20-inch wheels with five triple spokes and blue R brake calipers.


First Look: 2013 Volkswagen CC

Coupe-like sedan to pick up some styling cues from new Passat.

by on Nov.04, 2011

The 2013 Volkswagen CC will borrow some familial cues from the hot new VW Passat.

While the new Passat and Beetle models may be getting most of the headlines, few cars have done more to shift Volksawagen’s visual image than the strikingly curvaceous CC.

Three years into the model-run, Volkswagen will be making some modest to significant changes to  thecoupe-like sedan, the 2013 CC getting  freshened front and rear fascia that will adopt the styling theme of the new Passat.

The maker is hoping to ramp up demand for what is unarguably the most aggressively styled vehicle in its line-up at a time when it is pushing to achieve global dominance – and regain its once tight grip on the import market in the U.S.

The 2013 Volkswagen CC will make its formal bow at this month’s L.A. Auto Show, though the maker is offering a sneak peek at what it has in store.
