The most affordable four door-coupe, the Volkswagen CC, which made
its debut four years ago and have been sold in nearly 270,000 exemplars
since then, has received a faceift.
The automaker claims that the
technically and visually updated 2013 Volkswagen CC has crossed over to
the luxury class, but we’ll let you be the judge of that. In the
meantime we will tell you that the new CC features various styling teaks
at the front and back, with the most important changes targeting the
headlights and taillights which now incorporate LEDs, plus the car is
now equipped with new bumpers, a shiny new chrome grille and newly
designed alloys.  
The facelift version 2013 Volkswagen CC is
also offered with a more generous list of standard items on which
customers will find bi-xenon headlights, static cornering lights, the
RCD 310 radio-CD system, fatigue detection and safety head restraints
with longitudinal adjustment for the front seats.
New assistance
systems are also available on the 2013 CC such as the optional Side
Assist Plus with integrated Lane Assist, Dynamic Light Assist and a
camera-based traffic sign detection system.
The engine lineup
available for the 2013 Volkswagen CC remains the same with TDI units
that output between 140 PS (103 kW) and 170 PS (125 kW) and petrols
delivering either 160 PS (118 kW), 210 PS (155 kW) or 300 PS (220 kW).
In the USA the 2013 CC will be available with two petrols : a 200 PS (147 kW) TSI and a 280 PS (206 kW) FSI.
petrols and diesels are now equipped with battery regeneration mode for
recovering brake energy, while the diesels also received Stop Start
The facelifted CC will premiere at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 18th and is scheduled to go on sale shorty after that. The first market to offer the new CC will be Germany in February 2012.
