2013 Volkswagen CC R-Line Revealed

2013 Volkswagen CC R-Line Revealed

It’s been a few months since Volkswagen revealed its updated 2013 CC model, and now the German automaker has added the sporty, R-Line as an available trim level.

The more aggressive and sporty CC R-Line comes with a new front bumper sporting larger intakes and bigger fog lights, new side skirts, tinted taillights, R-badging on the grille and 18-inch wheels on all four corners. The interior gets a few accessories as well with stainless steel pedals and doorsill plates with R-Line branding.

The R-Line variant also makes several options standard, including rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated 12-way power front seats, and those with the six-speed automatic gets paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The CC R-Line does have a manual transmission option and is powered by the standard 2.0-liter turbo-four with 200-hp.

No pricing has been released yet, we expect to hear numbers when the R-Line makes it to America later this year.

    Um… it looks the same. And how bout a real R for the CC?

  • I’m with you.  If VW would deliver an R version of the CC and Passat, they’d get a whole new audience from the other manufacturers.  I think the hesitancy though is it could raise issue for one of their children, Audi.  The GLI and the 4dr GTI and now Golf R are the only options for those of us wanting some realy power and fun in a VW.  VW’s smart and they probably see something in terms of market receptivity that I am not, but it could make my decision between a Passat and a used Audi A6 or A8 a lot easier by releasing a powered-up R version of the great new Passat (add in some rear air vents while you’re at it).
    The CC R-line has confused me as I attribute R with Volvo and others as a powered-up road moster version.  The CC R-line hasn’t met that expectation.  The silky smooth VR6 version is  great, but the pop of the 4-turbo is the choice for city drivers.
